Covenant Child by Terri Blackstock
Kara and Lizzie should have had it all but life won't give them a break. As newborns, their mother died leaving their father to raise them alone. Just when he had found love with Amanda and was newly married, he died in a plane crash. These preschool girls should have been raised by their step-mother (as she had promised their dad) in a life of luxury but instead are whisked away by unloving grandparents who squander away their money and leave the girls to fend for themselves. Amanda won't give up on the girls despite not being permitted contact with them. You'll have to read for yourselves to learn more about the twins' lives and what happens to them because Amanda never gives up on her promise to their dad.
WOW! This is one of those stories that keeps you from wanting to put the book (or Nook) down and walk away. It's a captivating story of the promise of one woman to her husband, it's a story of hurts and healing, it's the story of a prodigal. It's a story that most anyone will want to read because of its message that God is always there waiting for us; He won't force himself upon us but is waiting for us to come home to our inheritance.
