This is a very touching story to read. it is about 2 children who lost their mom at a real early age (so they'd never remember her). Their father remarries and they call her (Amanda) mom, they then lose their dad, and get wrenched away from Amanda to live with their other grandparents (on their moms side), who only wants their money. Amanda is continually trying to get the kids back to her loving arms, but it seems it may never happen. The children's grandparents bad mouth Amanda and so the kids learn to hate a woman they haven't seen (or at least don't remember seeing).
I loved reading this book
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
Amanda’s heart broke as she watched them drive her beloved twins away. She resolved to hope . . . and to fight for them to her last breath.
Kara and Lizzie are heiresses to one of the largest fortunes in the country. But when their father dies suddenly, the toddlers are ripped from the arms of Amanda, their loving stepmother, and given to their maternal grandparents, who only want the children’s fortune for themselves.
While even the stipend their guardians get for supporting them is squandered, the children are left to raise themselves. Kara and Lizzie grow up believing they are worthless . . . until the day when they learn the truth.
