About the Book
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.

Darren just wanted to serve the Lord, he decided to do that by joining the Military. He gets send to Iraq soon after joining. He found it a lot harder than he thought would be. War is a hard that to deal with and it especially would be if you are actually there in the mist of it.
Heather is his wife, she is trying to take care of things at home while Darren is away. With children to care for and not hearing from her husband or very short calls starts to take a toll on her. I really admired Heather and how strong she was and so supportive.
The book was so inspiring, I definitely recommend the book. This is my first book by Travis Thrasher and I look forward to reading more of his books.
I received an complementary copy of the book from the publisher through Celebrate Lit. I was not required to write an positive review. This is my own opinion.
We are excited to announce that this book is going to be a major motion picture!

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.
