Brought with a Price

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.

 What does it feel like to be bought? How does one feel exactly when all along you were worth something and someone paid the amount in full by sacrificing his life to pay for yours? That was my feeling when I read this book. I realize that the Lord Jesus Christ paid his own life to save my worthless soul. But my worthless soul means more to Him than His own life.

It's something to think about this weekend as we look forward to the rest of the summer.

I got this free book from: Booksneeze
