Wow! This was a wild ride. Yet through all of the suspense and crazy plot twists, you could really feel for the suffering mother who was the main character. Terri Blackstock really gets deeply into the mind of an addict’s parent because Terri has experienced this herself. But it’s not one-sided. The child’s point of view is also expressed in this book to help us grasp how a kid with a great Christian upbringing can turn to the wrong friends and drugs. After all is said and done, it makes me want to be a parent who stays in tune with my child as she grows and gets into adolescence. It made an impact on me!
I’ve been a fan of Terri Blackstock since the late 90’s. I haven’t read a book of hers in a long time. I’m so glad I picked this one up. It reminded me why I used to read every single one of her books that I could get my hands on. This was an incredible, gripping story. It’s one of those books that you will find hard to put down. If you love a good suspense story with lots of heart, you’ll really love this book. It tells of the struggle to understand God and why he allows certain things to happen. And it also tells of the loving ways He brings His children back to Him. It’s the tension that most mature Christians live in and could only be told by a mature, Christian author who has experienced it herself.
