A handsome Italian film producer and a beautiful Mexican dancer... A match made on a movie set and a lavish Beverly Hills wedding. The beginning of Camille Franzese’s story takes on the shade of an exotic fairy tale. But a closer look at her marriage to mafia capo Michael Franzese exposes more than a decade of anguish endured in the shadows of her husband’s crimes. The fear of arrest, the prison sentences, the house raids from federal agents—Camille lived through it all, not knowing whether her family could remain unbroken amid the turmoil and uncertainty that accompanied her husband’s life of crime. Discover how Camille’s devotion to her marriage and her faith in God’s larger plan led to deliverance from devastation. Hers is a story of choices, consequences, and the prayers that hold us up when everything around us is falling down.
Jodi4 Stars Out Of 5This Thing of Ours: How Faith Saved My Mafia MarriDecember 27, 2011JodiQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 4I had a very hard time putting this book down. I found Cammy's faith to be very inspiring, and her patience through all that she went through her whole life made me really come to admire this woman.
This Thing of Ours: How Faith Saved My Mafia Marriage is about a small-town girl Cammy Franzese who didn't plan to marry one of the most powerful mob bosses in the country. She didn't expect to raise her children alone while her husband Michael served hard time. And she certainly didn't anticipate what would happen when he finally made the stunning decision to turn his back on "the life" and become a devout Christian. Cammy expresses the details of her painful and joyful journey, for instance how as a Christian, she met and married Michael
when he was an unbeliever and a high-profile mobster. The high life she lived in their first year of marriage when she had more money than she knew what to do with. What it was like being under law-enforcement scrutiny, dealing with death threats, harassment from the FBI, and having to move several times to protect their family. And how she stayed faithful to Michael and raised their children on her own while he was locked up for eight years.
You will find out why Cammy stayed in a marriage loaded with so much heartache and struggle. With painful honesty, she speaks about restoration, miracles, and the confidence we can have knowing God prepares us for the challenges and obstacles we will one day have to face.
I thought this book was a great and interesting read. I would recommend this book for those of us that have made poor relationship choices and would like to hear of a redemptive story that just may inspire you or someone you know.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program.
