The Sicilian Woman’s Daughter: Four Generations of Mafia Women

sicilianThis book didn’t grab me completely and I put it down a few times.  I like the cover and sometimes that’s the eye candy that draws you to a book.

This is one of those multi-generational stories and you learn about the women’s role in the Mafia families.  One of the main characters is Mary and honestly, I didn’t care for her much.  Therefore, it was hard to read about her vengeful side and her actions. There were so many characters listed at the beginning of the book that I thought I may have trouble keeping them straight but that wasn’t ever a problem.

One the plus side there is much food mentioned, the kind I like too – rich pasta dishes and bread.

I received a complimentary digital copy of this book through NetGalley and was not compensated for my review.  I’m sorry I didn’t like it more and that’s probably why it took me so long to get through it and write a short review.

  1. I’m intrigued. I went through a big classic mafia phase where I read every biography on all the mobsters from the 1920s and 30s I could find and I’m still interested. I like the different perspective and that even with a bunch of characters it was difficult to keep up with who was who. And I’m all about the rich pasta dishes! I could live on those!

    • Katherine, I am surely a big fan of pasta. This book is available on Netgalley if you want to read it. I was just commenting to Mike above that we recently watched The Godfather. Liked it! Old movie, now I want to get the second one.
