Liz and Jack Sutherland were a couple who seemed to have everything. Not only to outsiders, but also in reality; they lived and breathed the American Dream: a loving marriage, healthy, well-adjusted children, and a successful legal partnership. Living, loving, and working side by side made their lives complete and fulfilled. Steel (The Long Road Home) has created a moving novel about tragedy in the middle of life and how Liz finds the strength to go on without her husband after a tragic accident on Christmas Day. Faced with five children and only the little blessings to propel her forward, she regains control of her new life with increasing depth and perspective. The House on Hope Street is about the human spirit learning to live again by recognizing the smallest blessings and finding and believing in hope. The audio quality is excellent, and Joseph Siravo's warm tone effectively lends itself to the story's drama. Recommended for popular fiction collections.
