Overview

Interruption: The Gospel According to Crystal Justine by Tracey Michae'l Lewis-Giggetts is the long awaited sequel to 2004's The Gospel According to Sasha Renee. It is the second book in the Gospel trilogy. Each book examines the deeply rooted issues that have plagued three generations of women in one family.

The story is a fascinating journey through the life of Crystal Justine (CJ), a young woman who has, for most of her life, been erroneously compared to her mother, Sasha Renee. Even as she struggles to escape the image and legacy of this enigma of a woman, she finds herself unconsciously acting out her mother's (and grandmother's) past mistakes. Her relationships with men, although few and far between, is tainted by the thing she cannot say; and her faith is weakened by the emotional and spiritual blows she endures. This dynamic story of deliverance keeps readers, page by page, on the edge of their proverbial seats, wondering if CJ will simply succumb to the darkness that has chased her soul for as long as she could remember or if she will be the one to finally put an end to the generational curse that has tried to consume her family.

    The God in Me

    "Interruption: The Gospel According to Crystal Justine" is the sequel to "The Gospel According to Sasha Renee." Unfortunately, I did not get the chance to read the first book in the "Gospel" trilogy. By no means did I miss anything too critical from reading the first book.

    Crystal Justine 'aka' CJ is haunted by not knowing her mother Sasha. CJ's mother passed away shortly after giving birth to CJ. It irritates CJ that everyone in her family or friends of the family are always comparing her to her deceased mother. She feels somewhat responsible for her mother's death and longs to know more about the woman that gave birth to her. Underlying hurt prevents her from being able to open up or fully trust anyone. All of her relationships with men seem to fail. After being hurt or rejected in some form, she feels in a sense lost. When she was younger she used to believe God would always be there for her since she grew up in the church, but somewhere along the line she felt as though God had let her down as well. Will she be able to get her spirit right and find the God in herself before it is too late? Will she be able to recognize love when it comes her way? Why did CJ lose her trust in God?

    "Interruption: The Gospel According to Crystal Justine" was a pretty good read. It tells the story of a woman who has been hurt, has trust issues and refuses to let anyone get to close to her. It shows how after being hurt, how much prayer really does work and how after giving God all your hurt and pain how things can change for the better. The story does kind of remind me of a memoir of sorts; it chronicles a young woman into adulthood. After reading this novel I would like to read Ms. Lewis' debut novel to find out more about this spiritual attack on these three generations of women in the "Gospel" trilogy.

    Crystal Justine what a powerful, young woman. She is suffering from a generational curse that previous women in her family have endured and suffered from as well. Crystal loses her mother when she is young and this pain is transform through other encounters in her life that left her in a detrimental status. Does she overcome this generational stance, she does. It is amazing to be plague with the feelings of what if this happens to me? Or I don't want to be like this. Being compared to someone you have never known and have only heard of the negativity is hard when someone is your mother. The feelings of not being good enough is seemingly present in Crystal life.
