The Heart of Yonkers is the second book in the Yonkers Series.
From the edge of the Hudson River, we travel with fifteen-year-old Cookie Colangelo into The Heart of Yonkers. Cookie desperately wants a boyfriend but will not settle for a dumb Yonkers guy. Then she meets Stanley de Falco and falls hard. This Vietnam War Vet has recently returned home. Stanley is vulnerable and trying to come to terms with his own humanity. While Cookie does everything in her power to seduce him, her age is an obstacle to consummating the relationship. Throughout this story, the presence of the river is a brilliant metaphor providing context for unforgettable characters.
