Product Description

Product Description

Based on true events, Elizabeth Street is a multigenerational saga that opens in an Italian village in the 1900's, and crosses the ocean to New York's Lower East Side. At the heart of the novel is Giovanna, whose family is targeted by the notorious Black Hand -the precursor to the Mafia. Elizabeth Street brings to light a period in history when Italian immigrant neighborhoods lived in fear of Black Hand extortion and violence-a reality that defies the romanticized depiction of the Mafia. Here, the author reveals the merciless terror of the Black Hand-and the impact their crimes had on her family. Giovanna is based on Fabiano's great-grandmother, and the book's heroes and villains - such as Lieutenant Petrosino, the crusading cop and "Lupo the Wolf," a cold-blooded criminal - are drawn from real life in this thrilling tale. While set in a dynamic historical context, Elizabeth Street is, above all, the dramatic story of the heroine, Giovanna, and how she triumphed over tragedy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Elizabeth Street by Laurie Fabiano Dec 10 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
i gave it four stars but would have given four and a half if i knew how to get the half - because it was just a little repetitive in some parts. well stated, message got across but repeated the same thing many times. other than that it was captivating, spell-binding story telling; at times i found myself in the very places described and had to shake myself back to reality. i cold feel, taste, smell, endure the situations described, which took me back to the days of my parents and grandparents altho' in their case, the immigration was to Canada. loved this book and look forward to reading other books by Laurie Fabiano.

Interesting story. I found it to be entertaining but rather predictable. Light reading if you don't want to tax your brain.

Once you start, you can't put it down. This story is eye opening as to what early newcomers went through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprise March 11 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book and read it, enjoyed it, thinking it was fiction, only to discover it was a family's story about immigrating. The fears, heartbreaks, and success' are well documented, as are the understanding of the personalities of the family members, their strength and weaknesses. I like history and the fact that this turned out to be nonfiction was a bonus.

Historical and a good life story with all the hardship of early immigrants to a country just beginning its own life. The bonds of families and the unsafe labor practices of a booming society.
