The Divide (The Alliance #2) by Jolina Petersheim

In this gripping conclusion to The Alliance
, nearly six months have passed since Leora Ebersole's Old Order Mennonite community fled to the mountains for refuge after an attack destroyed the power grid and altered life as they knew it. Since then, Leora has watched and waited for news of Moses Hughes, the young Englischer pilot who held off invading looters long enough for everyone to escape. Unsure Moses even survived, Leora has begun to warm to the affections of Jabil Snyder, who has courted her patiently. But she struggles to see herself as the bishop's wife, especially when she learns that Moses is alive and has now joined a local militia.

An unexpected encounter in the woods deepens Leora's crisis, as does a terrifying new threat that brings Moses' militia into the community's shaky alliance with the few Englischers left among them. When long-held beliefs are once again put to the test, Leora wrestles with the divide between having faith and taking action. Just how much will her shifting landscape change her?

My Review

just finished reading The Divide and am sure it is going to be with me for a long time, this is the sequel to The Alliance, and you really need to treat yourself to both.
This book picks up where we left off, and Moses has been shot, but who else is still trying to protect? Life has gotten so much harder, if that is hard to believe, and yet the will to live continues.
Can you even imagine the suffering, all that you have ever know and thought you had to have is gone! The EMT has taken it all, all but the will to survive, and our group is Mennonite and have always lived with less, but things are not all that easy for them, and others want the little they have.
Will those we have come to care about survive to the end? Or is this really the end of the world? Come and enjoy the conclusion to this dystopian, and find out what has happened to those that we have come to care for.
I received this book through Edelweiss and the Publisher Tyndale, and was not required to give a positive review.
