Former Klansman and Alabama native David Earl Applewhite’s journey, on the rugged road to redemption, lasts fifty years. It ends in a way no one will see coming, and with his wretched battle with the demons of his own creation. "The Water Line" is a story that shows the destructive effects of hate, and the healing power of love and forgiveness few could imagine.
From the author: I offer my deepest and sincerest thanks to Ms. Cicely Tyson and Robert Duvall. Your immeasurable talent, body of work, and unique personal attributes served as exacting templates for this story’s principal characters: David Earl Applewhite and Sarah Davis.
