Love may Feel




When Portia Kane finds her husband cheating on her again she decides to follow up on the feminist ideas in her head and make het life her own. Returning to her home town she finds out that the English teacher that helped her a lot when she was a teenager has been trough a rough time in life and she decides to try and help him.

First of all this book is rocking!! All the best (or worst depending on your lifestyle) 80's rock songs are thrown around the pages. It was like a trip down musical memory lane.
The story is told trough 4 main characters. Portia Kane. Nate Vernon, the teacher. His mother and Chuck Bass another former student of Mr. Vernon and a friend of Portia.
Every voice brings the story further but also tells pieces from the past making it a story about whole lives complete with deception, loss, love, hope. Each voice has its own sound giving the me the feeling I really was with the other character. What I did feel and actually enjoyed was even though Chuck feels less than Portia, despite the fact that she did not finish college either, their voices came close. She is not much different than he is and I really felt like telling him all the time.
This story is about finding yourself when you are lost and though there are parts of the story to ridiculous there are other parts that are vulnerable and hopeful and sweet. It is a book full of emotions.

I do think it is. I read a few books by him and though they are all very well written the entry level for this one is great!
