9780062417152: Love May Fail: A Novel

Portia Kane is having a meltdown. After escaping her ritzy Florida life and her cheating pornographer husband, she finds herself back in South Jersey, a place that remains largely unchanged from the years of her unhappy youth. Lost and alone, looking for the goodness she believes still exists in the world, Portia sets off on a quest to save the one man who always believed in her—and in all of his students: her beloved high school English teacher, Mr. Vernon, who has retired broken and alone after a traumatic classroom incident.

Will a sassy nun, an ex–heroin addict, a metalhead little boy, and her hoarder mother help or hurt Portia’s chances on this quest to resurrect a good man and find renewed hope in the human race? Love May Fail is a story of the great highs and lows of existence, and of the heartache and daring choices it takes to become the person you know (deep down) you are meant to be.

From the Back Cover:

"It doesn't matter how I got here. What I do with the puzzle pieces that are now in front of me—that's what matters.

Save Mr. Vernon.

My three-word quest.

Why I'm here in this time and space."
