Conceived and edited by Danielle Mentzer, this book is written by many people. Unknown to each other, yet delicately connected by their stay at a small inn on the West Coast. On the pages of cloth-covered journals placed in each room by the innkeepers, the authors revealed thoughts and emotions usually uttered only to loved ones. These transient writers are neither poets, nor sages, nor comedians, although their words are rhythmic, wise and funny. They are ordinary people experiencing the joys and sorrows of life and love.
