This book has such a sting of realism! Having lived as an addict before meeting the Lord, I could relate to the thoughts that plague you. The desperation, hopelessness and anger that fuels addictions was clearly painted in this page turner. Yet there was the reality of God's commitment to His people. Through the stark realism of life in the gutter comes the grip of grace that is your only hope.
I've spent many, many hours working with addicts. I have been amazed at how well Terri portrays the struggle in the "Intervention" series. Just finished "Vicious Cycle" and it maintains that sense of realism. And as with all her books, the characters ring true. While the books are certainly not pie in the sky they realistically and powerfully portray hope. Can't wait for the next one - hopefully there will be a next one.
Terri Blackstock is one of my favorite authors. Her novels are intense, I've not been disappointed yet.
This is the story of a girl who gets caught up in the world of drug addiction. Her family isn't supportive and she's basically left to care for herself. The choices she makes are not the best. Her addiction has led her into a world of danger. Terri gives us an insight into addiction. This book will keep you up late reading!
Terri always leads us to God and His mercy. This is a must read!
Ah, yes. Suspense at its finest. Terri Blackstock has brought back Barbara and Lance from Intervention and Lance is front and center this time as he gets into a load of trouble when a meth baby shows up in his backseat and he is arrested for kidnapping. This pulls him and his mother into a dangerous world of drugs and human trafficking as they try to save the baby and clear Lance at the same time.
Terri knows how to keep me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning to the very end and she does not disappoint in Vicious Cycle. I loved it!
