After completing their deployments to Afghanistan, three American soldiers return home. But a raid on an Afghan village they were involved in has left them with deep moral uncertainties. Being back in America brings them no peace.
After visiting his mother in Montana, one of the three men disappears into the vast wilderness of Glacier National Park. His destination is Triple Divide Peak, a mount top from which the rainfall flows into three oceans. The other two men, fearing for his well-being, undertake separate missions to rescue him. Will they find him in time? And in their attempts to do that, what truths—if any—will they discover about themselves and each other?
Inspired by Homer’s The Odyssey, the novel depicts each of the men’s personal odyssey of courage, self-knowledge, and redemption. It portrays the psychological and emotional aftermath that war can have on the soldiers who fought in it, and the redemptive power of those who love them.
“While this novel is first and foremost an adventure and a thriller, Triple Divide is also an inspiring take on the human condition, able to open human hearts to self-awareness and, I think, a deeper peace.” — Michael Gurian, New York Times bestselling author of Saving Our Sons and The Stone Boys
“Triple Divide is a fast-paced novel exploring the long-term consequences of the hard decisions made in war on those who fight. Tobin vividly describes both people and the landscapes they move through, giving particular care to the deep, oft-unspoken bonds between men. I couldn’t put down this gripping book!” — Kayla Williams, author of the memoir, Love My Rifle More than You
