Item description for The Gifted: A New Edition of Terri Blackstock's Classic Tale by Terri Blackstock...
Overview When an earthquake rocks through a quiet California town, buildings are ruined but lives are saved-radically saved. Bree Harris, Carl Dennis, and Andy Hendrix are rescued and emerge miraculously untouched-but they quickly discover life will never be the same. At the hospital, Bree can "see" visions of people's past wounds; sensing danger, Carl never makes it to the hospital and his "instincts" result in several more rescues; the minute Andy is pulled out he begins quoting scripture in a way that gives hope to everyone he encounters.This intriguing story, from one of today's best-selling Christian fiction authors, has been repackaged for a new generation of readers. The jacketed hardcover format makes this novella the perfect companion to The Listener, Terri Blackstock's other newly repackaged novella from WestBow Press.
Three friends whose lives needed a jolt...An earthquake that struck without warning...A supernatural gifting of mysterious powers...
The Gifted is one of Terri Blackstock's most intriguing novels. A massive natural disaster leads to an even more earth-shaking supernatural transformation in the lives of three friends who have no idea why they've been spared or infused with these distinct gifts.
One thing is certain...the earthquake was just the warm-up for what lies ahead.

More About Terri Blackstock
Terri Blackstock is a New York Times best-seller, with over six million copies sold worldwide. She is the winner of two Carol Awards, a Christian Retailers Choice Award, and a Romantic Times Book Reviews Career Achievement Award, among others. She has had over twenty-five years of success as a novelist. Terri spent the first twelve years of her life traveling in an Air Force family. She lived in nine states and attended the first four years of school in The Netherlands. Because she was a perpetual “new kid,” her imagination became her closest friend. That, she believes, was the biggest factor in her becoming a novelist. She sold her first novel at the age of twenty-five, and has had a successful career ever since.
Recent books include her acclaimed Intervention Series (Intervention, Vicious Cycle, and Downfall). Other recent favorites include Shadow in Serenity, Predator and Double Minds, and the Restoration Series, the Newpointe 911 Series, the Cape Refuge Series, and the SunCoast Chronicles series.
In 1994 Terri was writing romance novels under two pseudonyms for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin, Dell and Silhouette, when a spiritual awakening prompted her to switch gears. At the time, she was reading more suspense than romance, and felt drawn to write thrillers about ordinary people in grave danger. Her newly awakened faith wove its way into the tapestry of her suspense novels, offering hope instead of despair. Her goal is to entertain with page-turning plots, while challenging her readers to think and grow. She hopes to remind them that they’re not alone, and that their trials have a purpose.
Terri has appeared on national television programs such as “The 700 Club” and “Home Life,” and has been a guest on numerous radio programs across the country. The story of her personal journey appears in books such as Touched By the Savior by Mike Yorkey, True Stories of Answered Prayer by Mike Nappa, Faces of Faith by John Hanna, and I Saw Him In Your Eyes by Ace Collins.
Terri Blackstock currently resides in the state of Mississippi. Terri Blackstock was born in 1957.

Fabulous book.... Nov 26, 2007
Terri Blackstock outdid herself on this book. It is short enough to be read in a day or two *or up all night* if you want to have a quick read. The way she weaved this book together shows her gifting!
Three office friends are thrown into the middle of an earthquake. THey awaken to find they have special giftings. These gifts work best when they are together with each other. It is a good book from start to finish!
