Overview

A prodigal son returns home to discover what is truly important in life: family, freedom, and love. 'From Across the Divide' is a story about lost faith, perseverance, and forbidden love in a racially charged city in 1963 Alabama.

Eric Montgomery, son of a prominent white banker, returns home after a seven-year absence where he's lived a life of debauchery. Grief from the loss of a loved one has shattered his faith in God. His life is lacking, and home may be the only place he can regain a sense of purpose. He is reunited with his best friend from childhood, Elnora (Elie) Brown, the daughter of his father's horse trainer. Elie has grown to be a beautiful woman of color with impenetrable morals and high ideals, but her self-righteous attitude challenges him to find a kink in her armor. Their differences ignite an attraction that Elie must deny for reasons of faith, and Eric must pursue to dull the pain of his past and the shame of his sins.

Racial tension is high in Freeman and Eric isn't prepared for the atrocities of a community divided by the color of skin. An invitation to a local Civil Rights group forces him to reconsider his values and his choices in life. When Elie is attacked, Eric finds his heart turning back to the faith of his youth. Will God finally listen to his prayers? And when Elie witnesses Eric's heart changing, will she accept the prodigal or deny the love that has been in her heart since her days as a young girl? Can their love survive when Elie's parents forbid it?
