To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I sent the whole series (I had already read it) to my relative in prison and she loved it and so did all the inmates that she passed it along to. They all could not wait to get the next book (I sent one at a time).
As I read this series, our country is in the middle of the Carona Virus, Co-Vid 19. Everyone is having hardships-financial, emotional, mental. It reminded me that God is in control, and He will take care of us as the writer of this book showed that He did for the families in these books. Terri Blackstock is an outstanding Christian writer who has written several Christian books and series, and I encourage you to read her books. You will receive a blessing!
5.0 out of 5 starsWhat would life be like if the lights went out...world wide?

Very absorbing series of what life would be like without any power as power went out all over the world. . The characters had to dig deep to find how to feed their family, live off the land, dig for a well to provide water, and learn to live without modern conveniences and technology. Each character is changed as they grapple with almost an impossible situation. Add in murder, missing people, kidnapping, and suspense, and you have a series that’s hard to put down.

The characters feel so real, I had a hard time remembering that I didn’t have to pray for them! LOL The plot is well developed; a real page turner. This is my all time favorite book series and I’m sad it’s over. Thank you Terri Blackstone, for your passion for telling stories with eternal consequences.
Terri, what a great finish. Your insights were spot on and the emotions you evoked in me were unexpected. You didn't take the easy way out, but trudged through to the bittersweet end. I cried like a baby - twice. Kudos to you - fantastic thought provoking series. Loved it.

I have just finished the Restoration series. Books I couldn't put down. They have deepened my faith and opened my heart to God. They also have given me an understanding that I have so much to learn. Extremely well written, suspense and mysteries included, I highly recommend these books to anyone who wants clean, Christian books to read. Terri Blackstock is a writer to excel all!
5.0 out of 5 starsCouldn't read it fast enough! Real page turner.

This is one of the most amazing books I've read in a long time . I think we take our technology for granted and we do not spend enough time with our family . This book shows us that God at one point will wake us up somehow and we are going to know what to do . When the Brannings cried I felt their pain when the Brannings worked hard I felt their sweat when the Brannnings rejoice I felt their joy . I am looking forward to reading another one of Terri Blackstock's books I would recommend this to many of my church members and my friends . This series had made me think that you know God may not answer all of our prayers and the passion that we think they should be answered but he does answer them only later for us to look back and understand that yes it's His will.
I would encourage all to read this book and the other 3 that go with it. It is talking about the grid going down all over the world and people struggle to live and go back to having no power. the reality is that this could actually happen and the question is how would we handle living without any power and have to learn how to live with each other and survive. I 100% recommend this book and the other 3 as well. You will not be able to put them down.
