  • 4.5 When I read Jolina Petersheim’s The Alliance, I was so impressed at the idea and execution of such a creative storyline and since then I have been eagerly awaiting the conclusion and I was not disappointed.One of the things that impressed me most about this second installment was how realistic Petersheim developed the story. Her story is full of what real people would have struggled with, decisions that would have been made, plans that might not have turned out and the bad that would have [...]

  • One of my most anticipated reads of this year was The Divide. I could hardly stand the wait to find out what would happen to Leora and Moses, but the wait was totally worth it! This story delves further into their world post-disaster, raising a few new questions perhaps, but ultimately answering all of the ones that mattered to this reader. The first scenes begins the story in a rush, and I was hooked just like that. A word of warning – don’t start this book unless you plan on having a good [...]

  • The conclusion to The Alliance Series drew me in from page one and didn't let go. The writing is beautiful and flowed like water in a gentle stream. The story line was captivating and the romance heavenly.Jolina Petersheim delivers a stellar series which begin in The Alliance with an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) in a Mennonite community. While The Alliance is about survival in the initial days following the EMP, The Divide takes survival to the next level beginning six months later. The series is [...]

  • In the award-winning Amish thriller, The Alliance, Jolina Petersheim's mighty pen probed deep into the "what if's" that keep many a survival webstore afloat.In the sequel, The Divide, she digs deeper, striking nerve after raw nerve, both entwining readers to the unforgettable characters while holding up a mirror to show us what we'd be without the mysterious "consisting element" that keeps all our lives from spinning into oblivion. An aeon beyond standard bonnet fiction, The Divide is the story [...]

  • It’s one of my favorite experiences in the world, placing myself in the hands of a masterful storyteller — letting go of the metaphorical wheel and allowing someone else to steer while I rest content, knowing I am in the hands of a most capable guide. This was my experience from the opening lines of Jolina Petersheim’s powerful conclusion to The Alliance series, The Divide.As always, Jolina’s prose is unparalleled in its finesse, so finely drawn it pulled me quickly into the immediacy of [...]

  • Moses doesn’t know if he’s ever going to see this woman who’s captured his heart again. He realizes his attraction to Leora is sweet and protective but fragile; with the EMP and people’s reaction to it have turned the whole world upside-down. He encourages her to go find a safe place with her Old-Order Mennonite family.“You never know how hard something’s going to be until it’s too late to change your mind,” Moses says as he gets ready to fight the good fight. He’s a likable gu [...]

  • This sequel to The Alliance is just as good as the first book. This time, the story is told from three POVs, Sal being a new narrator. At first, I didn't like her so much. We hadn't parted on such good terms at the end of The Alliance. ;) But as the story developed, I grew fond of her character.The Alliance and The Divide are new favorites for me. I loved the journey on which Jolina Petersheim took me with these books. I really like her writing style and, oh those characters! They annoyed me som [...]

  • ***"The Divide," Jolina's conclusion to "The Alliance," is riveting, amazing & page-turning!***Jolina Petersheim's thought-provoking, fictional suspense about a life-altering EMP attack that destroys America's power grid concludes with "The Divide" releasing June 7. The intriguing account of how the attack effects an Amish Mennonite community in northern Montana near Glacier National Park continues at an amazing pace."The Divide" picks up where "The Alliance" left off when an attack in early [...]

  • The stunning sequel to The Alliance is even better than I imagined!For the last six months, Leora Ebersole and Jabil Snyder have moved the Mennonite community from their village up to the mountains in order to escape disaster. Every night, Leora still wonders about the fate of Moses Hughes, who stayed behind to give the community a chance to get away before a gang overtook their village to plunder anything that was left. But the winter has been very harsh and people are beginning to starve. The [...]

  • 4.5 starsA thought-provoking sequel to The Alliance. Both are different from my normal reads of historical fiction, but I am so glad I stepped into this genre of christian fiction. Highly recommend to everyone.

  • Oh my. Gripping conclusion is right! I really didn’t want to put this one down. Jolina Petersheim has crafted a story that hooks into both the emotions and the intellect, because there is no clear-cut path for these characters to tread. When it comes down to a choice between surviving and showing compassion, which do you choose? Does pacifism require you to passively accept whatever is forced upon you? How do you defend yourselves without losing your humanity and respect for life? And when a g [...]

  • In September last year I finished The Alliance, the first of this two-book series.My Review- Loved it. I have been looking forward to finishing a number of books I borrowed so I can finally to dive into The Divide. Worth the wait.At first I was unsure about it. The characters I grew to care about in the first book began suffering such adversity and making painful decisions. Plus too much tension in a book can be hard to read… I have to keep reminding myself these things are not happening to re [...]

  • Dystopian fiction and Mennonite characters come together in this sequel to the Alliance. I didn't read the first book but was able to follow along and pick up the story line fairly well.The world as people have know it has been thrown into utter and complete chaos due to an EMP. Survival is utmost in people's minds. Shelter and food are at barely subsistence levels. The story is told from alternate points of view. Leora, who has a heart for her Mennonite community while still questioning their b [...]

  • From the Militant Recommender Book Review Blogmilitantrecommender/Stand Together : "The Divide" by Jolina Petersheim SPOLIERS!!!So, if you have read Jolina Petersheim's beautifully written story The Alliance, then you know that Leora, Jabil and the rest of the Mennonite community had been trying to survive in the aftermath of an EMP, a disaster that destroys all technology and the dependence our society has on it. When the farm they lived was under attack by armed looters, they are forced to fle [...]

