Indivisible: A Novelization By Travis Thrasher, Darren and Heather Turner(The Forward)

I received this book from Celebrate Lit Blogging Program and the author for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions here are my own.


Book Description: 

Inspired by true events, Indivisible is a story of love, service, and finding each other all over again.

Darren and Heather Turner share a passion for serving God, family, and country. When Darren is deployed to Iraq as an army chaplain, Heather vows to serve military families back home as she cares for the couple’s three young children.
Darren knows he’s overseas to support the troops in their suffering as their chaplain. What he doesn’t know is how he will get through his own dark moments. And as communication from Darren dwindles, Heather wonders what is happening in her husband’s heart. Meanwhile, she’s growing weary in the day-to-day life of a military base—each child’s milestone Darren will never see, each month waiting for orders, each late-night knock on the door.
When Darren returns, he is no longer the husband Heather once knew. She is no longer the woman Darren wed. And so it’s at home that the Turners face their biggest battle: to save their marriage.
Based on the screen play by David Evans, Indivisible is a tribute to the beauty of serving our country, the courage of choosing love in the darkness, and the power of a God who never gives up hope.


My Thoughts:  

Indivisible is the latest book by Travis Thrasher and it awesome. This book is passed on the screen play by David Evans that will be a movie. All the books I have had the pleasure of reading by Travis Thrasher have been fantastic and Indivisible is my favorite. It seems to change as I read another book by Travis Thrasher.  Travis Thrasher writes with authority about being a Chaplin especially in the Army, The US Army policies and procedures, life on a military base, the struggles of both the soldier and the families, marriage, and PTSD.  I love the way this book is set up, each chapter is a moment in their lives, points of view switch between Darren and Heather.  I have been married for 23 years and we have gone through some big things but knowing God is here with me had helped in many ways. I admire Darren and Heather's will to keep fighting for their marriage and family, definitely shows how strong love is. I found this book very emotional. I could feel the different emotions from happy, scared, angry, and defeated. I cried through many points of this book, that doesn't make it a bad story at all! I absolutely loved this book, this one story will stay with me for a long time. I cannot wait to read more from Travis Thrasher, I know it will be good. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Fiction and/or Love Stories, you will NOT be disappointed.  Please check out the information below and the great giveaway.

A novelization of the film Indivisible, this is a story of love and marriage and finding each other all over again. When Darren deploys to Iraq during the surge of 2007, he leaves behind his loving and supportive wife, Heather, and their three small children. Their marriage is the envy of the base, both believing strongly in the calling to serve in the military. Darren knows he’s there to support the troops in their darkest moments as their chaplain, but what he doesn’t realize is that he will face his own dark moments, which will have lasting effects on his marriage. Meanwhile, Heather is creating a community among the other wives and families left behind. She rallies support back home, realizing the dangers the men and women serving overseas are facing, but she also begins to notice a change in Darren during their brief conversations. When he returns, he is no longer the man who left-the man Heather married. His greatest fear is letting her down, but instead of opening up to her, he shuts her out. Their marriage was so strong before. But how can they get back to where they were . . . or find a new way forward? Indivisible is a story of sacrifice, marriage, and faith that will leave audiences full of hope even amid their most challenging times.

More about Indivisible

This book is based on a true story, so we’d love for readers and moviegoers to meet the real Darren and Heather Turner: Darren and Heather Turner both grew up in Georgia, and met in 1999 when Darren was working in campus ministry at the University of Georgia. (Darren is still a Bulldog at heart.) Heather was working as a recruiter for an organization that sends English teachers overseas, and Darren had just returned from a year teaching English in Mongolia when they met. Married that same year, they served another six years together in campus ministry and added three children to their family. Through the husband of a friend of Heather’s, Darren learned that opportunities existed for service as a military chaplain. In 2006, Darren completed seminary, was commissioned in the Army, and deployed almost immediately. Their family’s experiences from this timeframe are the basis of the new movie INDIVISIBLE. Darren, who is on active duty, and Heather are passionate about serving military families, marriage counseling, and leading marriage retreats. The Turners currently live in North Carolina with their children Elie, Samuel, and Meribeth. Learn more about the Turners!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfRiNtTXknY
