Seasons in Sanctuary

Friends of the book say:

"Lopriore has terrific understanding of what makes a good story. He can write like hell, but he's even better at digging up stuff nobody else knows. Should have been a CIA guy instead of a reporter."

Maury Allen, longtime New York Post sportswriter, author of "Brooklyn Remembered","Where Have You Gone

Overview

Seasons in Sanctuary

Friends of the book say:

"Lopriore has terrific understanding of what makes a good story. He can write like hell, but he's even better at digging up stuff nobody else knows. Should have been a CIA guy instead of a reporter."

Maury Allen, longtime New York Post sportswriter, author of "Brooklyn Remembered","Where Have You Gone (Joe DiMaggio)".

"With "Season in Sanctuary", Danny Lopriore not only conveys a remarkable true story of personal faith and redemption, but he's also beautifully crafted a love letter to a special place in time. With rich detail, he recreates the experience of growing up in the 1970s working-class, school-of-hard-knocks outskirts of the greatest city in the world. You can practically smell the bread baking over New York's Arthur Avenue with every turn of the page."

Scott Williams, writer/producer, "Without a Trace", "Bones", "Third Watch".

"Lopriore is able to come from a very real and true place. He puts you right into the life of this complex man. His unique take on this drama is a credit not only to his writing style, but to his commitment to telling this story with a passion that comes from witnessing a story first hand. The story could not be told better by anyone."

Jason Cerbone, actor, "The Sopranos"

"A gripping narrative with fascinating characters. The details of time and place are so vivid and compelling that one has to be reminded that this is fiction and not true story. The author reels you in and doesn't let go until the novel's powerful conclusion.

Angelo Pizzo, screenwriter/producer, "Hoosiers", "Rudy"

Unusually written -- first-person approach to a story. Loved the background and description of old neighborhoods, childhood flashbacks and game action.

If this is at least half true -- it's a book that could help change lives -- the story proves we should use our talents no matter what.

I thought 'Seasons' was a uniquely written book -- unlike like most sports books it has human insight. The story is exciting and touching -- about a gangster type who goes through a life-changing experience.

Danny Lopriore has written a wonderful book, combining a story about the good/bad within us all. Very nostalgic for those of us that grew up in that era and in the Yonkers area.I hope to read more from this author !!

I found Seasons in Sanctuary to be a very interesting and quick read -- a book anyone might want to read on a long weekend or trip. It is an exciting account of a messed up guy who has a gift and gets to use it after years of failure. I think teens will love this book.

Shows that a person can still chase his dreams even with making many wrong choices on how to live. Finding what makes you feel alive can lead to a re-evaluation of your life which can help you overcome heartbreak and the choices you have made. Truly great book with a lot of inspiration. Recommended to both sports lovers and to people who need a lift.

This book could be one of the most interesting reads I've experienced -- not because it is great writing persay -- but because it is so real in it's dialog and descriptions of life in NYC in the 1970s and smacks of the author's intimate knowledge of the subject. Seasons in Sanctuary would make a great movie.

This book relates the desire of a man to find his true heart after having made too many wrong choices. It gives us all hope that we have a calling and we can only be happy when we find who we are.
