When love is forbidden, who can you trust?
Seventeen year old David has been best friends with Jonathan for as long as he can remember, but the day he sees
the pastor’s daughter press a soft kiss to Jonathan’s cheek everything changes. Overcome by jealousy, his explosive
reaction reveals a deeper connection that sends their relationship spiraling down into dangerous territory.
When their clandestine love is discovered, they have nowhere to turn for help. The brutal circumstances of their
parting test David and Jonathan’s covenant to each other in unimaginable ways. Forced to face their fears, it is in
their darkest moments that the two young men discover that the courage, hope, and strength they need to to fight for
their love, has been the foundation of their covenant all along.
Carly from Carly’s Book Reviews has this to say about The Covenant:
5 out of 5 stars
“That many young people are forced to hide their true selves for their own safety is a bitter truth that Phoenix tackles head on. The malevolent reaction to their love is both disturbing and heartbreaking. Jonathan references the depth of emotion found in the Greek concept of agape love when describing his feelings for David. Their love is pure; forged in the fires of prejudice and hate.
The Covenant will strip you bare and then carry you up out of darkness and into the light. It’s one of the most powerfully emotional stories I’ve ever read. Built on a foundation of love, it’s the type of story meant to be read more than once because you’ll discover something new every time. It isn’t for the faint of heart but persevere until to the end and you will walk away with a deeper understanding of compassion, strength and hope.”
