By H. L. Wegley


America holds its collective breath awaiting a twenty-first-century Fort Sumter.
As America fractures along geopolitical boundaries—left against right, blue against red—the nation has become a powder keg. The tiniest spark might light the fuse detonating Civil War 2.
Zach Tanner, Constitutionalist and radio host, has a growing radio network until Oregon’s progressive governor, Sandra Harper, shuts him down. Zach encourages Oregonian Constitutionalists to flee with him to Eastern Oregon to defend families and friends from the coming war. He envisions a powerful radio station broadcasting hope to America.
Kate Alexander, a new Christian and a fan of Zach’s radio show, wants to escape to Eastern Oregon, leaving lawless Salem, where her aunt, Governor Sandra Harper, has declared martial law, activated the State Guard, and ordered the police and military to find her beloved niece so Sandra can “fix” Kate and restore her to the most powerful political family in the state.
When Zach begins his broadcasts, progressive president, Wendell Walker, wants Zach and Kate eliminated. Governor Harper wants Kate returned and rehabilitated. The Constitutionalist’s militia defends the two. When the three factions collide, can anyone win? If Zach and Kate survive, can they overcome the pain from their past and find a future together in the Divided States of America?
Riven, book 1 of the Riven Republic Series, set in Oregon and DC, features a supporting cast comprising dynamic characters who starred in several of H. L. Wegley’s previous novels.

Book Takeaway:

Only Christ ruling in people's hearts can fix the division we see in our nation and around our world. Also, the book illustrates how giving and receiving forgiveness frees us to have meaningful relationships, both with God and with other people.

Why the author wrote this book:

I planned this four-book series to show the nature of the divisions within our nation, to explore where they are taking us, and give hope to Americans by illustrating that God has orchestrated several "awakenings" in the past that have impacted our nation deeply and set us on a better course to be salt and light in a dark world.
