Hfter nineteen years of marriage, two roaring decades as an investment banker, and forty-six years in the bustle of upper-crust Manhattan, Bill Schoenberg has lost it all. He has made a mistake, regrettable and unspeakable, and now finds himself fleeing to his newly purchased country house in Harristown, New York, with no plan and no ability to blend in with the locals and the foliage. His French-cuff shirts must be traded for flannel, his luxury apartment for the rural mini-mansion he bought for his wife; yet when he runs across the town's rag-tag volunteer firefighting company, he realizes he's stumbled onto the possibility of redemption.
As Bill sets about learning to knock down brush fires and pry free the victims of car accidents, he has the chance, for the first time in his halfhearted life, to save the day. But he is dogged by darker forces: pursued by his lawyer, loathed by his wife, and quite possibly stalked by an angry local vandal. Darkest of all may be his own secret, which is coming closer to the surface the longer he stays in Harristown.
Thoughtful and suspenseful, hugely entertaining and beautifully constructed, "The Golden Hour" is the story of one man's power to ruin and regain his life.
