Book Reviews
This is a great story that takes a span of over fifty years and it proudly carries the depth and the breadth of such a long period. Steven Trimboli is a Catholic priest, but nevertheless imperfect human being. Yet, if a priest can ever be perfect in his imperfection, that would be this dynamic and highly likable persona. Do the church and the mafia have something in common? When they pair by evil, they most certainly do, but Steven Trimboli is not the one who likes keeping it quiet. That is one of his most remarkable qualities - he is brazen and outspoken and speaks with an honesty that has an almost childlike innocence. Indeed, that makes him a thorn in the eyes of the powerful church people like Barillo and a toy in the hands of the mafia. I found myself cheering for Trimboli and wishing to see more people like him - someone who, for chrissakes, speaks when he needs to! However, he is also torn by his own life’s sins and decisions and this is how his life has an unexpected turn, as he becomes a father and finds surprising love. I loved the characters. They are alive, well-portrayed and carry the action with vigor. Just as Steven is an almost naive justice-seeker, so is Barillo cold-blooded and vicious, the mobster Tony La Marca is not delusional about how will his life end, and Rosalie is a vehement survivor who will engage all her powers when necessary. I loved this beautiful story of life, love and justice - grab it!
