About this title


Imagine living next door to the famous Bonnano crime family or being held hostage by a gangster during a shoot-out or hiding Al Capones guns in your shoeshine box! This story lets you enter a world where extraordinary circumstances were merely everyday events. The Finazzo family traveled from Sicily to America in search of the fabled 'American Dream,' only to find poverty, tragedies, prison, death, and even murder. It was the era of prohibition, speakeasies, and later The Great Depression...gangsters, racketeers, and the mafia that corrupted the neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York, where they migrated. This true story tells how each family member was affected by this extraordinary environment. Rosie leads you through her many heart-wrenching, yet sometimes, hilarious, adventures as she struggles to survive on the streets of Brooklyn. At age ten her character is hardened by poverty, murder, death, hunger, and the sound of screams from her mother's pain as she suffers with cancer. Rosie steals to eat, cusses, smokes and boxes.

From the Author:

This novel will fill the audience with the gamut of human emotion and will be long remembered after reading (or viewing) the story. I believe this is a powerful story that will steal your heart. Because it involved my family, this story is written with my heart.

Ever since I could remember, my mother Rose had told me stories of her childhood in Brooklyn, and I always felt she had a story to tell the world. A story about a little girl who faced homogeneous hardships. Throughout the years Rose talked of writing a book, a book that eventually she and I were striving to write but never accomplished because of her deteriorating health and early death. So now I feel compelled to tell her story, as she told it to me, word for word, so we all can remember, a place, a time in history, of lost family traditions.
