In reading this collection of stories, I discovered that Rosenwasser has written for the New York Times. And that's the caliber of writing you can expect when losing yourself in these heart-warming stories.

Rosenwasser takes readers back to the magic of growing up in Manhasset, Long Island before it was taken over by the rich and famous. From Christmas in Manhasset (imagine Santa arriving by helicopter each year to visit with children at the local department store) to family outings at the local beach, these stories will leave you longing for a more simple time - before smart phones, computers, video games and social media took over our lives. There's also a surprise recipe for the coveted popovers served at the much-loved Patricia Murphy's Candlelight Inn Restaurant. I HIGHLY recommend this book. It's the perfect gift book, and one that can sit on your coffee table and be enjoyed for years to come. ( )

These are the stories of a small town that grew up alongside the Baby Boomers who roamed its streets and wrote their own legends upon them. They are stories about the birthrights, beaches and bars of a few lucky generations.
