North River : It is 1934, and New York City is in the icy grip of the Great Depression. Dr. James Delaney tends to his hurt, sick, and poor neighbors - gangsters and Tammany chieftains, veterans and prostitutes - with enormous compassion. But privately, Delaney's heart is frozen; he is haunted by the slaughters of the Great War and the departures of his wife and grown daughter. Then, on a snowy New Year's Day, the doctor finds his three-year-old grandson on his doorstep. To cope with this unexpected arrival, Delaney enlists the help of Rose, a tough, decent Sicilian woman with a secret in her past. As Rose and the boy begin to infuse the good doctor's home with new life, the numbness in Delaney slowly begins to melt. Re-creating 1930s New York with vibrancy and rich detail, Pete Hamilll weaves a story of honor, family, and one man's simple courage that readers will not soon forget.
