Overview

On the surface, Rita Gigante’s family looked like all the other Italian Catholics in her suburban New Jersey neighborhood. But behind closed doors, they had a secret—her father was notorious crime boss Vincent “the Chin” Gigante, head of all five New York crime families. In The Godfather’s Daughter, Rita takes us on her emotional and spiritual journey growing up on the tumultuous fringes of the underworld. Her struggles with deception and honesty, violence and love, and sickness and healing finally lead Rita up to a world of light—and a life where she can finally accept and bravely live her own truth.

This was one of the best books I ever read. I have known this family since childhood.I would have never guessed the youngest one would would have been the one that touched my heart in so many ways. The book is truly an example of what life can be . God Bless you Rita I am proud to be your friend. Good Luck.

This book "The Godfathers Daughter" was a Amazing read! The Authors take is one of strength, honesty , healing and loving care. This true story made me laugh, smile and tear all in one chapter! This book is undoubtedly one of the best reads I've encountered in a long long time. This book looks like a mob orientated book but its not. In my opinion the Author had to opened up her heart and must have found it very difficult to write this book. THIS BOOK LEFT ME ENLIGHTENED. Its a must read!!!

This book is not what I thought it would be. I gave up on it and went on to something more interesting. Maybe I will go back to it another time.
