Book Review - Covenant Child

Covenant Child by Terri Blackstock

First of all, I’m a huge, huge Terri Blackstock fan. I have never read a bad book by her and this one is no exception.

The book is about twin girls, Kara and Lizzie, who are part of a very loving family. Their mother has died when they are young, but their father, Jack, is a loving, Christian man who loves them very much. When he meets Amanda at church, he knows that he has found someone that he can share his life with again. Amanda loves Kara and Lizzie like they are her own and they start the process for her to adopt the tow girls.  Jack’s father is a billionaire; however, Jack has told his father that he doesn’t want the money to be left to him but for his father to give it to charity. 

The complication comes when Jack, a pilot, is taking his father and mother to a family wedding and the plane goes down, taking all three lives with it. Suddenly, Amanda finds herself an heiress to a fortune she doesn’t even want but Kara and Lizzie’s mother’s parents do. When the girl’s grandparents find out about the death of Jack and the fortune left for their granddaughters, they decide to go for custody of the children for the money. Unfortunately, the judge awards them to the grandparents.
Kara and Lizzie are only three years old and are suddenly thrust into an unloving, unclean environment. They are told lies about Amanda and don’t remember her or their father, so they believe the lies. The grandparents squander the millions meant for the girls on gambling and drink. Not one penny goes for caring for Kara or Lizzie. Amanda never stops loving the girls and watches over them from afar their entire childhood. 

The story is so wonderful and encompasses the prodigal son and the fact that the Lord has so much for us if we will only accept it. I read this book in less than 24 hours because it was so good I just couldn’t put it down. 

I highly recommend this book. It’s uplifting and the story is so good. You’ll come away caring about each and every character (well, except for the grandparents – lol). The ending is wonderful …the whole book is just so well written you won’t be disappointed.
