All the single ladies . . . who are single mothers

Cradle My Heart Radio welcomes bestselling novelist Terri Blackstock February 22 9 pm ET

What happens when the party lifestyle comes to a crashing halt as pregnancy changes the course of the lives of the women who experience it?

Doing the right thing by choosing life is no guarantee that pain and heartache may not follow.

In her Moonlighters series, novelist Terri Blackstock has created a single mom in the character of Holly Cramer, a party girl who rejected abortion and later had to face the difficulties of single motherhood. In Blackstock’s latest, Twisted Innocence, Holly deals with the added challenge of dodging the dangerous man who fathered her child.

While the story is fiction, it brings to light many of the issues women struggle with while navigating the rough waters of facing the consequences of our past choices and living life “out of order.”

Many women who have chosen life when facing single motherhood have shared with me that, while abortion was out of the question, the choice they made also brought sorrow, shame and isolation. Terri’s treatment of this dynamic will open your eyes to the bravery and determination it takes to do the right thing in the worst of circumstances.

From Terri’s bio:

Terri Blackstock is a New York Times best-selling author of titles such as Intervention, Vicious Cycle and Downfall. In her 25-year career as a novelist, she has sold six million copies worldwide. She is the winner of three Carol Awards, a Christian Retailers Choice Award and a Romantic Times Book Reviews Career Achievement Award, among others.

In 1994, Blackstock was writing secular romance novels under two pseudonyms when a spiritual awakening prompted her to switch gears. Her newly awakened faith wove its way into the tapestry of her popular 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 they’re not alone, and their trials have a purpose. She has told her personal testimony on a number of national television programs, including “The 700 Club”and “Home Life,” as well as numerous radio programs across the country. Blackstock has been married to her husband, Ken, for 23 years.
