The Godfather’s Daughter

An Unlikely Story of Love, Healing, and Redemption

by Rita Gigante with Natasha Stoynoff

On the surface, Rita Gigante's family looked like all the other Italian Catholics in her suburban New Jersey neighborhood. But behind closed doors, they had a secret-her father was notorious crime boss Vincent "the Chin" Gigante, head of all five New York crime families. In The Godfather's Daughter, Rita takes us on her emotional and spiritual journey growing up on the tumultuous fringes of the underworld. Her struggles with deception and honesty, violence and love, and sickness and healing finally lead Rita up to a world of light-and a life where she can finally accept and bravely live her own truth.
