Across the Divide by Elizabeth Bernays is a captivating story that follows the lives of Elizabeth, Linda, and several other intriguing characters. Elizabeth, a passionate lover of science, nature, and discovery, rarely has time for TV shows like SpongeBob. As a result, she doesn't know much about them. However, her friend Linda, who accompanies her on research expeditions, is more knowledgeable about TV shows and is keen on educating Elizabeth in that area. During their research on caterpillars, Linda wears a first-aid bracelet due to her allergy to bees. Their mutual attraction also leaves Elizabeth wondering about their relationship. The outcome of their research and personal dynamics remains a mystery that readers can uncover by delving into the book.
I was engrossed as I followed the two women on their research project about caterpillars. As the story progressed, I was captivated by the author's creativity. This book was totally different from what I expected, and it spoke volumes about supporting each other, embracing our differences, and learning to live with one another. Elizabeth loved her husband and respected him, even though she had another relationship. Her love for science was quite interesting.
My favorite character in this book is Elizabeth because of her passion for science. Even at her age, she was still out there making new discoveries. Her passion truly inspired me. After reading this book, I discovered that age is just a number. Her love for science was totally amazing; she loved it and put her whole heart into doing what she loved.
There is nothing I dislike about this book. I love the fact that even when the characters had differences, they were able to stay together. It just shows that even though we are different in nature and character, we can still live together, as everyone can't be exactly the same. I applaud the author for her creative prowess. I also want to thank the editor because I didn't notice any errors in the book, which indicates that it is exceptionally edited.
I rate this book five out of five stars because it taught me how to stay together and tolerate one another. I recommend this book to everyone, especially those who enjoy reading about research.
