A heart-warming story about a little pub and country store just north of NYC that defeated all odds. And the people who ran it and became part of it also defeated most odds. Garrison, NY seems like a place I'd love to live in and perhaps work out of, from the author's fabulous description of it. The only negative thing I can say about this book is that the author seemed to want to become these people a little too much. She basically invited herself into the lives of the Guinans and gave up her previous way of living to live like her neighbors. That part of the story seems a bit too wishy washy for me. However, I am envious that the WSJ just let her leave her job there for as long as she needed. WTF!?!? I wish I had such luck.
