For years Jim Delaney has been the neighborhood doctor for the down–and–out people of downtown Manhattan. But even as he cares for others‚ Delaney hides his private grief at the loss of his wife‚ Molly‚ who took a walk to the North River one day — and never came back. Then one day‚ a little boy appears at his doorstep during a blizzard. It's his three–year–old grandson Carlito‚ who has been left by his mother in Delaney's care. Delaney's life will never be the same — and that may be a good thing.

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.
