An excellent told story of two sisters with a cruel twist of fate. Terri Blackstock, as usual, keeps your interest throughout the book.

that can bring it hometo all of us.... for she knows who to keep the reader spellbound until the end. This novel was definitely one I was not able to put down until I had finished it.

From the twins losing their mom....then their dad...his parents and even Amanda(step-mother) for a time...living with those evil grandparents(who loved off the twins money)...for these 'billionaire babies' were now living in poverty...definitely a family ripped apart by death and greed....until the twins turned 18... now they could choose between the two lifestyles...which truth would Lizzy and Kara choose? ...lies...of what they had been told by those greedy grandparents or the truth from Amanda...which would be a new life for both of the twins.

Amanda was my favorite character in this novel.... for she was a stepmother that cared deeply for the twins and loved God. Thank God for the friends she had (Joan and Matt) that helped her and helped Amanda to know that God would see her through all of this...just leave it in His hands. Amanda had promised her husband(Jack) that she would take care of his twin girls...should something happen....when it did and it looked like this would not be done.... I will only say their is no limit to a mother's love.. how far she will go....Well, I am going to stop here and just let you read about this in this wonderful read of "Covenant Child." The big question is Will the twins except the truth that will change their lives or not?

The author did a great job with us understanding ...Amanda, Kara, Lizzy, greedy grandparents (maternal) and the boy to men relationships. The details were well noted and the interactions were very vivid in this wonderful novel.

Amazing novel and a very moving story is all I can truly say about "Covenant Child." This was definitely a wonderful photo of God's love for us. If you are in for a excellent read...this read is for you.

That was this book for me.

This is the story of twin girls who after their father dies goes to live with the maternal grandparents. What these girls have to go through is heart breaking. Knowing
