In a clash of light and darkness, can courage prevail?
Rescuing a toddler from the jaws of a mountain lion, Trevor MacDaniel, a high-country outfitter, sets in motion events he can't foresee. His act of bravery entwines his life with gifted sculptor Natalie Reeve—and attracts a grim admirer.
Trevor's need to guard and protect is born of tragedy, prompting his decision to become a search and rescue volunteer. Natalie's gift of sculpting comes from an unusual disability that seeks release through her creative hands. In each other they see strength and courage as they face an incomprehensible foe.
When a troubled soul views Trevor as archangel and adversary, Redford's peaceful mountain community is threatened. Together with Police Chief Jonah Westfall, Trevor presses his limits to combat the menace who targets the most helpless and innocent.

Praise for Kristen Heitzmann
“With a gifted pen, Kristen Heitzmann weaves a gripping tale of intense trials, and she peoples it with brave, ravaged souls who mold their limitations into blessings—and soar! Courageous. Remarkable. Insightful. Indelible is all that and more.”
—Vicki Hinze, award-winning author of Deadly Ties
“Kristen Heitzmann is a masterful storyteller. With compelling characters, lyrical prose, and spine-chilling suspense, she weaves another rich tapestry in Indelible.”
—Colleen Coble, author of Lonestar Angel and the Rock Harbor series
“What she accordingly accomplishes here could be classified as rare and remarkable.… She creates scenes that are softly sensual and tension-filled, wrapped within a character-driven and ultimately uplifting mystery.…Indivisible is a strongly written work with a quirky and believable cast of characters and a plot that, though tightly woven, gives its protagonists room to breathe and grow. In fact, the people you will meet here are so memorable that you will want more of them, a prayer that hopefully will be answered in the near future.”
“Heitzmann does a great job of weaving the back stories and too-present realities of each character into a unified tapestry of regret, hope, and redemption.”
From the Trade Paperback edition.
Kirsten Potter is one of my most favorite female narrators, but she could not elevate this story. As a matter of fact, I could hardly believe that she agreed to read this sappy, other worldly mumbo-jumbo. I really struggled with listening to this story which seemed to go in circles. The opening scene was very interesting and had promise of developing into a really good mystery/suspense. The back stories about the two main characters was really interesting and their back stories supported why and how they became who they are today: a gifted sculptor with a photographic "eidetic" memory like Dustin Hoffman's Rain Man and a high country outfitter who is also a search and rescue volunteer.
I really thought this would be a good whodunit murder mystery/suspense story. There was nothing really interesting, except if you think it's interesting that a madman who dress in masks with horns and goes around kidnapping babies and children and then leave them in precarious places like the middle of the road, up in trees or hanging off cliffs....
I don't mind stories which have "other-worldly" themes, but I struggled with the villain passages which I understand was an attempt to parallel the villain in Milton's Paradise Lost. But the scenes was overwhelmingly frustrating and confusing for me.
This one was not for me. I was bored and could not finish.... didn't really care what happened or what the outcome would be. Also this is the sequel to the first novel by this author called Indivisible. There should be a warning/disclaimer that this novel is a sequel.
Avid reader of inspirational fiction and faith-based self help. Memoir-style, 1st person pov is ideal. Favs include C. Martin & L. Wingate!
Heitzmann weaves a tale with rich characters and an unexpected story line. Easy to fall into this read with a voracious appetite for more!
