Summary
"Ben Jameson begins his teaching career in a small private school in Northern Virginia. He is idealistic, happy to have his first job after graduate school and hoping some day to figure out what he really wants out of life. In the two years he teaches English at Glenn Acres Preparatory School, he discovers what he believes will be his life's work; teaching is what he finally comes to with all his heart. His fiance believes he suffers from a 'Christ complex, ' that he wants to 'save the world' entire by involving himself in the lives of his students. Three students in particular, draw him in: an abused boy, a mute and damaged girl, and a dangerous but utterly beautiful 18 year old woman who has come back to school for one more chance to graduate. His attempts to 'save' these students lead him to territory his mentor and friend, the oldest teacher at Glenn Acres, Professor Bible, tells him he should not be in. It's a book about giving; it's about the nature of help--and it takes on the true complexity of that urge as it plays out in that most fraught (and yet common) of settings, a school. It is a book that explores both human frailty and the limits of benevolence."--Page 4 of cover
