Ten bestselling authors inspired by New York City's iconic Grand Central Terminal have created their own stories, set on the same day, just after the end of World War II, in a time of hope, uncertainty, change, and renewal....

A war bride awaits the arrival of her GI husband at the platform...A Holocaust survivor works at the Oyster Bar, where a customer reminds him of his late mother...A Hollywood hopeful anticipates her first screen test and a chance at stardom in the Kissing Room...

On any particular day, thousands upon thousands of people pass through Grand Central, through the whispering gallery, beneath the ceiling of stars, and past the information booth and its beckoning four-faced clock, to whatever destination is calling them. It is a place where people come to say hello and good-bye. And each person has a story to tell.

Featuring stories from Melanie Benjamin, Jenna Blum, Amanda Hodgkinson, Pam Jenoff, Sarah Jio, Sarah McCoy, Kristina McMorris, Alyson Richman, Erika Robuck, and Karen White

Each story held it's own and was a piece of WW2 that one was probably not aware of. Great authors, inspiring heroes and heroines.

I picked this book up thinking that the stories in it would be light and full of hope. I was sadly disappointed. I found many of the stories dark and, at times, struggled to get through them. I kept reading thinking that they would get better but they didn't.

While I would call these thought provoking and, at times, informative, the description and the book its self are very different.
