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.
