You will wish you could be part of the story. Real characters, situations that make you feel like you have truly found a second home.

My grandfather is always giving me books he wants me to read, too many for me to actually read them all in a timely manner. Most of the books are mysteries and some are other genres that aren't necessarily my taste. So, when he gave me this book I wasn't sure what to expect, it looked like it might be interesting, but it still took me a few months to actually get around to reading it. I am so unbelievably glad that I did. It is now one of my all time favorite books. I am so grateful to my Pop Pop for introducing this book to me, for I highly doubt that I would have ever come across it on my own. I am also thankful to Gwendolyn Bounds for giving my grandfather and I a touching, humorous, and amazing book to discuss.

Awww, I loved this book. I'm sorry that the Little Chapel has since closed, but what a nice story.

This is thoughtful and engaging story appropriate for anyone. If you live in or are familiar with the Hudson Valley it is particularly poignant. If you are lucky enough to have ever been to Guinan's Pub as I was, it is an absolute must.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, felt like I was right there in the bar with everybody and part of the family. A touching yet also humorous look at the way we create families for ourselves when we need them, and the way men and women who have known each other for years are there for each other when the need arises. The book takes us from the chaos and horror of 9/11 to the (usually) peaceful sanctuary of the small town pub.

From the very beginning, I felt as if I was there with the author as her experiences unfolded. The Guinans story made me think about what's important in life. From the author's personal description you could vividly see and hear each person. This was an extremely emotional story for me, as it portrayed both family and community love and sacrifice. It 'called' for me to visit this little chapel. How disappointed I was when I found that the Chapel had since closed.

I adored every minute of this engaging book of an assorted group of people who shared their lives (and a few beers!)with each other. Heartwarming view of a little community who made the world a better place.

Little Chapel on the River is a wonderful read,a book that made me think about people, community,and place.I loved the way, the author revealed how she changed and grew in an unlikely place, after 9/11.The story of loyality, friendship, growth, and humor touched my heart, and not in a sappy way.Will recommend this book to many.

I found this book magical. It was so beautifully written and created such a warm picture of this community and how to find meaning in your own life and place. I struggled since 9/11 to read or watch anything about the event, because it was so hard to think about. However, this memoir changed that for me.

What fun to think that I was purchasing a book about a pub, when actually, I was purchasing a book about a person's thought processes regarding her life change after 911. It was also very interesting to read the various tidbits of historical information about West Point and the Hudson River area, and the author paints nice word pictures with her writing. I really was surprised by the content of the book, and I really enjoyed the read too.

This book is breathtaking and a wonderful gift since I have known the Guinan's since the late 60's - their 'store' was my home away from home and have such great memories of our times together with Margaret, Christine, Jimmy and John. The author certainly describes the place to a T!! A wonderful book that will be enjoyed by all....
