This book is a novel about five New York City educators and their search for meaningful and loving relationships as they struggle with the trials and tribulations that they face while working in the world’s largest school system. The story is about New York, its schools, its students, and the bureaucracy that forces individuals to circumvent policies that they perceive to be detrimental to their aims.

James introduces five protagonists. Hugh is a veteran administrator dealing with the complacency of a long marriage.
