At the bar of a grand hotel in a small Irish town sits eighty-four-year-old Maurice Hannigan. He’s alone, as usual—though tonight is anything but. Pull up a stool and charge your glass, because Maurice is finally ready to tell his story.
Over the course of the evening, he will raise five toasts to the five people who have meant the most to him. Though these stories—of unspoken joy and regret, a secret tragedy kept hidden, a fierce love that never found its voice—the life of one man will be powerfully and poignantly laid bare. Beautifully heartwarming and deeply felt, the voice of Maurice Hannigan will stay with you long after all is said and done.
