Reviewed by Michelle Robertson for Readers' Favorite Indivisible? The Story Of The Second American Civil War is written by Paul Martin Midden. The author has described this book as being of the  General, Fiction-Thriller-Genre. Recommendation for the reader audience would put emphasis on adult readers. Given the plot, educated and experienced readers may fare better with understanding it than younger readers. The story subject contexts are values, morals, and history within the people of the United States, and the United States itself. During the American Civil war fought 1861-1865, a Confederate soldier by the name of Abraham Bellamy is described to have love, passion, loyalty,  and without a doubt devotion to the Southern morals and values bred into him throughout his childhood. But just as the war ends and the South surrenders, so does he. After such a heartbreaking defeat for the southern cause, how can any aspect of their cause ever be reinstated  into society again? This man did leave behind a family, but not of his own offspring, but his siblings, who in turn had children, and so on. The story of This man's love for the Southern cause, and his death had been passed down through the generations. A few generations passed and then came a man, by the name of Abner Bellamy, who is living in present day 2012. He discovers, with the help of a woman, the love of the Confederate cause. With confidential meetings, talk of treason, secret meetings, and Federal Agents, can the Confederate cause of the Southern states rise up and fight another civil war?   Paul Martin Midden has done an incredible job writing this story. This plot is so inconceivable to the minds of most present day Americans, it will leave all readers in a constant state of eagerness, anxiety, and inability to stop reading, as they turn each page. A plot that is a well known topic in today's media and individual conversations of the people in the United States. With all the chaos going on in present daily life, some might believe this story is not so much a story as a preview of what is to come.

At the start of Indivisible there is a short introducton to the Battle of Manassas, VA in July, 1861, at the beginning of the Civil War. It is here that Abraham Bellamy and his cousin Hank meet and it is here where Hank will meet his end. In his last breath he tells his cousin Abraham, "Don’t worry about me, I get to die happy." Then we move forward to Appomattox, VA in April, 1865 where General Lee is there to sign the papers that will end the War Between the States, and the southern states are about to be forced back into the Union. Abraham Bellamy has gotten through the war but knows that things will never be the same again, so he takes his gun out and kills himself in the Virginia countryside. In part 1, Chapter 1, called the Dream, the first thing the reader sees is the assassination of President Obama and then the story switches to Vice President Biden who is waiting for the Chief Justice to come and swear him in. When the door opens Biden expects the Justice to come in, but instead he is told that the Justice has been killed and now they are after Biden. However!! This was a bad dream of Biden’s and, after all, it was just a dream. The author is setting us up to get used to the idea that the “South is about to Rise Again” and there will be many who will look to their Government for all solutions to the basic problems facing the citizens of the 21st Century and many who see that the Government is, in itself, the problem and wish to change that. After the Civil War many states were forced to take what they could get and like it in order to unify the country...and they did. But, now there are some who want a new Civil War and who have the resources to make it happen. Abner Bellamy, a distant grandson of the original Abraham, who shot himself at Appomattox, feels the same way about the United States of America as his relative did. Abner brings twenty-two men – two from each state that had formed the Confederate States – and they re-write the Declaration of Independence. In another part of the country, a very wealthy man by the name of David Blinder, along with some of his powerful friends, are starting to stockpile weapons and gather favors from folks who believed that the Federal Government was going in the wrong direction. These two, Bellamy and Blinder, come together and are ready to start the second Civil War. But, take heart, for the good guys are out there and working to stop these two groups from ruining the United States of America. Indivisible is very graphic and the scenes are quite real when it comes to the killings of the President, Vice President and Chief Justice. Written very well, the reader will believe every word about the impending civil war and many who will hang on every word. Just imagining how a Civil War in the 21st Century would be, and perhaps thinking it’s possible, is the one eerie feeling that will not easily subside. Quill says: This book is a good read for people who don't want to get a good night’s sleep.
