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.
Excellant book. The story is sad and it reads like reality even though it is fiction.
This is an excellent book, I loved it. I have never found Women of Faith, bk 1, 2, 3 for this series. If anyone knows of the 3 other books, please let me know! Thanks!
Twins Kara and Lizzie know that they are "billion dollar babies" - deprived of their inheritance and forced to live with uncaring relatives in a ramshackle trailer. Amanda, their stepmother, has always been painted as uncaring and a thief of their money..
Amanda shows up one day with gifts and an amazing story and an even more amazing offer. Lizzie believes her wholeheartedly, Kara is suspicious.
Good, compelling story.
This is a very touching, enjoyable read. Terri Blackstock is just an awesome Christian Fiction Writer.
This was a good story. Two children grow up with terrible grandparents while their stepmother is trying to get them back. She loves them her whole life and never gives up. Finally when they turn 18 things change wonderfully for all of them. A little different than Terri Blackstock's books that I have read but a good story nonetheless.
This is a very good book. It shows you how much Christ loves us. A really touching story.
I don't know if I've ever read Blackstock before, but I will be keeping an eye out for more of her books! Helped me to see the blessed Christian heritage I've been graced with. A touching fiction, yet very easily true!
I have not been disappointed by a Blackstock book yet. Makes you think. It made me realize how fortunate I am.
Couldn't put this book down! This was my first book by this author, and I can't wait to read more of her books.
Great book that is a metaphor for how Christ loves us. Blackstock is a good author and you will enjoy this book as much as her others, although it's not her usual suspenseful type (for me anyway).
A real tear jerker, but really a great story.
Another great read from Terri Blackstock.
What a great story! A sequel would be nice.
