Overview

Unequally Divided takes place during the late 1960s when the nation is split over the Vietnam War, civil rights issues, and political turmoil. Jorden Marshall, a young school teacher, from Columbus, Georgia is fighting to define her own beliefs. She and Lt. Alex Whelan, her future husband, present a united front not to be broken by the terrible war he is fighting in. Certainly, not by the friendship of Lt. Matt Ulster. Jorden and Matt are slated for different directions: Matt to Vietnam and Jorden to marry Alex. They have a mutual understanding there will be no commitments between them. He calls himself her escort, not a date; therefore, no problem. But neither, Jorden or Matt, is prepared for their final hours together before they go separate ways. Jorden has lingering doubts. Still, she is determined to remain loyal to Alex; or is she?

About the Author

Jane E. Harper was born in North Carolina and grew up in Pennsylvania. She earned a bachelor's degree from Auburn University, taught middle school in Georgia, Utah, and overseas. Later, she moved to Alaska and pursued a career in accounting. After retiring, she turned to writing; the path she had longed to follow. Harper's perspective of the tumultuous late 1960s is different from the typical impression of the era, such as the hippie subculture in Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco and the Woodstock Festival in New York. The setting is in Columbus, Georgia, near Fort Benning Army base, depicting the struggles of soldiers training for war. Extensively researched, the novel delves into the era's history with flashes of music, religion, and women's issues.
