Not A Dawn In Eastern Skies is a modern love story surrounded by the disillusionment, disenchantment, and contagious alienation brought on by the era of the Viet Nam War and with the assassinations of America’s beloved leaders which shattered the dreams of a young generation whose loss of innocence symbolizes the 1960s.
From a small village on the shores of Lake Michigan to the quaint and time forgotten villages of Old Mexico, this story will take readers on a journey surrounded by perfect love and heartbreaking beauty in a world that never promises happiness.
Not A Dawn In Eastern Skies should be considered a novella or a very short novel with twenty-four short stories around a central theme. Speaking of his writing, poet and author Patrick Guinan has said, “I have tried to say a few things about love and life and to express these thoughts as simply and honestly as I know how.”
In his mid sixties, Patrick Guinan is still a young writer who has found his voice and uses it to tell about love and what living does to it.Growing up in small towns in Michigan and Illinois, the father of two grown children, Guinan spent almost forty years teaching in Florida with brief stints as a politician and sports broadcaster. He now spends his time between his winter home in Bradenton, Florida, and his summer cottage by Northport Bay in the lovely woods of Northern Michigan where he learned about dreams and young love.
