Our Favorite Reads For February: Intervention

We read a lot of good books this month which made it hard to pick, but here's what we came up with:

Karen's Pick: Intervention by Terri Blackstock is a book about a single mother’s love for her children and the struggle to help her daughter, Emily, get off drugs. What begins as an intervention quickly turns into a nightmare involving murder and Emily’s fight for survival. I found this book to be interesting, exciting and captivating. The author wrote from first-hand experience with her own daughter who had a drug problem. This is Christian fiction that shows the power of prayer and how God intervenes in our lives. I liked this book and think any parent would find it interesting and could relate to the mother.

Gerard read this one too and liked it. Here's what he says about it:
A Real Page Turner! This is a fiction story about a mother who tries to get help for her daughter, Emily, who is on drugs by having an intervention. The person who is going to help the daughter gets killed while escorting Emily on the way to the rehab center and then the daughter is missing. The last 100 pages of this book are really good. That’s when the action starts.

Remarkable Dogs, People Stories
To The Rescue works in so many ways. First, the dogs are so good. They are ones left unloved, handicapped, ready to be killed and neglected. Yet, with special love and affection and training by the people in this book, they have become dogs who visit hospitals, nursing homes, live with blind people or people who cannot hear. The stories are just REMARKABLE! The love that people share talking about these dogs makes you feel good! I really loved this book a lot! If you need a feel good book to read, this is it!
