      careers, two sweet and talented daughters. Their eldest daughter, Leah, an exceptional soccer player, is on track for a
 prestigious scholarship. Their youngest, Justine, more responsible than seems possible for her 12 years, just wants her sister's
approval. With Leah nearing the end of high school and Justine a seemingly together kid, the parents are set to enjoy a peaceful
    life...until Leah meets Todd, a high school dropout and former roadie for a rock band.As Leah's parents fight to save their
    daughter from a world of drugs, sex, and wild parties, their divided approach drives their daughter out of their home and a
      wedge into their marriage. Meanwhile, twelve-year-old Justine observes her sister's rebellion from the shadows of their
 fragmented family-leaving her to question whether anyone loves her and if God even knows she exists. Can this family survive
                                    in Leah's wake? What happens when love just isn't enough?

This review is from: In Leah's Wake (Kindle Edition) I downloaded this book for my kindle mainly because the price was so
cheap, and Im glad that I did! I finished the book in about 4 days. once I picked it up, I couldnt put it down! Terri does an
awesome job using foreshadowing in all the right places.. and writes an ending that you will never ee coming! I highly
recommend this to anyone, but I advise any strict parent to consider purchasing this as a gift for anyone under the age of about
16, as there is qite a bit of suggestive material throughout. But over all, this is a FANTASTIC book!

This review is from: In Leah's Wake (Paperback) ***I received a complimentary copy in exchange for a review.I enjoyed this
story for the most part. Leah went through a series of bad decisions that put her in a spot her pride couldn't back track on. The
characters were well developed and it was easy to understand the things they did for the family.I only gave it 3 stars because I
felt like at times the story wandered away from the main plot and some of the story lines were too long and unnecessary.
Overall, though, I enjoyed it.

Great read!, May 23, 2011 By Donna Dowd
  This review is from: In Leah's Wake (Paperback) It's hard to believe this book was the author's debut novel. The characters
and storyline kept you riveted to the book and you didn't want to put it down. Very true to life story that anyone who is raising or
raised teenagers could definitely relate to and see themselves, as parents, in almost the same type of situations. I enjoyed
reading about the family dynamics and how each individual's actions affect everyone in the family. Very good read! Great job
