Tia Manning is haunted by her own desires. Spending the past nine years atoning for a choice that destroyed her family has made little impression on the guilt and disgust that overwhelms her. Fear and self loathing permeate her soul yet the beauty of her handmade candles hint at what might have been.
Kristen Heitzmann ups
the ante in her latest psychological thriller, Indivisible,
delving deeper into the inner torment of the emotionally and physically
damaged hearts of her multifaceted characters. Skillfully weaving multiple
perspectives in this story, Kristen reveals the long lasting impact of
a shattered childhood, the debilitating nature of unrelenting guilt, the
daily torment of mental illness and the crippling effect of isolation.
The psychological imprint of these experiences is epitomised in one of
her intriguing characters in an authentic manner. Jonah, Tia, Piper, Liz
and Miles entranced me with their internal battles and the impact of their
choices. I was invested in the outcome for each of them. While the perpetrator
stands out earlier than I anticipated, it does not detract from the story
and provides an opportunity to ponder motivation and compulsion. The latent
attraction just simmers and shows Kristen is adept at both psychological
and romantic tension. The faith element is subtle yet meaningful and I
can't wait to read more of her books in this genre.
