Ms. Estes’ debut inspirational fiction is filled with darkness and terror, evil and demons battling for control. Using the cover of the church and secret societies, demons hold sway over those who have denounced faith, or who are weak-willed. Even Margo and her husband Chris’s friends are close to tragedy in this story of spiritual battle.
Told in multiple viewpoints, The Dividing Stone whips the reader from heaven to earth to the realms of the demonic in fast action. Detailed, brittle, even gory in places, the story unfolds as Margo gradually closes in on the truth of the events surrounding her ancestry in a quaint New England community. Little does she know the forces unleashed that fateful day of a long-ago suspected suicide have never left and are simply waiting to finish what they began when Margo finds a cursed piece of antiquity.
