Publisher's Summary

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.

Great story, bad reader

It’s a great story, fantastic behind the scenes look at a mob wife’s life. Her reading though had much to be desired of. Many times it was like hearing a monotone version of my sister fast reading a passage. A little more effort on performance would have been greatly appreciated.

love this book

Cammy is a woman to be respected. I love when women stick by their men in difficult situations as long as they make the needed changes. so happy for her that Michael did. what a fantastic read. I married a tough guy too. so it's encouraging to know others have endured sad situations. we are both Christians now as we are Jehovahs Witnesses and our faith in a better world to come keeps us going. faith in God is a beautiful thing to see in other families as well. thanks for sharing Camille.

This Thing Of Ours, is a amazing story of God’s divine plan and intervention, in Michael and Cammy Franzes lives. It’s a story of hope, love, forgiveness, and God’s amazing grace! It’s also a story of a mother’s love, for her daughter, and unwavering faith in God! Mrs. Garcia’s relentless faith- filled prayers, are the catalyst for God’s miraculous transformation, in Michael Franzes life! Last but not least, Michael and Cammy’s love for each other is absolutely, no small thing! “ Love covers a multitude of sin”!

The Woman behind the Man

I’ve always been fascinated with Mafia movies, the way of life they lived, the historic significance and the psychological toll it brought to the men and ultimately the families that were affected by it. I’ve listened to a lot of Michael Franzese’s story. And I would hear a little bit about Camille from time to time. So when I was browsing audible for a great mob story I came across her book. It was well documented. As every mother can relate to I felt her pain and struggles and her sometimes wavering strength in Christ. She is a heroine. And it is proof time and time again how much resilience the woman behind the great man has.

A Beautiful Story!

Cammy and Michael’s story is a testament that no matter the difficulties or the obstacles that one is confronted with in life anything can be accomplished. Through their faith, persistence and the love that they had for one another Cammy and Michael have given me hope for the future. I hope you are as touched as I was when listening to this book...
