From the Publisher
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 abandoning him and from the horrors he witnessed during the Great War. When his daughter abandons her two-year-old son on his doorstep, he 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.
