Searching for Eternity begins in France with 12 year old Emile De Bonnery... the son of a French father and American mother. Emile loves in life in Lyon and never plans on it changing. But then in the course of 24 hours a most drastic change occurs. Emile's father disappears and he and his mother flee to America leaving behind everything he has ever know.
Over the course of his teenage years, Emile adapts to the American South as best he can. He befriends Eternity Jones, a girl with as much uncertainty in her life as he has in his. Emile's search for the truth about his father sends him digging into the past... the French Resistance... and the closer he comes to finding the truth, the more difficult it is to conceive.
