Full description for Love in the Present Tense
From the bestselling author of "Pay It Forward" comes a moving novel about the bond between a five year old abandoned by his mother and the man who raises him. After accidentally killing a police office five years ago, Pearl has managed to protect her bright, frail young son Leonard from her violent past. Then one day, Pearl drops him off with their neighbor Mitch, and never returns. Mitch is far from the ideal caretaker--he's having an affair with a client's wife--but he and Leonard must find a way to bridge the gap between them as they bond as parent and child.Gritty but big-hearted, "Love in the Present Tense" is an inspiring story of love and the surprising forms it can take.
