“This beautifully written novel includes everything a reader could want…The characters truly come to life, and the reader gets to know them as intimately as friends and family. The Divide will keep you up late reading just one more page.”—The Sunday Oklahoman
“Compellingly readable.”—The Times (London)
“[Evans] reminds us that the destruction of all that’s familiar—whether by human hands or by nature—eventually ceases to be the story. What remains is how people survive.”—The Washington Post
“While Evans reveres his backdrop, he ultimately is more interested in getting the reader to go inward than outside. In Evans’s hands, that's a journey worth taking.”—USA Today
“When the frozen body of a young woman is discovered in a remote creek in the Rocky Mountains, the heartrending story of a family in crisis begins to unfold. Reaching back in time, members of the seemingly perfect Cooper family present their version of the events, emotions, and twists of fate that forever altered the benign course of their collective lives. Sure to be a runaway success, this lyrical novel runs the gamut from devastation to despair to deliverance.”—Booklist

The Divide is a place. A guest ranch. A very private guest ranch in Montana. As Nicholas Evans tells you, "It was the place where it all began. Or began to end."
The Cooper family had been coming there for their summer vacation for years. Sarah and Benjamin and their children Abbie and Josh. It was the place where Abbie fell in love with the State of Montana and rather than go to college at Harvard or Wellesly, she opted instead to attend the University of Montana. It was where Abbie found her cowboy, Ty, Josh found Katie Bradstock and also the place where Ben found Eve which started the unraveling of his marriage.
The girl in the ice is Abbie and how she died in that fashion and in that place becomes the focus of the story for the rest of the book. And what a story it is.
Drawn into the environmental activisim of UM, Abbie's exploits take on an escalating series of events until tragedy strikes and she becomes wanted for murder.
Evans is a master at relationships and the many ways in which they can disintegrate. He finds fertile ground in the story of the Cooper family and he handles it beautifully. A good book to read while the fire burns on a winter night.
