Covenant Child by Terri Blackstock

I saw this book when i was in college, but didn't read it then. Boy was I missing an amazing book! This is a reprint of the original published in 2002
Kara and Lizzie were born heiresses to a huge fortune. But their mother died when they were infants, their father and paternal grandparents died when they were three, and their stepmother lost a custody battle because their adoption was in process, but not final. Kara and Lizzie are sent to live with relatives who only tolerate the children to get a piece of their fortune, while their step-mother, Amanda, is not allowed to have contact with them. Kara and Lizzie grow up feeling like they are worthless and seeking anything to make them feel special. After being fed lies all their life, they are finally told the truth on their 18th birthday. Will the allow the truth to change their lives?
Christians and nonChristians will enjoy reading this book. It gives a clear picture of what God did for us, but is also a moving story. This is quite easy a new favorite book. I give this book 5 stars.
I received this book from Booksneeze for the purpose of my review.
