Item description for Covenant Child (Repack) (Women Of Faith Fiction) ( by Terri Blackstock & Harry H. Harrison, JR....
Overview The press called them "Billion Dollar Babies," heirs to one of the largest fortunes in the country. But upon the deaths of their father and grandparents, the court system places them with their cruel maternal grandparents who squander the children's inheritance in gambling casinos. Kara and Lizzie grow up believing they are worthless until they learn the truth.
Beautiful, three-year-old twins Kara and Lizzie Holbrooke live a charmed life with their widowed but doting father, Jack. When Jack finds love and marries again, it seems all their lives will finally be "happy ever after." That new life shatters when Jack and his wealthy parents are killed in a plane crash. Jack's new wife, Amanda, inherits the family's estate but fails to gain custody of the twins.
Devastated but bound by her covenant to care for the girls, Amanda manages the estate, hopeful she'll be able to return it to Kara and Lizzie one day. Meanwhile, the twins grow up in an abysmal home environment with distant family members and become hard-drinking, shoplifting, promiscuous teenagers.
After years of trying to reach them, Amanda is finally able to offer them love, comfort, wealth--the life they have always wanted. But when all you've known is deprivation, how can you believe a gift of grace? When you've been lied to for so long, how can you ever know the truth?
Intensely involving, emotionally charged, and infused with hope, "Covenant Child" is an inspiring story that challenges us to embrace the life God holds out to us.

More About Terri Blackstock & Harry H. Harrison, JR.
Terri Blackstock is a New York Times best-seller, with over six million copies sold worldwide. She is the winner of two Carol Awards, a Christian Retailers Choice Award, and a Romantic Times Book Reviews Career Achievement Award, among others. She has had over twenty-five years of success as a novelist. Terri spent the first twelve years of her life traveling in an Air Force family. She lived in nine states and attended the first four years of school in The Netherlands. Because she was a perpetual “new kid,” her imagination became her closest friend. That, she believes, was the biggest factor in her becoming a novelist. She sold her first novel at the age of twenty-five, and has had a successful career ever since.
Recent books include her acclaimed Intervention Series (Intervention, Vicious Cycle, and Downfall). Other recent favorites include Shadow in Serenity, Predator and Double Minds, and the Restoration Series, the Newpointe 911 Series, the Cape Refuge Series, and the SunCoast Chronicles series.
In 1994 Terri was writing romance novels under two pseudonyms for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin, Dell and Silhouette, when a spiritual awakening prompted her to switch gears. At the time, she was reading more suspense than romance, and felt drawn to write thrillers about ordinary people in grave danger. Her newly awakened faith wove its way into the tapestry of her suspense novels, offering hope instead of despair. Her goal is to entertain with page-turning plots, while challenging her readers to think and grow. She hopes to remind them that they’re not alone, and that their trials have a purpose.
Terri has appeared on national television programs such as “The 700 Club” and “Home Life,” and has been a guest on numerous radio programs across the country. The story of her personal journey appears in books such as Touched By the Savior by Mike Yorkey, True Stories of Answered Prayer by Mike Nappa, Faces of Faith by John Hanna, and I Saw Him In Your Eyes by Ace Collins.
Terri Blackstock currently resides in the state of Mississippi. Terri Blackstock was born in 1957.

Reviews - What do customers think about Covenant Child (Repack) (Women Of Faith Fiction) (?
Heart felt Nov 12, 2007
Covenant Child (Women of Faith Fiction #4) Great book, modern story similar to the one of the Bibles Prodigal son. Great for an easy read, will touch your heart. This story touched my heart and made me think of all the times i was like either one of these girls going through tough times while their inheritance was at their finger tips.
A Touching Read Aug 12, 2007
I must admit that when I first started this book, I thought it was going to be one of those overly-simplified, pit-pat books that lack any real depth. The read seemed to be too quick, too simple. I was wrong. By the second chapter, I was deeply invested in the outcome, and as I read on, I saw a wonderful picture of God's grace played out before my very eyes. By the final pages of the book, I was in tears. I'm so thankful that I chose Lizzie's path in my own life, that I accepted my inheritance gladly. But I'm also thankful that, like Amanda, God continues to offer his grace and forgiveness, and that the Karas of the world are always welcome home.
Great Book Aug 7, 2007
I loved this book. I couldn't put it down. Normally a very slow reader, I read this book in 3 days.
I absolutely LOVED this book! Jul 19, 2006
I am so excited to have found a new author to read. Terri Blackstock's book the Covenant Child had me from the first page. It is a book about love, death, money, greed, grace, faith, and trust. Amanda's character in the book reminded me of the Lord and the unconditional love He pours out on His children even when we want nothing to do with Him and the happiness we can find in life by studying His Word and following Him. I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a good read---just be prepared to have to read it straight through.
