UNEQUALLY DIVIDED is a wonderful surprise from first time author Jane E. Harper. While it could be called a mixed race romance novel, it is also a historical remembrance of the late sixties: the Vietnam war, civil rights, political change, domestic abuse and the sociological push into marriage many young women experienced.

The contemporary music of the sixties brought her story into reality for me. Although the novel is chiefly set in Columbus and Fort Benning, Georgia, it periodically moves from the deep south to New Jersey, New York and Alaska. There are many aspects to this narrative that I have found in my own life and I don’t imagine I am that unusual. It was a happy reunion.
