Professional reviews

"Pete Hamill's story of a disillusioned Depression-era doctor is notably enhanced by Henry Strozier's magnificent narration. Dr. Delaney's 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 Delaney's lover, he suddenly has a family. Strozier's portrayal of Delaney is honest and mature, and you never doubt that Rose is a warm Sicilian woman. Strozier's 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. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
