A biography of the author’s great grandmother, Giovanna. The story of an Italian woman’s journey to Ll’America in 1908 to find closure in her husband’s death. The story provides a good picture of what it was like living in the immigrant sections of NYC. The Blackhand, extortion, immigrant’s fears, evil eye, etc. The author put together stories from her grandmother about her great grandmother, combined with research into life in NYC in the 1900s. Although a good feel for what life was like then and there, the story is choppy, outside of Giovanna characters aren’t developed leaving lots of loose ends about many of the key players. Could have been a lot better. ( )
