for redemption and restoration was the thread that kept me reading when the content became overwhelming This was an okay story about a prodigal type child.The narrator of the audio version, Kirsten Potter, did a fantastic job I d love to listen toaudio books read by her.Content includes spoilers gambling and teen gambling tobacco stealing shoplifting teen drinking and other alcohol use child abuse fake IDs pre marital sex and teen pregnancy abortion school drop outs insinuations tattoos physical abuseI ll try another book by this author, but I ll be wary going in Normally, I don t readby an author after all of the content issues found in this one, but I ve heard Ms Blackstock is dynamite at suspense writing I ll try one to see if I agree.I was not compensated for my honest review 2.5

Amanda didn t win custody, the girls went to live with their grandparents where they were beaten and thrown in closets They lived in a filthy trailer and they tell the girls that Amanda was the one that killed their parents so she could get all their money Very good book Definitely a keeper In this modern spin on the parable of the prodigal son, Blackstock introduces readers to Lizzie and Kara, twin girls who are heiresses to a large fortune When their father dies, the girls are ripped from the arms of Amanda, the stepmom who loves them as her own, and given to their grandparents, who care nothing for the girls Will Amanda be able to get her girls back, or will they live without ever knowing their true worth Told from Kara s point of view, this novel beautifully shares the story In this modern spin on the parable of the prodigal son, Blackstock introduces readers to Lizzie and Kara, twin girls who are heiresses to a large fortune When their father dies, the girls are ripped from the arms of Amanda, the stepmom who loves them as her own, and given to their grandparents, who care nothing for the girls Will Amanda be able to get her girls back, or will they live without ever knowing their true worth Told from Kara s point of view, this novel beautifully shares the story of unending love the love of a mother who never gives up just like the heavenly Father never gives up on His children Without being preachy, the novel reminds readers of God s open arms waiting to embrace the ones who walked away from the fortune He has for them The book starts when the girls are three and continues past their 18th birthdays, but the plot doesn t feel choppy or rushed The characters are authentic, and I felt such sympathy for the girls and rooted for them to overcome the odds I also loved that this book was about the love of a parent, not a romantic love So many Christian fiction books focus on the love between a man and woman, but the love of a parent is so important too and it s nice to see that relationship explored in fiction.Overall, this a great book Fans of Christian fiction will enjoy this book about unwavering love, but Terri Blackstock fans should be warned that this is not one of her suspense books.just as good though.I received this book in exchange for my review My thoughts are my own From the way this novel was written, to the characters filling to the pages, to the story that grabbed my heart, Covenant Child is a novel to be cherished and shared I can t honestly say I enjoyed this story as a means of pure entertainment The story is exceptional, don t get me wrong, but because of the strong subject matter, it quickly becomes a story that I wanted to see redeemed The main character of Kara is a bitter young woman and if the story weren t written from her perspective, From the way this novel was written, to the characters filling to the pages, to the story that grabbed my heart, Covenant Child is a novel to be cherished and shared I can t honestly say I enjoyed this story as a means of pure entertainment The story is exceptional, don t get me wrong, but because of the strong subject matter, it quickly becomes a story that I wanted to see redeemed The main character of Kara is a bitter young woman and if the story weren t written from her perspective, as one who stands back and looks back on her life, I think I would have become fatigued with her But to see the struggles of Kara and Lizzie and not have your heart wrenched is an impossibility The story is gripping from one chapter to the next moving on a swift emotional roller coaster My heart was jerkedthan one time I loved that the story was first person, it truly came alive Though I would have loved to experience the story from Amanda s point of view I believe this is a rerelease from a previous edition, but the story is timeless A stirring story from a masterful story teller and a wonderful allegory for God s unending grace and love This review is my honest opinion My thanks to the publisher for my copy to review Compellingly readable, Covenant Child is a contemporary inspirational built solidly upon Biblical truths A story that touches the heart, mind, and soul The overall story and situational circumstances are essentially realistic and heartfelt Some of the finer details such as legal issues, police procedures, and overdrawn characterizations not so much Creative liberties taken for the end to fit the means are plainly evident On one hand, I was totally engrossed in the story I truly connect Compellingly readable, Covenant Child is a contemporary

engrossed in the story I truly connected with the twins On the other, the lack of realism with police legal procedures and the fast lane story set up somewhat irked me Especially as the book deals with some heavy hitting topics gambling addiction, child neglect, juvenile delinquency, teen pregnancy, abortion Then again, it is a blend of true to life fiction and a inspirational parable THREE
