Overview

Divide and Rule is the story of Hanno, an outsider and an unbeliever, who nevertheless conforms to society and presents himself at the temple as all youths his age must do. He knows he won't be chosen as the Shepherd because of his lack of faith. So when his worst fears are realised and he has to come to terms with giving a year of his life to the Temple, he is outraged. How can he retain his independence in such a harsh and corrupt regime? A stunning novel which raises questions of faith and individuality - one of three early works by Jan Mark which proved her versatility and displayed not only her intellectual vigour but her unparalleled storytelling skills.
