Veteran NY cop, Rick Cooper, heads to his family's lake house after losing a hostage negotiation, resulting in the death of a child. He brings only his dog and his saxophone for company. His agenda includes lots of fishing while he figures out an appropriate career change. Single mom, Kristin McCarthy hears the sound of the saxophone gliding through the night air...a healing sound for her daughter. She begins a search for the person who can play so beautifully. Her high hopes fall, however, when the musician turns out to be a cop. The police fell short when she and Ashley needed them most. But still...if this cop could make a difference...if he can help Ashley...well, Kristin would do anything for her young daughter. An attractive widow with a damaged kid are the last people Rick needs in his life, and he tried hard to remain aloof. The ladies, however, knock down his barriers simply by being themselves.

"This book is an in-depth analysis of three of the most crucial years in twentieth-century Italian history, the years 1943-46. After more than two decades of a Fascist regime and a disastrous war experience during which Italy changed sides, these years saw the laying of the political and cultural foundations for what has since become known as Italy's First Republic. Drawing on texts from the literature, film, journalism, and political debate of the period, Antifascisms offers a thorough survey of the personalities and positions that informed the decisions taken in this crucial phase of modern Italian history."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
