Covenant Child By Terri Blackstock

Amanda’s heart broke as she watched them drive her beloved twins away. She resolved to hope . . . and to fight for them to her last breath. Kara and Lizzie are heiresses to one of the largest fortunes in the country. But when their father dies suddenly, the toddlers are ripped from the arms of Amanda, their loving stepmother, and given to their maternal grandparents, who only want the children’s fortune for themselves. While even the stipend their guardians get for supporting them is squandered, the children are left to raise themselves. Kara and Lizzie grow up believing they are worthless . . . until the day when they learn the truth.
I love fiction, it totally draws me in, this book was no different. This is a story of twin girls who were taken from their loving Stepmother and placed in the care of their Grandparents when their Father suddenly passes. The grandparents are greedy and deceptive toward the girls and their inheritance but their Stepmother commits to preserving and caring for the girls inheritance until she can reveal to them the truth. This story falls along the lines of deceit and betrayl and opens our eyes as to how Satan tries to hurt us by doing the same as the Grandparents did in the story, but God is preparing a home for us and preserving our fortunes the same way Amanda was for the girls. I do believe this book could have been a series as to develop the characters more and go into more depth about the hurt, anguish & animosity that the girls were caused and then elaborate on the Stepmothers love, patience & mercy she showed towards the children after all these years. I would definitely reccomend this book.
I recieved this review copy from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
