Blog Tour Review: A House Divided by Rachel McLean

A House Divided (#1 The Division Bell Trilogy) by Rachel McLean
Published: 24th September 2018
Publisher: Catawapus Press
Pages: 327
Available on Kindle
Rating: 5/5

Jennifer Sinclair is many things: loyal government minister, loving wife and devoted mother.

But when a terror attack threatens her family, her world is turned upside down. When the government she has served targets her Muslim husband and sons, her loyalties are tested. And when her family is about to be torn apart, she must take drastic action to protect them.

A House Divided is a tense and timely thriller about political extremism and divided loyalties, and their impact on one woman.


A House Divided is quite unlike any other book I’ve ever read, focusing on politics, racism and family loyalty it’s a very intense and dark read, but one which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Jennifer Sinclair is a loyal Labour government minister working in the Home Office, a loving wife and devoted mother to her two boys. The aftermath of a terrorist attack in Westminster slowly starts to turn her world upside down as she battles to be loyal to her government but also to protect her Muslim family. Jennifer is torn in two as she battles with government policy to overcome racial attacks but also to protect her family who are affected by the hate crimes and unrest emerging throughout the country. Jennifer must decide if she supports the government or her family in this intense and thrilling read.
Set in the present day and moving towards our future this was very chilling in places to read as events in this could so easily be our reality, if they’re not already and I found that quite unnerving to read about. I found this book an incredibly gripping book which has been well thought out and moves at fast pace, gradually gaining momentum as it came to a very climatic ending, leaving me desperate to find out what happens to Jennifer and her family next.
I can highly recommend A House Divided as an intense and chilling read which you will not be able to put down. It’s opened my eyes to many things and left me with many thoughts and questions. Thank you Rachel McLean for introducing me to a new genre of writing, I can’t wait for your next book.
I’d also like to thank Rachel’s random Resources for sending me this copy to read and invite me to be part of the blog tour.
About the Author

I'm Rachel McLean and I write thrillers and speculative fiction.

I'm told that the world wants upbeat, cheerful stories - well, I'm sorry but I can't help. My stories have an uncanny habit of predicting future events (and not the good ones). They're inspired by my work at the Environment Agency and the Labour Party and explore issues like climate change, Islamophobia, the refugee crisis and sexism in high places. All with a focus on how these impact individual people and families.
