This book is not good. No way, shape or form. I thought the description sounded great. The story line and idea had true potential.The reviews given were wonderful. I thought I was walking on pretty good ground. Ugh. It started off ok. And when I say that, i mean OK in the purest form. The characters, the narrator ( which cuts me deeply because I am a huge fan of Kirsten Potter as D. D. Warren) geez, the story.. was drawn out, boring, unbelievable and an all around frustrating..'OH COME ON!'... coming out more than once. I actually thought I had bought the abridged version because there was so much that didn't come together. No matter what review you read, don't fall for it, don't buy it, like I did, because of the narrator ( I'm still trying to pull the knife out of my chest on that one..oh Kirsten.. what did you do!) and definately don't buy it because you think the description sounds interesting. It's not. I'm trying to save you here. Money as well as & 7 hrs and 2 minutes ( those 2 minutes..ugh).
I am a glass artist and while I create, I listen to books. each creation has memory of one listened to. I love Jesus and my family.
This was a wonderful book of enduring love, promises kept even when seems impossible, redemption, restoration and the pursuing, faithful love of God.....Must read!
I didn't read the print version. This was an amazing book!!
There were so many buy probably when the father died.
No, but she is a very good reader!
I started reading eight years ago. I like medical, legal, and historical fiction. Biographies are sometimes interesting too.
I listened to this book on a road trip and I was so entranced by the story and the reader that I missed two turn=offs on the highway. I was on the edge of my seat uring most of my trip and I found myself becoming emotionally involved with all of the characters, including wishing that the "Nasty characters" would get what they deserved. I highly recommend this book.
I just did not think this book was up to par with the rest of Terri Blackstock's books.
I sent a kindle book of Covenant Child to a friend, before I read it and after reading, I was sorry I'de sent it,
