The Great Divide

By Lynette Ferreira 

Embark on a poignant journey of love, acceptance, and the transformative power of music in The Great Divide, a young adult sweet romance that challenges the boundaries of prejudice and celebrates the universal language that connects us all. 

Seventeen-year-old Chrissie's acceptance into The Christian Academy promises a world of opportunities. Yet, her father's hidden relief reveals a deep-seated bias, setting the stage for a tale that explores the great divide between privilege and acceptance. As Chrissie enters the exclusive halls of academia, she discovers that destiny has a unique melody in store for her.

Chrissie's journey takes an unexpected turn when she auditions as a backup singer for ÉLastique, a school band led by the charismatic eighteen-year-old Vincent. The notes of their connection resonate, transcending the color lines drawn by society. 

Vincent, a talented black musician, becomes the lead singer in the composition of Chrissie's heart, challenging the prejudices that seek to silence their love.

The Great Divide delves into the poignant struggles of love in the face of societal expectations. Chrissie and Vincent navigate a world where prejudices threaten to create dissonance, and the path to acceptance requires courage and strength. As they face the challenges of their divergent backgrounds, the symphony of their love plays on, bridging the gaps that divide.

Join Chrissie and Vincent as they navigate the delicate chords of romance against the backdrop of societal expectations and the harmonies of their hearts.
