Publisher's Summary

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 chain saws to dig her out. But identification doesn't take as long. Abbie Cooper is wanted for murder and acts of eco-terrorism, and her picture is on law-enforcement computers all across America. But just how did she die? And what was the trail of events that led this joyous, golden child of a loving family so tragically astray? In a journey of discovery and redemption, from the streets of New York to the daunting grandeur of the Rocky Mountains, The Divide delves into the dynamics of a fractured family and their struggle with the pain of lost happiness. Electrifying and heartbreaking, master storyteller Nicholas Evans' new novel delivers an extraordinary tale about the timeless power of nature, and about the yearnings, hopes, and disillusionments that connect, and separate, all men and women.


What the Critics Say

"Evans demonstrates the same intricacy of plot and depth of characterization that defined his international best-seller The Horse Whisperer....Sure to be a runaway success, this lyrical novel runs the gamut from devastation to despair to deliverance." (Booklist)

This was one of those books that I couldn't turn off. The reader was excellent. The story, primarily a love story of sorts, was so compelling that it drew you into the characters and the messes they made of their lives. Nichlas Evans did a fantastic job - can't wait for his next book!

This is the best book this author has written since the Horse Whisperer. You have to keep listening. Each character has the lead at their own time and you laugh and ache with each of them. It is one of those books that you can't book down but at the same time are sad when you reach the end, Very Memorable.
