About the Book

Indivisible-200x300

Book: Indivisible

Author: Travis Thrasher

Genre: General fiction, drama

Release Date: October 23, 2018

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.

MY THOUGHTS:

As a military wife whose husband was serving at the time of the attacks on 9/11 that led to war on terror, I knew I wanted to read this book.  It definitely did not disappoint.  I could definitely relate to Heather and the struggles she was going on as the one left behind.  Even though my husband never personally deployed, he had a lot of people from his unit deploy with other units.  I find it difficult to imagine what servicemembers serving during that time had to go through.

Living on a military installation for a while provided me with an appreciation for the family living on post.  It provides a ready-made community such as the one Heather experienced.  Fear rears its ugly head any time my husband is gone and a knock comes on the door.

Having served as part of the Family Readiness Groups (FRG) of the units we have been part of, I recognize the important function it serves.  So I was glad to find it included in the book.  I appreciated how at Darren and Heather struggle to adapt to the new normal once Darren actually returns.

Having lived on a military installation, I know the struggles for marriages are real and the portrayal in the book is excellent.  I definitely recommend you check out this book for yourself. I know I definitely plan on watching the movie as well.
