A twist, a turn, and a source of hope

Indivisible, by Kristen Heitzmann, is an intriguing adventure into the world of severed connections and secrets. Turns and twists on every side add to the thrilling suspense of the plot, weaving in along the way the truth that Christ is the only solution to all of our issues. Make sure you have the time to give to this book before you pick it up – it is a page turning read and you will not want to stop until you have devoured the entire book!

There are some dark parts to this book and it is not overly religious by any standard. And yes, the word 'hell' is in the book twice as a curse word. However, the story is very well-written, interesting, suspenseful, and, it has a good wrap-up at the end.

The characters in this book are realistic, identifiable, and well-developed. Piper, Sarge, Sue Donelly, the supporting characters to Tia and Jonah, were very much a part of the overall story, and you get deep character development with them all. Miles, Liz, and Lucy, the more mysterious characters, you find out more at the very end. My only thoughts against this book are that if you are extremely sensitive to gruesomeness, then either skim those sections like i did, or perhaps this wouldn't be a good read for you. Otherwise, it is intriguing and ultimately does point to Christ as the only solution, in spite of the fact that there are the 2 curse words and non-Christian characters. For anyone who has ever felt hopeless, this book can be a source that points to hope.

This book was provided for review by WaterBrook Multnomah in exchange for an honest review.
