Publisher's Description

“She’ll never make it through the night”

When Dabney Hedegard was six weeks pregnant, doctors discovered an eight-inch tumor embedded in her chest. She was diagnosed with cancer and opted to postpone treatment until further along in her pregnancy. This marked the beginning of a ten-year battle against cancer, cardiomyopathy, mitral valve prolapse, pulmonary embolism, acute pneumonia, kidney failure, respiratory failure, and heart failure. In each instance, Dabney was given less than a 30 percent chance of surviving, and twice doctors told her husband, “She’ll never make it through the night.” But each time the doctors had given up hope, God intervened, miraculously rescuing Dabney from death’s doorstep. Part medical drama, part account of divine intervention, Dabney’s extraordinary story is a fast-paced, emotional roller-coaster ride that will have you crying one moment and cheering the next. Dabney’s journey is an indisputable testament to the undeniable power of prayer.

    Dabney is diagnosed with cancer when she is 6 weeks pregnant, and this diagnosis is followed by years of medical treatments and near death experiences. I thought the book was very good and a true testament to the power of prayer. Well done.

    This book is an amazing journey of courage, faith, and miracles. If this were a novel, readers would say, "This could never happen in real life!" But this is NOT a novel. It is a true story that reminds us of God's power and ability to perform modern-day miracles. What I love is the way Dabney shares her story with raw honesty and emotion. She does not pretend to have it all together. She shares her doubts and fears as well as her victories. It's a beautiful story about a beautiful young wife and mother. It will give hope to the hopeless.

    When God Intervenes by Dabney Hedegard is an amazing book. This is a story filled with miracles, blessing and how God rescued Dabney from death not once but multiple times. This true story will keep you reading and wondering what is coming next and how is God going to rescue her next. If you don't believe in miracles, you will after you read this book.

    I loved this book and highly recommend it. Dabney believed in God, yet she didn't fully understood His power, grace and love. She was 6 weeks pregnant and discovered an eight inch tumor in her chest. After being diagnosed with cancer she waited for treatment in order to save the life of her baby. This was only the start of her incredible journey through miracle after miracle. Today she has 3 birth and 1 adopted child. Proving again that God is the God of the miraculous and amazing.

    Pick this book up, you won't be disappointed. Your faith will be challenged and you will come to understand God more. He is amazing and He still does work miracles in our lives today.

    It's not very often I use the term "inspiring" or "an inspiration" but "When God Intervenes" and Dabney Hedegard are just that.

    When author Dabney was only six weeks pregnant, doctors found a football-sized tumor in her chest which sparked a ten-year battle with her health that included four near-death experiences.

    If you don't believe in God or are struggling with your faith right now, I dare you to read this book. I promise it will change you. I have never been so touched by a book as I have this one, and I finished it praising God and with tears in my eyes.

    The miraculous events and the faithfulness of God in keeping His promises to Dabney's family not only encouraged me and stretched my own faith, but left me in awe. Her entire story is a testament to God's love and power, and I couldn't more highly recommend it! If you have money enough to buy one book this entire year, use it to buy this one. That's how good it is.

    I picked up "When God Intervenes" thinking I'd read a few chapters and re-visit it later when I had time. I didn't put it down until I finished it at 3:00 the next morning.

    The writing is smooth, the story is riveting, and the overall message is a life-changing one. Dabney's openness and honesty about what she was going through was so refreshing, and I was surprised to even find a little bit of humor when the book dealt with such a serious topic.

    The one and only itty-bitty complaint I have has to do with the format of the book. Because you become so attached to Dabney and her family as you read, I wish they would have had a section in the middle with some photos of them. The book was so personal, I missed seeing who I was reading about. There was only one photo of the author and her family, and it was on the back of the book. And because Dabney's story spans ten years, there was a lot of scene-hopping which was a little hard to follow at times. Although the scene/year changes were always marked, I wish they would have organized it a little more into sections, such as: "Years Before the Cancer," "During the Cancer," and "After the Cancer." Something like that.

    However, those two little things weren't enough to distract me or keep me from enjoying the book as a whole.

    So. I'll summarize: BUY THIS BOOK.

    (I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.)
