Terri Blackstock gets better with each book. Intervention is an amazing story. I highly recomend it to anyone but particularly those who are struggling with the addiction of a loved one.
Way to go Terri!

I loved Terri's work since her Restoration series. Intervention did not let me down! I couldnt put it down, not even from my hospital bed!!! Started it on my Nook and finished it on my cell phone. Now THAT's devotion! Terri has a way of making the reader feel like they are in the middle of the action.

Edge of your seat suspense yet relying on prayer and The Lord for their Strength in the most difficult of times. A mother who does not give up on her daughter and her son right there with her. This is an amazing story and shows the dedication of certain people who really do love what they do. You will be hooked almost from the beginning as I was with my curst book from her. Spellbinding, heart wrenching, loving. i recommend it to all teen to grandparents. I love Terri Blackstock novels for she keeps three steps ahead of you and you never know what is on the next page turn. I read this book in an evening because I needed to know what was at the end even though I knew there were two more books to follow which knowing the author I had also treated myself and purchased them all together. I was not going to have to wait to see what happens next. Thank The Lord for eReaders. Terri is an amazing author. If you liked this book read the other two that go with this series as well as try her other books. I promise you, you will never be dis appointed. Keep them coming Terri BlackstockWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Very well written by someone who obviously understands the world in which the story takes place.
The affect drugs have on a family and how they might combat the addiction is shown in heartbreaking detail. I have known families who have sent their children to an intervention rehabilitation center and feel for the pain and struggle they face in doing so.
The murder mystery adds a good dose of thrilling suspense.

This is the first book in the Intervention series and Teri Blackstock has done it again! If you have a child or someone you love addicted to drugs these two books will be interesting reads.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is one of the most driving books you will ever pick up from the very beginning. The outstanding writing of this book will make you feel like your actually part of the story riding along with the characters. Although this is fiction, it could very well be actual in nature each and everyday...You don't have to have drug abuse problems in your family to totally enjoy this book..This book could very well keep many children for ever using drugs if read. A must read and one you can't read fast enough...Enjoy you will not be disappointed.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book really tells the tale of how others are affected by the actions of an addictive person within the family. I recommend this book to anyone that knows someone who is addicted to a drug or a teenager who you may want to warn about the dangers of attempting to even try a drug due to peer pressure.Was this review helpful?

This story of an out-of-touch mother whose determination is beyond her own good is one that encouraged thoughts of pity and negative emotion from the reader. Before I detail my feelings, I must admit that I am glad that the faith of the author was tied in. I am also glad that this book dealt with many issues of the backslider.
Now to the rest of the book: The Covingtons are a set of overwhelmingly out-of-touch individuals. Whether it was the mom's lack of what many people call common sense, the son's use of ridiculous catch phrases, or the daughter's seemingly non-existence of "street smarts" (even though she had basically lived the life of a street rat), the family will find ways of making you think, "Are people really like this?"
I would have to answer the question in with an emphatic "No!" People can't be both determined to do something and their actions be in the opposite. Also, as Christian characters, why do Barbara and Lance always have to be so mad that they "could hit something." Ridiculous.
In order to find a message, one must read past the insanity and focus on the created Divine Intervention in each character's life (except, I don't believe that Lance's was as powerful as the others). Having said that, I believe that God has provided us with enough counsel and wisdom that during such a trial we would not be so insane to test that same God by putting ourselves in the situations (yes, folks, plural) that Barbara put herself in.
Spare yourself the insanity. It doesn't get any better as you read on.

I Also Recommend:
Intervention by Terri Blackstock will speak to your soul. The mother, Barbara Covington, reminded me of our Heavenly Father who never gives up on us. The love of the mother for her daughter was never extinguished even though it appeared her daughter would never come around.
How many parents would mortgage their home to pay for treatment of an unwilling child? That's what Barbara Covington did and it paid off though not in the way she expected.
I would recommend this book to anyone. I believe it's one of Terri's best one to date.
