Book Summary

Inspired by true events, Indivisible is a story of love, service, and finding each other all over again.

Darren and Heather Turner share a passion for serving God, family, and country. When Darren is deployed to Iraq as an army chaplain, Heather vows to serve military families back home as she cares for the couple’s three young children.

Darren knows he’s overseas to support the troops in their suffering as their chaplain. What he doesn’t know is how he will get through his own dark moments. And as communication from Darren dwindles, Heather wonders what is happening in her husband’s heart. Meanwhile, she’s growing weary in the day-to-day life of a military base—each child’s milestone Darren will never see, each month waiting for orders, each late-night knock on the door.

When Darren returns, he is no longer the husband Heather once knew. She is no longer the woman Darren wed. And so it’s at home that the Turners face their biggest battle: to save their marriage.

Based on the screen play by David Evans, Indivisible is a tribute to the beauty of serving our country, the courage of choosing love in the darkness, and the power of a God who never gives up hope.

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.

Book Review by Bree Herron

I can honestly say I don’t know what category this book would fall in, I haven’t read anything truly like it before. It was heart wrenching and heart warming all at the same time. The struggles our characters face are realistic to the bone. The emotions they feel will leave you feeling the same. Some moments I was tired emotionally from a chapter, others lifted me up and gave me hope.

Heather and Darren make this story come to life. Seriously, I was blown away by how real these characters felt to me. It wasn’t just on the pages but in my mind. I easily saw it playing out. I felt for Heather in so many moments, as a single mom of one I couldn’t imagine having to take care of three mainly on my own. Heather faces struggles and fears that no parent wants to face. Darren however, was not only facing terror but darkness he could never imagine. At one point in therapy Darren mentions how he can’t recall when Heather and him first met because the bad thoughts attack. This hit what I think many with PTSD and war wounds feel, that sometimes the light is too far out of reach. This book though isn’t dark moments but hope and coming back to the light.

I think that this is an impactful Christian Fiction novel. It will touch everyone who reads it in different ways. But I feel confident in saying that everyone who reads this book would be recommending it and sharing it with those around them. It isn’t an easy read, but the best books aren’t. The best books make you feel, think, and explore the storyline beyond just the pages.
