Book Review: Indivisible

I've enjoyed Kristen Heitzmann's books for a long time as each one of her stand-alone novels is distinctly different and Heitzmann doesn't seem to write with a predictable formula.   Indivisible was a wonderful read.

A melange of characters in a small Rocky Mountain town learn what it is to be together, and divided as they face facets of their past that make them the people they are today.  Heitzmann does a wonderful job of illuminating the pasts of her characters, pulling the threads of their pasts slowly into the light.  The revelations are similar to what you would experience in developing a new friendship.  One thread leads to and twists with another until an intricate network of emotions, experiences emerge.

All the while, gruesome happenings keep Sherriff Jonah Westfall busy with investigations. Tia Manning is working through pains from the past as well as finding her footing for the future.  Piper has arrived in the small town to escape her family and finds friendship, acceptance and camaraderie in the people of this small town.  Liz is working hard to bring peace and wholeness to her life, but it is not an easy task.

When the threads of emotions and pasts are combined with the plot of current activities, a great tapestry of fiction is woven and is an enthralling read.

I received a complementary copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.  The opinions and thoughts of this are my own and are not influenced in any way.
