From the back cover: 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.
Let me start by saying that I think that this book may be Mr. Whitlow’s best yet! There is a town that really needs help. There is the Gage Family that really needs help. As the Family begins to heal then so does the town. “A House Divided” is full of suspense and intrigue. Corbin takes on the defense of two boys going up against a fertilizer company that is a big employer. For Justice to be served he is going to need the help of both his son and daughter. For that to happen God is going to have to intervene. In “A House Divided” there are so many twists and turns that you will be amazed at the outcome of the story. Robert Whitlow has written interesting characters in Corbin, Ray and Roxy that keep us involved in the story and make us root for them to win. “A House Divided” is a powerful story and one that will keep you highly interested and flipping pages as fast as you can. I liked this book and recommend it to your reading list.
