Godfather's Daughter

Rita Gigante grew up in a world swirling with secrets, lies, and multiple sins.Her father, notorious Mafia boss Vincent ",the Chin", Gigante, was the leader of the Genovese crime clan and the head of all five New York crime families for decades. But until she was 16, she was kept in the dark about his underworld activities. She unknowingly hung out at mob headquarters and witnessed her dad's whispered meetings around the dinner table, but only knew what she was told by her mother and siblings about his odd behavior: Dad's sick. Keep your mouth shut. Don't talk about the family.Living with the family secret-and other shocking betrayals she was to uncover, then instructed to conceal-plunged Rita into emotional and physical turmoil for years. And then there was the blockbuster secret she herself kept hidden away: As the youngest girl in an old-fashioned, devout Catholic family, how could she confess to the unforgiving Godfather that she was a lesbian? They were all going to hell, she figured . . . unless she could find a way to embrace the truth and find redemption.In The Godfather's Daughter, Rita details her spiritual journey as she unravels the mysteries of her family and herself, and learns what it means to live in the truth she finds. It's a real-life father-daughter tale of betrayal and faith, violence and love-and how a young woman escaped from a spiraling darkness to reach the light.And in the end, with his daughter's healing help, even the Godfather finally learns to live in the light and atone for his sins.
