Wow! Great allegory with a captivating story.

My wife talked me into listening to this book. She is a huge Terri Blackstock fan and I'll admit I listened to it for her but I was very impressed. Basically, this is an allegorical story of twin girls who are separated from their home and forced to live in squalor until they choose to return to their adoptive parent that loves them very much and has virtually unlimited resources to care for them. It was a beautiful way to illustrate how we live in the squalor of this world and choose to believe its lies even though Christ offers us a far better alternative. I thought the plot was believable with few exceptions though I did think it may have stretched a bit at the climax. I also found the main characters to be believable and I was able to identify with them. This is by far my favorite Terri Blackstock book.

Prodigal Parable Times Two

Clearly written as a biblical comparison to the prodigal son, this modern day parable, is a beautiful, yet at times an extreme example of the poor choices that people make . . . AND a steadfast example of the love of a parent for a child, mirroring God's love for us . . . one must listen with these things in mind . . . with the full knowledge that God NEVER fails . . . and that if we hold on to His promises, we will reap his blessings in due time . . . Amanda, and then Kara and Lizzie suffered innumerable losses . . . years of suffering, unfairness and neglect by the ones who should have loved them most . . . and blinded by that suffering, the twins gave in to despair, and believed the lies of the evil one . . . for a time . . . but, listener, hang on until the end . . . because our Lord always has the last word . . .

Beautiful story of redemption

Convenient Child is a beautiful story of redemption! Throughout the story I often found myself thinking about the life God has for me and how I am I so determined to do things my own way. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever taken their life into their own hands, turning away from the glory of Gods plan!

motherless twins

to me, this was an interesting book about choices. it kept me listening.
my only negative: i'm pretty sure that the author is from Mississippi (as am I)...the incorrect pronunciation of Yazoo City and Natchez was like fingernails on a chalk board.

Awesome book!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Covenant Child to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print version. This was an amazing book!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Covenant Child?

There were so many buy probably when the father died.

Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but she is a very good reader!

Covenant Child

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.
