Though he leaves behind his new wife and their baby daughter, he is thrilled to be pursuing his lifelong dream-only to be shipped off to Pearl Harbor when the war begins. When he narrowly survives the 1941 attack, thanks to the courage of a black sailor he doesnt know, Morris is determined to seek out the mans family and express his gratitude and respect. On leave, he tracks down the mans sister, and finds an immediate, undeniable connection with the nurturing yet fiercely independent Beatrice, who has left the stifling South of her upbringing for the more liberal, integrated north.Though both try to deny their growing bond, their connection and understanding is everything missing from Morriss hasty marriage to his high school sweetheart Agnes, and from Beatrices plodding life as she grieves the brother she has lost.

At once a family epic, and a historical drama that takes readers from World War II through the Civil Rights Movement to the present day, A Life Apart is about a love that creates complicated and unbreakable ties between two families that live worlds apart. L.Y. Marlow brings readers along for the emotional journey as Morris and Beatrices relationship is tested by time, family loyalties, racial tensions, death, unending guilt, and the profound effects of war.
