Book review

This Thing of Ours”
(How Faith Saved My Mafia Marriage.)

Cammy Franzese is a young woman making her start as a dancer and she meets this guy named, Michael. He is a producer, but it seems as though people believe that there is more to his life.
She doesn't understand. and they fall in love and get married. And it appears that they have an ideal lifestyle. When all of a sudden it seems as though there is more to his story than she thought.

This story is told through her view point and how she clearly needed Christ to help her understand what is going on. Because of her faith she remains devoted to her marriage even when she finds that her husband had a past and present of organized crime.

I found this book interesting in a way, Cammy was rather naive, marrying someone she really didn't know that much about.
But once she had committed to marriage, she stuck with it, raising her children and still visiting her husband in prison- often.
Because of her commitment to her husband, He saw Christ's love through her and also wanted to live a better life.

I didn't especially find it a fascinating read, as some of it seemed kinda like it was written with a candy coating. She seemed rather perfect, which could be true. And rather naive, which could also be true. But as an imperfect person I had a hard time believing it at times.

Would I recommend reading it? I really feel rather neutral about it.
