"Intervention" by Terri Blackstock


Intervention is A Real Page Turner!
This is a fiction story about a mother who tries to get help for her daughter, Emily, who is on drugs by having an intervention.  The person who is going to help the daughter gets killed while escorting Emily on the way to the rehab center and then the daughter is missing.  The last 100 pages of this book are really good.  That’s when the action starts

(Gerard's Review 2/19/10)  (5 stars)

Intervention by Terri Blackstock is a book about a single mother’s love for her children and the struggle to help her daughter, Emily, get off drugs.  What begins as an intervention quickly turns into a nightmare involving murder and Emily’s fight for survival.  I found this book to be interesting, exciting and captivating.  The author wrote from first-hand experience with her own daughter who had a drug problem.  This is Christian fiction that shows the power of prayer and how God intervenes in our lives.  The ending was predictable as with most Christian fiction, but not the journey getting there.  I liked this book and think any parent would find it interesting and could relate to the mother.
