“Evans demonstrates the same intricacy of plot and depth of characterization that defined his international best-seller The Horse Whisperer…[a] heartrending story of a family in crisis.”—Booklist
For many anguished months Ben and Sarah Cooper's daughter has been on the run from the FBI, wanted for murder and acts of eco-terrorism. But when Abbie's body is found embedded in the ice of a remote mountain creek, the family's devastation deepens into mystery. How did she die? And what was the trail of events that led this golden child of a loving family so tragically astray?
In a journey of discovery and redemption that takes us from the streets of New York to the daunting grandeur of the West, The Divide tells the story of a family fractured by betrayal. It explores the pain we inflict on those we love the most and charts the passions and needs, the dashed hopes and disillusionments, that connect and divide all men and women.

Nicholas Evans is one of my favorite authors. I have read all of his books. The books starts out like a thriller, but then moves into a disintegrating marriage, ecological issues, a daughter who becomes involved with the wrong people, passionate about a cause and blind to the person leading it. The characters were flawed (which I usually like), but spineless, confused, lost, and so guilt ridden. It's not easy to write about characters who do despicable things, and Evans does this well. Somewhere along the way, I realized I had read the entire book to find out what happened in the first chapter. His descriptions of places and settings is flawless. How humans heal after facing a life-altering tragedy is always a subject that fascinates me. Looking forward to his next novel.
The Divide is a story that shows a divide created within a family. It is a great mystery and an emotional roller coaster. I had not read any Nicholas Evans before seeing the movie the Horse Whisperer. After seeing the movie, I read the book and realized that Hollywood had done this author dirty. Mr. Evans writes beautiful descriptions, prose. You will become part of his stories. The Divide captured me from the start. Whether the storyline is out west or in the city, the reader will feel a part of it. There were a lot of twists and turns in The Divide, some of it heart wrenching mixed with little family traditions that will make you smile. The ending was bittersweet. I could not put it down.
Learn why the poor hate the justice system and the rich love it. Explains how a unimportant man can go to a long prison term for rolling a joint and a banker who has cheated the system and depositors of many many millions never serves a day in jail or pays a fine. Very detailed information.
