This was such a wonderful book, I doubt I could put in words what really needs to be said. First, this story could be right out of today's headlines. Book description and other reviewers pretty much cover what the book is about. Second, written in first person, this is Kara's story. I don't really care for first person accounts, but this one was great, and it needed to be told this way. Book is not preachy at all, though there is limited scriptures used. My heart ached for how these young children were treated. I could understand how hard it would be for these 2 sisters to trust in someone they could not remember, especially after all the lies they had been told about their stepmother. Greed is the driving force that tries to destroy two innocent lives, yet love and compassion try so hard to rescue them. Highly recommend.
