Resigning from his prestigious position at a law firm, Marcus Glenwood returns to his childhood home in Rocky Mount to escape his memories. However, when the community is drawn into a legal battle to keep their land from a large manufacturing company, Marcus can no longer sit back and nurse his wounds.
His old law firm comes out of the woodwork, determined to slander Marcus who appears like Daniel in the lions den. However, infiltrating the manufacturing company is a young woman who is able to send proof of their illegal actions to her close friend, Kirsten Stanstead, who in turn provides Marcus with portions of this information. With so much at stake, Kirsten fights her growing attraction for Marcus. He trusts her but just cant seem to reach her. Will they win the legal fight and find each other, or will the battle destroy their blossoming relationship?
THE GREAT DIVIDE is an allegory about seeking earthly or heavenly treasures, filled with suspense and human drama. Extremely well-written, this is a page-turner to the very end. (May, 390 pp., $19.95)
