Hamill, Pete Author

Image Not Available


One snowy New Year's Day, in the midst of the Great Depression, Dr. James Delaney--haunted by the slaughters of the Great War, and abandoned by his wife and daughter--returns home to find his three-year-old grandson on his doorstep, left by his mother in Delaney's care. Coping with this unexpected arrival, Delaney hires Rose, a tough, decent Sicilian woman with a secret in her past. Slowly, as Rose and the boy begin to care for the good doctor, the numbness in Delaney begins to melt. Recreating 1930s New York with the vibrancy and rich detail that are his trademarks, Pete Hamill weaves a story of honor, family, and one man's simple courage that no reader will soon forget.

From AudioFile:

Pete Hamills story of a disillusioned Depression-era doctor is notably enhanced by Henry Stroziers magnificent narration. Dr. Delaneys wife took a walk and never came home. Then his daughter abandoned her 3-year-old son, Carlito, on his doorstep. When a beautiful Sicilian woman, Rose, arrives to care for Carlito and becomes Delaneys lover, he suddenly has a family. Stroziers portrayal of Delaney is honest and mature, and you never doubt that Rose is a warm Sicilian woman. Stroziers Carlito is a sweet little boy, not an adult trying to sound like a little boy. This is an audiobook that shines as a masterful marriage of the written and spoken word. M.T.B.
