Roger Emile Stouff

about this book: A story of three lives and the influences that molded them, "A Divide Beyond Reason" examines how the choices we make do not always turn out the way we hope.

Matt Bromley, Gordon Bredenbury and Casey Engleman were like brothers; they were born but a few weeks apart. As boys they were inseparable and adventurous; during the summer of 1936 they built a wooden rowboat, probed the secrets of a dark carnival and a mysterious Goat Boy, and were thrust into the path of a crazed Indian loner and a crime that shocked their small mountain community.

As grown men they remained as close as kin, but their lives slowly diverged until at last, as old men, they are reunited after years of estrangement and under the shadow of a crime carried out within the loose letters of a twisted law.

Now Matt Bromley faces the loss of his home to developers and corrupt county officials. He awaits the eviction with a shotgun in his hands. Casey Engleman has sided with those who will seize the Bromley farm for dubious purposes. And Gordon Bredenbury is the sheriff who must serve the order that will rip his lifelong friend from his home.

The idea for "A Divide Beyond Reason" resulted from a newspaper article I read concerning abuse and misuse of eminent domain law. It laments an age that many of us sorely miss, an age of reason, reliable justice and honor. And it asks, just what truly is important to us? Important enough to die for.
