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.

It is a place where people come to say hello and good-bye. And each person has a story to tell.
