Publisher's Summary

Ava's had a hard life, and it's about to get a whole lot tougher!

The deck is stacked against 29-year-old Ava. She’s a fighter, but she’s got trust issues and doesn’t always make the best decisions. Despite her natural beauty, she doesn’t score well in the self-esteem department. Her personal complications aren’t without merit, but America is on the verge of a second civil war, and Ava must pull it together if she wants to survive.

Ava has just lost her adoptive mother to cancer. Her fiancé broke off the engagement shortly after her mom got sick. She has no idea who her biological father is and her adoptive dad walked out on his family for the sweet young thing at the office 15 years ago. With such a long history of loss and abandonment, it’s understandable why she’s hesitant to put her faith in people, but now it’s affecting her relationship with God.

Meanwhile, the tentacles of the deep state have infiltrated every facet of American culture. The public education system, entertainment industry, and mainstream media have all been hijacked by a shadow government intent on fomenting a communist revolution in the United States. The antagonistic message of this agenda has poisoned the minds of America’s youth who are now convinced that capitalism and conservativism are responsible for all the ills of the world. Violent protest, widespread destruction, and politicians who insist on letting the disassociated vent their rage will bring America to her knees, threatening to decapitate the laws, principles, and values on which the country was founded.

Ava refuses to give into fear, but she simply cannot survive on her own. She must deal with her crisis of faith and learn to trust other people, or she’ll never make it through the bloodiest period of America’s history.

Another fabulous story by Mark Goodwin!

Like all of Mark’s books, this is an extremely plausible story line set within the headlines of today and the likely headlines of the next few years. With an incredibly likable and believable protagonist, and a supporting cast of characters (both good and bad), Mark has woven another believable tale that will grab your attention and delight you at the same time.

This book is not tied to any of Mark’s prior works, making it perfect for an introduction to the genre and to Mark’s own books.

I highly recommend the audio edition. Stacey Glemboski does a superb job bringing the characters to life. You can feel her emotions and her energy throughout the entire book. I predict a very bright future for her as a narrator.

Another Winner

What was one of the most memorable moments of Divided We Fall: A Post-Apocalyptic Novel of America's Coming Civil War ?

When Ava decided to follow The Lord rather than give up.

What about Stacey Glemboski’s performance did you like?

Everything was great

If you could take any character from Divided We Fall: A Post-Apocalyptic Novel of America's Coming Civil War out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Silly

Any additional comments?

This is another great novel by Mark. The similarities and analogies to our modern day America is fantastic. Very engrossing and has me on edge waiting for the next book in the series.

Black & White, no gray area in between

I read alot in this sub-genre; and am pretty disappointed by the one-sided portrayal of American society. Everything is all or nothing, black or white, "either you're on my side, or you're the enemy" attitude. This particular book is just another example of that pattern. Come' on, writers, broaden your horizons, try considering some other points of view. Just because someone disagrees with your political or religious points of view, does not make them an evil person. Religion does not have a monopoly on morality. It IS possible to be a good person, without being a religious one.

Looking forward to book 2

What did you love best about Divided We Fall: A Post-Apocalyptic Novel of America's Coming Civil War ?

Mark weaves his Christian believes into the political landscape of our times, to bring one more possibility of how we are taking our country over the cliff.

What about Stacey Glemboski’s performance did you like?

It took me a while to get accustomed to Stacey as most of Mark's books that I have listened to have been performed by Kevin Pierce. But, Stacey did a great job!

Excessively Preachy and Religious

I would have appreciated the same content if it had preached less and showed via the storyline it's plot, mission, and theme. The preachy approach made it unbelievable. I do like dystopian fiction and respect the US constitution, but this book was boring.

Excellent start to a new series

Mark Goodwin is one of my favorite authors. He did an excellent job creating “real”, well-thought out characters who are struggling with everyday problems and are faced with societal breakdown. I love the way he weaves faith and God into the story, and includes Bible verses to support his chapters. I also really enjoy the little tips he throws in there to teach us ways to become more prepared for hard times. I feel this book is timely and thought-provoking. I didn’t want to put it down.

This is the first book I listened to that was narrated by Stacey Glemboski. She did a great job hooking me into the story, keeping me entertained and enjoying her narration. She has a way of letting the material flow smoothly, at a consistent and realistic pace. Excellent performance.

Awesome!

At first I wasn’t sure about getting this book, but after the first chapter I was hooked. I listened to the entire book over 2 days. If you like Mark Goodwin then I would recommend this book.

Fantastic Beginning to Another Great Series!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Very realistic scenario given the current social/political environment. A great look into what it might be like for a typical American that is not prepared for what may lie ahead.

What other book might you compare Divided We Fall: A Post-Apocalyptic Novel of America's Coming Civil War to and why?

Days of Noah as it has kind of a mixed bag of characters from one end of the spectrum to the other in terms of being in touch with what's going on around us. As always, a great Christian perspective and counter characters. Hmm, wonder if Raquel is Elliott in the making? lol

Which character – as performed by Stacey Glemboski – was your favorite?

Ava and Foley

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Political Powder Keg

Any additional comments?

Was pleasantly surprised by Stacey. It's tough to hear Mark's work being narrated by anyone other than Kevin. But Stacey did a phenomenal job! I only live about two hours from Austin and love listening to books with a Texas setting to which I can identity. Can't wait for the next one!

Fairly disappointed in this book...

I have been a big fan of Mark Goodwin for a while now. I was very excited about this new series. However, It was a hard book to get through. It was just very bland! I have read other reviews comment on the narrator, But I for one, believe she did a good job. She seems to be a good storyteller. I'm just not sure if this was the best story for her to tell. Not trying to be negative toward her at all. The best classical opera singer would not be good singing heavy medal Rock-n-Roll. Additionally, I felt like Mark just tried too hard to get inside the head of this emotionally damaged young lady. I appreciate the attempt by Mark to try to tell this young lady's story. I think he may have tried just a little too hard. I felt like the story just drug and drug constantly spinning but not going anywhere. I hope that the series picks up from here because I have to finish any story I start.
