Divergent Lives is the compelling true story of two brothers whose lives have taken dramatically different turns. After more than 30 years of estrangement, they are suddenly reunited by tragedy when Nelson suffers two strokes and requires brain surgery. Israel visits his brother at the hospital, and seeing Nelson in a coma—with monstrous stitches where half his skull has been removed—propels him down Memory Lane. He yearns for an understanding of the root cause of their decades-old separation and an explanation for their wildly divergent lives.
Nelson is barely clinging to life and with little chance of recovery, but Israel is compelled to find a measure of peace and resolution about their relationship. With the clarity gained by careful reflection and years of separation, he must strip away the veneer of bitterness and frustration to reveal the brotherly bond that he hopes still lies beneath.
