Publisher's Summary

Corbin Gage can stand up to anyone. But his own divided house will bring him to his knees.

Corbin, a longtime legal champion for the downtrodden, is slowly drinking himself into the grave. His love for "mountain water" has cost him his marriage to the godliest woman he knows, ruined his relationship with his daughter, Roxy, and reduced the business at his small Georgia law firm to a level where he can barely keep the bill collectors at bay. But it isn't until his son, Ray, threatens to limit Corbin's time with his grandson that Corbin begins to acknowledge he might have a problem.

Despite the mess that surrounds his personal life, and against the advice of everyone he knows, Corbin takes on a high-stakes tort case on behalf of two boys who have contracted non-Hodgkin's lymphoma due to an alleged chemical exposure. The defendant, a fertilizer company, is the largest employer in the area. The lawsuit becomes a tornado that sucks Corbin, Ray, and Roxy into an increasingly deadly vortex. Equally intense pressure within the family threatens to destroy, once and for all, the thin threads that connect them.

Corbin must find the strength to stand up to his personal demons. Justice for two dying boys depends on it...his family depends on it.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "I feel like I've been in a church..."

    listening to a long winded sermon for 11 hours. Novels written to sell a religious perspective are not my thing. I made a mistake of not learning more about the author and the type of book he writes. This book is like those written by Joel C Rosenberg on steroids. I expected a good legal thriller.

    And I did listen to a good legal thriller that ends as a tear jerker. I really have no complaints about the quality of the story; it is quite good! Indeed as a legal thriller it is better than Grisham's latest pathetic effort (Rogue Lawyer).

    I decided not to down rate A House Divided because of its pushing of a religious point of view. Instead, I have rated it solely on the quality of the story.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    Story
    "Alcoholism, Redemption and Family"

    I immediately liked Corbin . . . lawyer and champion to the downtrodden in the small Georgia town . . . and its no small coincidence that I did . . . as the adult child of an alcoholic, I identified very much with him and his family . . . when he courageously took on the case of the children who had non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, pitting himself and them against the biggest employer in the town, (alleging their illnesses were due to exposure to the chemicals from the local fertilizer plant), my respect grew for him . . . at the same time Corbin was fighting his own demons . . . about to lose the contact with his grandson, Billy, whom he adored, Corbin finally agrees to go to AA meetings . . . and is not entirely successful . . . this story of Corbin, his two grown children, Ray and Roxy . . . big law firms with $ in their eyes . . . rings very true . . . and I appreciate so much the honesty in this tale . . . the truth that life is so ironic, that GOOD lies in the heart of the alcoholics that we love, that justice and right and wrong can be very prevalent in their minds, and that they are fighting a battle that we cannot even fathom . . . the narration left a little to be desired, but otherwise, this is one of the best books . . . the conclusion, too, was very satisfying, both on the legal issue and the eventual healing of the family

    I enjoy reading Lynn Austin's historical fiction. Her books oh the Civil are awesome as well.

    Any additional comments?

    It was a wonderful book with a great story line. The narrator did a
    fair job. He was easy to listen to, however, he used the same voice for everything and everyone. He didn't try to change voices for different characters. However, I liked the book a lot and would recommend it.

    "Excellent Story!"

    I would recommend this book to anyone who has ever struggled with an addiction or moral issue. The solutions are worth trying.

    "Good Story"

    I really liked the story. That said, I thought the ending was a little rushed and left a lot of questions unanswered (and not in a cliffhanger way). I wish the book was a few chapters longer and the ending played out in a little more detail.

    All in all, I did enjoy the book and the performance was very good.

    "Loose ends"

    This. Book felt as though the author was in a hurry to finish it. There were many loose ends of the story left dangling. I have read better books by this author.

    "Too much unnecessary God bothering!"
    What disappointed you about A House Divided?

    I was enjoying listening to this tale of corporate crime and an alcoholic Lawyers' experiences with that, and with his family. Unfortunately, half way through, it became weighted down with US Southern style God bothering. It started to become something of a sermon. I persevered for some time, but God just featured more and more. Not my thing at all. Sadly, I must manage without conclusions on the corporate crime. I will return it for a refund.
