Thirteen-year-old Beth has witnessed two murders. The murderer yells after her to keep her mouth shut or hell kill her and her family. For days Beth hides in terror, but the family is too excited about the possibility of life returning to normal to pursue why Beth is acting so strangely.
Beths older sister, Deni, has fallen in love with a young neighbor, Mark Green, who asks Doug and Kay for permission to propose. Steeped in joyful anticipation, they allow Beth to put them off.
On the day when Mark intends to propose, Denis former fiancé, Craig Martin, appears, intent on winning her back. He has been sent by Washington to get the electricity in their area back on. Using the promise of getting their neighborhood turned on as one of the first, he persuades the Branning family to let him stay with them.
Meanwhile, the murderer searches for Beth through the use of her necklace that he yanked off during his scuffle with her. And Beths time is running out.
The Restoration Series has been one of award-winning Terri Blackstocks most thought-provoking series, and this is the most thought-provoking of the books. Blackstock takes the reader into the dark and painful times when God seems to say no to our most fervent prayers. Her characters seek, pray, and knock on Gods door for their hearts desires. This story takes you on a powerful emotional roller coaster, complete with tears and cheers. Fans of the series cannot bear to miss Blackstocks Restoration Series finale. New readers should pick up the earlier books first for maximum impact. -- Debbie Wilson, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
A popular suspense author, Blackstock combines fast pacing with relationship threads in the fourth series entry (after True Light). This title should find its way onto public library shelves.

I think that ruins it for new readers. I read all the books in this series and only took one day to read each of them. I couldn't put them down. Although I usually stick to suspense and mystery, these books are as good as any. Start with book 1 and read them all. You will not be sorry. I have read every book she has written and they are all wonderful. Never dull and always something going on but makes readers realize that God is always there and if we have him, we can come through anything.
