While reading TRACEY MICHAE'L LEWIS' novel, INTERRUPTION: The Gospel According to CRYSTAL JUSTINE, I thought about Crystal's emotions about her mother. Dealing with grief can never be denied or pushed down into the subconscious with hope that it will just disappear. Grief seems to have a way of piling up and lifting itself from one person to the next person. It's like a heavy fog in a home where no one can breathe. Unfortunately, this is the legacy that Crystal Justine must live with everyday.
The ghost of her mother isn't her only struggle. Other horrible circumstances happen in Crystal's life. Her father's best friend is the cause of a major catastrophe in Crystal's life. Although Crystal goes through so much she clings to God. She never let's go or gives up. I found it surprising that such a young lady could keep going on each day while finding her own answers. Thankfully, one day she meets an older lady. She thinks of the older lady as an angel sent by God. She arrives just in the nick of time with the right answers needed by Crystal Justine. In the end Sasha addresses evil spirits who have always haunted her. Crystal Justine proves to be as hard as crystal. Crystal is defined in this way.
"To every demon in hell who has pursued me, my mother, my grandmother and all of the women before us, you should have took me out when you had the chance because from this day forward, I am...we are...free." rawsistaz
