Paula Wiseman did it Again!!!

This is book #3 in the Covenant of Trust series and I love it. This one tugged on my heart like I was there with each character. What I love the most is how Paula allowed us to see how God was answering prayers on both sides...the person praying and how things looked from their perspective and the person being prayed for and how it looked from their perspective. We all have been on both side of the praying and being prayed for and it blessed me to see how God is movi

The Molinsky's are a family that you can't help but feel an instant like and kinship to. They have dealt with many emotional issues in the first two books and this books is not different in that regard.

The oldest son is tragically murdered in the first chapter of the book. This opens the door for adversity, exploration of faith, God's hand, repentance, unconditional love, and negative thoughts and emotions.

Paula Wiseman does a wonderful job at descriptive and empathetic writing. As a reader, I u

This is an awesome series, very well written, very thought provoking about the power of Love, the power of God and the power of Forgiveness. I highly recommend this series.

Loved this series, encouraging for marriages facing challenges and turning to God for reconciliation. Book three deals with the death of a son, a mother's grief and her loss of faith in God.

The third instalment of the Covenant of Trust series is set about thirteen years after Indemnity. It begins with the tragic event of the fatal shooting of Brad Molinsky. In Paula Wiseman's skilful fashion the story unfolds as each family member deals (or doesn't deal) with Brad's death. Other difficult situations arise during the ensuing months: some as a direct consequence of people's actions and reactions in grief, and others unrelated to their grief.

Once again the Molinskys and their wider fa

(Again, meant to review this way before, but anyway)
Book Three in the Covenant of Trust series definitely does not disappoint. Emotionally engaging, riveting, and gripping--it's the perfect follow-up. Definitely very raw, possibly even more so than the first two. And the faith elements are neither cheesy nor irrelevant. Wiseman has created the perfect story and the perfect follow-up to Contingency and Indemnity.

I enjoyed the other books more. This one had some good elements. However the huge chunks of bible quotes became wearing. The previous books seemed more about how people reached conclusions through spirital guidance, this was just came over as preaching and judgmental

also, the title didn't make sense to me. what is the precedent in this story? Lol.

**SPOILER ALERT: I will give this book 3 stars. Didn't enjoy it as much as the first 2 books in the series but it was good nonetheless. I feel that it could have been shortened and have had the same effect with the whole "my child has run away" storyline. A bit too wordy for me at times and a little redundant in places. Overall, a good ending to a great series by Ms. Wiseman.

Great resolution to this series. The author showed, through these books, how God can change situations for the best. This was a great ending. It is great to be able to read accurate Christian novels that keep you wanting to read more. Great job Mrs Paula Wiseman.
