A multicast presentation is ideal for this convoluted story and its many characters. When Portia Kane finds her husband, a porn producer, with a young actress, she decides she's had enough, despite their lavish lifestyle. Narrator Cris Dukehart skillfully presents Kane's anger and self-loathing and, finally, her determination as she seeks out her high school English teacher, the one man who's never let her down. Jim Meskimen deftly portrays the diminished Mr. Vernon, who left teaching after being attacked by a student. Kane comes alive as she helps him rediscover his love of teaching. Most entertaining is Lorna Raver as wine-loving, spirited Sister Maeve Smith, who never gives up praying for Kane and Vernon. Listeners will be exhilarated by this loving tribute to teachers, writers, and literature. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2015]
