The Rift

About the Book

In the serene town of Pine Wood, nestled in the leafy embrace of Clinton County, the echo of a nation divided reverberates in ‘The Rift,’ an enthralling family drama. Unveil the intricacies of Tyler and Jenna’s lives, once inseparable siblings raised in a blissfully apolitical home, now torn asunder by the escalating polarisation of politics and the pervasive culture war.

Against the backdrop of the tumultuous January 6th insurrection in the nation’s capital, Tyler seeks refuge in Jenna’s home with her husband, Matthew, and their three children. However, he becomes ensnared in a web of far-right conspiracy theories. As Tyler’s beliefs start to have a detrimental effect on the entire family, Jenna faces a critical juncture, torn between allegiance to her brother and the well-being of her family. Can she navigate this perilous path and avert an impending tragedy?

Embark on a journey through the relentless tension and gripping dynamics of ‘The Rift,’ set in contemporary America, exploring the unravelling threads of loyalty, political awakening, and the tragic consequences of ideological extremities. Discover how the characters’ experiences shape their views and the profound impact it has on their lives.

About the Author

I’m Jamie Krell, based in Manchester, UK, and I’m an emerging writer with a profound passion for politics and current affairs. In my professional journey, I’ve earned an MSc in Human Resources Management and a BA (Hons) in Business Management.

Surprisingly, my desire to write a book only blossomed in the past couple of years. Now, with my debut novel, “The Rift,” I navigate the complexities of contemporary American politics through the lives of siblings Jenna and Tyler. This narrative delves into societal divisions and the enduring resilience of family bonds amid ideological polarisation.

Beyond writing, my enduring love for travel takes centre stage. Exploring diverse cultures and societies has always been a source of inspiration for me.
