Set in New York’s Little Italy in the 1950’s, this character-driven drama is mysterious and sensual. It weaves lies with love, treachery with truth, and explores the ultimate meaning of moral fortitude, honesty, passion, and loyalty.
The story incorporates contemporary pleasures: a love story, spice, family secrets, and crime investigation. But its underlying message is one of moral choices. It also gives a historic glimpse of the 50s. Readers will find themselves on a nostalgic journey back to the postwar time of economic growth.
This work does not glorify the mob like so many others have done. It is a saga that talks to the plight of Italian American immigrants striving for a living in the new world under the thumbs of the mafia.
Katherine Burdino, The feisty daughter of a Little Italy pharmacist learns of ominous family secrets… As a first generation college-educated woman of Italian descent,
Katherine was considered a rarity by those of her time. Society at large and her own Italian-American community held her up with great esteem, but Katherine’s idyllic and fruitful life was on the brink of cascading beneath her…
Shattered by her discovery of the lies and treachery that stir her very existence, she finds herself under threat from the New York Mob, not only risking her life but her chance for truelove...
She learns of criminal alliances with close family friends, some of whom are cold-blooded killers. Her questions lead her into the dark side of life with the unfolding of secrets, in a story that cuts to the core of the struggle of good versus evil.
With her new knowledge, Katherine’s mission is to protect those she loves, account to society, and more importantly reveal to the love of her life, Kevin, this deep and most shameful secret, fully knowing that she could lose him and her chance for real happiness...
