Covenant Child

Amanda's heart broke as she watched them drive her beloved twins away.  She resolved to hope and to fight for them to her last breath.

This is a story of promises kept.


Kara and Lizzie are heiresses to one of the largest fortunes in the country.  But when their father dies suddenly, the toddlers are taken from the arms of Amanda, their loving stepmother, and given to relatives who only want the children's fortune for themselves.
Kara and Lizzie grow up questioning their worth, until the day when they learn the truth. 





Terri hasn't always written Christian fiction.  According to the website A Thousand Little Things, "just over a decade ago she was an award-winning secular novelist writing for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin, and Silhouette."  She shares about her transition into Christian fiction writing in her testimony on her website, which can be found HERE.  


You can connect with Terri on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.  Her author website can be found at www.terriblackstock.com.  




Covenant Child is one of the most beautiful stories I've read in a long time.  The story contained within the pages of this book is the clearest picture of the gospel I've ever found in a work of fiction.  Really it is a modern day parable of God's covenant of grace - to redeem a people for Himself and His promises of an inheritance that will neither spoil or fade.  


The book was originally published in 2002, but was re-introduced recently with the new cover, a new chapter, author interview and reading group guide.  This book could really be used and incorporated into a bible study on God's covenant of salvation.  I wouldn't be able to say that about many books, but the message is so clear and biblical in this one, I can solidly recommend it for use in that way.


Thank you Thomas Nelson Publishers for sending me a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review as part of the BookSneeze program for bloggers.


Happy Reading,
Jennifer

It sounds really wonderful! I love Francine Rivers books and a few of her's are very closely related to scripture. Thanks for the review!
