Summary
On the banks of the Hudson River sits the rural town of Garrison, New York, home to Guinan's, an Irish drinking hole and country store. While searching for a temporary haven following the September 11th attacks, Manhattan journalist Wendy Bounds was delivered to Guinan's doorstep by a friend. And a visit that began with one beer turned into a life-changing encounter. Captivated by the bar's charismatic but ailing owner, Bounds moved to Garrison. There she became one of the rare female regulars at the old pub and was quickly swept up by its motley characters and charms. This book is a love story about a place, and the people who bring it to life. Filled with stories of joy and sorrow, of universal family struggles with loyalty, love, betrayal and redemption, it is as much about remembering to value the past as it is about learning to seize the present.--From publisher description
