From the Publisher:

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.||
Tending to his poor and sick neighbors throughout a Depression-era winter, New York City doctor James Delaney is haunted by memories from World War I and the disappearances of his wife and daughter, until his three-year-old grandson is abandoned on his doorstep.
Annotation:
The year is 1934 and New York City is locked in the icy grip of the great depression. Amid the hunger and suffering, Dr. James Delaney tends to the needy, mobsters and housewives alike. However, Delaney himself is suffering from the heartache of his wife's abandoning him and from the horrors he witnessed during the Great War. When his daughter leaves her two-year-old son on his doorstep, Delaney recruits Rose, a Sicilian maid, to help raise the child. Pete Hamill's atmospheric and lovely novel recreates a period of terrible hardship and shows how human decency survives despite the brutality.
