It is 1961. Times are uncertain around the world – the tension of the Cold War has been building for years, and the tragic conflict of the Vietnam War has just started. At the US Army base in Mannheim, Germany, soldiers have been in constant preparation for war. The Berlin Wall has just gone up; the Bay of Pigs crisis is in full swing. While conventional war would be bad enough, the threat of nuclear war is continual. Stress levels are high, and there is a pervasive sense that time may be short-too short.
A young American soldier goes on leave to Dublin, after one year in Mannheim, and on the enchanted Emerald Isle he finds a gift he couldn't have imagined. At the Sea Point Ballroom, he meets Mary, a beautiful and independent woman – a commercial artist, who shares a dance with the young soldier. But that dance leads to so much more-in each other's arms they waltz out the back door and surrender to the beauty of the moonlit Galway Bay. This adventurous pair embraces all that life has to offer during dangerous times and the eighteen days they shared in a Galway romance. 54 pages in length, Galway Romance: A Holiday Romance is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the autobiography and personal memoirs category.

About the author:
Thomas O'Hare grew up surrounded by history and interesting people – he was born
in a three hundred year old Dutch farmhouse where George Washington may have
slept during the Battle of Long Island, and he shared high school science and English
classes at Erasmus Hall High with Barbra Streisand. Always a rebel, former Lord of
Flatbush O'Hare left school to join the Army. He was stationed close to Elvis Presley
and also his friend Hugh Murphy. Galway Romance is inspired by the memories of
those happy and traumatic days.
