Love May Fail

Matthew Quick

Portia Kane is having a meltdown. After escaping her cheating husband and their posh Florida life, she finds herself transported back home to memories of an unhappy childhood: she is back at square one. In need of saving herself, she sets out to find and resurrect a beloved high school English teacher who has retired after a horrific event in the classroom.

But it's not that simple. Mr Vernon isn't ready to be dragged back to real life and Portia must recover from her disappointment in a man who was an inspiration to her childhood self. Luckily she has met someone else on her journey. Chuck is the handsome brother of Portia's old school friend, so can he, a sassy nun and a metal-head little boy help Portia's chances in her bid for renewed hope in the human race? It is going to be a bumpy ride.
