Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The title illustrates many facets of division in this compelling book, his best since The Horse Whisperer. In chapter one we are presented with a girlâs body embedded in the ice on a mountainside in Montana and the mystery begins, not with the girlâs identity but with why she came to be there. Picking through the past, watching the characters change over the years and manipulating our emotions with theirs, Evans has produced a powerful, sensitive tale of a family falling apart, of the ideology of youth turning sour and of the pain of love, all centred around eco-terrorism. It is very good indeed.

Comparison: Thomas Eidson, Leif Enger, Pat Conroy.

If you like Nicholas Evans you might also like to read books by Larry McMurty, Rosie Thomas and Andrew Rosenheim.

The Divide by Nicholas Evans

Two backcountry skiers find the body of a young woman embedded in the ice of a remote mountain creek. All through the night police work with arc lights and chainsaws to prise her out. Identifying her doesn't take so long. Abbie Cooper is wanted for murder and her picture is on law enforcement computers all across America. But how did she die? And what was the trail of events that led this golden child of a loving family so tragically astray? From the number one bestselling author of The Horse Whisperer, master storyteller Nicholas Evans, comes this powerful new novel, an epic thriller of the human heart. In a journey of discovery and redemption, from the streets of New York to the daunting grandeur of the Rocky Mountains, it tells the heart-rending tale of a family fractured by divorce. As both parents and children struggle in search of lost happiness, some devastating truths unravel. The Divide is the story of a great love betrayed and of the yearnings and needs, the dashed hopes and disillusionments that connect and separate all men and women.