  • The Divide is a story about survival. The good the bad and the very very ugly of the survival after the EMP in the Mennonite Community) (what is an EMP - get the book and read about it) . It answers a lot of questions but it also starts a bunch more of them too. This is about Moses, Jabil and Sal and what GOD has called each of them to save and the book is about the journeys of each to the end where we would see if each would fulfill what GOD had designed for them to fulfill. will they be able t [...]

  • Title: The DivideAuthor: Jolina PetersheimPages: 400Year: 2017Publisher: TyndaleMy rating 4 out of 5 stars.The Divide is the sequel to The Alliance written by the same author. The story is unique in posing the question how would different people handle life if the USA was attacked by an EMP. While the Amish and some Mennonite communities are used to living with the essentials and not dependent on anything electronic, other factions of society are very dependent on these convivences.What happens [...]

  • An eerily compulsive read especially in these unsettled times. This is the sequel to The Alliance, and I do think it's better if you have read that book first. There's just so much that happens before the opening scene in The Divide, and though the author does a great job of covering the important stuff, you'll feel all the emotional nuances in this one more if you've experienced Moses and Leora's journey from the very beginning. And what a journey it is!Chaos reigns as people struggle to eke ou [...]

  • This is the conclusion to the story that began in The Alliance. This was a story that I had to discover it's conclusion. I loved the conclusion. This book has good characters and bad characters. It shows what humanity might be like if a disaster happens that destroys many things that humans have become used to. Read both books and enjoy. These really cause one to think. I loved Leora and Moses. They learn many lessons. I received a copy of this book through Tyndale Blog Network for a fair and ho [...]

  • This is a hard review to write, because I don't know how I'll do justice to Petersheim's gripping story. I reread her previous book, The Alliance, in preparation for The Divide, and after spending two weeks with the old order Mennonite community in these two books, it's hard to step back and be objective about their ('fictional,' I remind myself) lives. This novel centers on the tension between Leora Ebersole and her two suitors, community leader Jabil Snyder and Englischer pilot Moses Hughes. T [...]

  • This is one of those rare times where I really enjoyed the book and where the pros barely overrode the cons.I'll start with the cons in this second installment of The Alliance story. The insertion of Sal's POV seemed more of a storyline crutch than any added value. Sure it helped knowing the "other side" of what was happening, but it could have been approached differently in my opinion. The four/five times that the POV was used compared to the alternating POVs of Moses and Lenora was jarring and [...]

  • I was so ready to jump into this story. The first book, 'The Alliance' crept in and hooked me. I need to find out more. Back with the Old Order Mennonite Community from Mt. Hebron as they are settling into their new camp up the mountain. I'm sad that this is set to be the conclusion of this short series and am wondering how I can finagle the idea that it can, and should, continue. I know luck is most likely on my side but ya know, a girl can dream. Forget the end of the world as we know it (that [...]

  • The Divide is the conclusion to The Alliance, both written by Jolina Petersheim. The characters from book one return in great strength and vengeance. After the EMP strikes and cause so much destruction and killing those who remain must face their own mortality. What is each person willing to do to survive?The Amish and Mennonites must decide what means the most to them and it is shocking to see who takes which stand. This story is so intense you have to keep reading to see how it all turns out. [...]

  • In the book The Divide, author Jolina Petersheim continues the story of the Old Order Mennonite community and the EMP attack on the US. We once again follow Leora Ebersole and the struggle of her family and Mennonite community surviving after fleeing to the mountains from the destruction of their community by the hands of roving gangs.This was a good read but very confusing at the beginning. I read the first book but felt lost and some of the story did not connect at first. The struggle with the [...]

  • The completion of an outstanding look at the possible realities of a global apocalypse held me captive until the last sentence. The Old Order Mennonite community stands to loose everything even their faith at times. Others continue to defend anything they own from marauders. This penetrating novel illustrates what could happen to our world when all the ordinary modern conveniences are stripped away. Who will survive? What will people sacrifice in order to stay alive? Inner hearts are revealed in [...]

  • I read The Alliance a while ago, and when it just dropped off at the end, I was really hoping to get to read the next part soon. (Read that review here.) The Divide is that sequel, so now I can breathe a sigh of relief. It picks right up where the gangs have invaded the Mennonite / Amish community, and they are leaving for safer ground. There is a lot of violence, especially for this kind of community, but each character must find out what they're made of and how far they'll go in the name of su [...]

  • The Divide is the much anticipated conclusion to The Alliance. Of the two books I think I enjoyed The Alliance more, but that takes nothing away from The Divide. I just felt that the first book read faster and was more intense and the second had a couple of places that bogged down to me.I enjoyed reading a dystopian story that felt plausible. There were many times that the characters had to make decisions in the moment that revealed what their true beliefs were. It was interesting that some held [...]

  • This is the sequel to The Alliance. What happens when an EMP explodes over a plain community? How do they stay together when private and government militias are putting people in camps and leaving young children left to fend for themselves. What happens when a pacifist finds herself having to use a weapon? All of these questions are answered in The Divide. Being a fan of dystopian fiction and EMP disasters, I knew I would enjoy this series. While the first book sets up how they will live right a [...]

  • CompellingWritten so beautifully and in such detail. God's grace and humanities failings and growth are set out in an unorthodox story that pulls you in with every page.

  •   I really enjoy reading Amish/Mennonite fiction and this one had a twist!  This is book two and we get more about what could happen if an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) shuts down all electricity and focuses on a Mennonite community continuing saga and what happens in their area. I found it interesting and there was a lot going on through the whole book. I liked how each main character's thoughts were under their name so you knew who was being focused on. I really liked it and so, if you like Am [...]
