Sons of the Pope is a touching slice of life drama set in Brooklyn that spans multiple generations of families - both related and organized. Sal Salerno comes home from World War II to find his cousin Vito running with a new crowd. It's not really Sal's scene, but he's close with Vito. Through a series of events and out of sheer need, Sal winds up in the extended famiglia.
All the characters are richly drawn yet all ring true, as does the sparkling dialogue. Dan O'Connor vividly describes not only Sal's Brooklyn neighborhood where most of the story takes place but he also takes us on a profound journey to Lourdes, France in search of a miracle for Sal's boy, Joey. Brutality is amply described in a few key scenes, but the real heart and soul of the story is the Salerno family. This book is also an ode to respect with the clear message that in order to earn it, you must first respect yourself.
If you grew up in Brooklyn, you'll feel right at home with Sons of the Pope. If you weren't lucky enough to grow up in such a dynamic, conflicted world, O'Connor invites you inside to tell you a great story and by the end, you'll feel like a part of the family.
