About the Book:

Attorney-turned-author/influencer Leigh Esposito’s debut novel The Godmother flips the typical all-male Mafia trope on its head by centering on a Sicilian American woman.

Raffi Truvarizzi leveraged her notorious Sicilian surname to become the Godmother, a fixer for women in need. Behind her enigmatic exterior, she is haunted by her mother’s disappearance and a lifelong question: is she or is she not related to the deadliest mafioso in history?

Against the lush backdrop of Sicily, The Godmother is an eclectic journey into the worlds of Sicilian legend, Mafia lore, jazz, tarot, witchcraft, and telenovelas—all within a story that celebrates the search for self and the healing magic of female friendships.
