About this product
- DescriptionGirl is seventeen, dirt-poor, exquisitely beautiful - a Cinderella whose Prince Charming is the Fordham-educated son of a Mafia King-Pin. Her fairy godmothers are a benign thief with a Mob price on his head, and a whorehouse madam who populates her bordello with Holly-would-be starlets. The story is set in the dynamic years of WWII yet features characters whose desires, fears and sensibilities are as modern as this morning's newspaper. Murder, damnation and redemption, life and love, are played out against the backdrop of a country united in war. Girl from JakesCann is the exciting, unpredictable saga of a dirt-poor young girl, unkwingly hunted for a fortune she doesn't kw she has by gangsters she has never heard of and how she affects all whom she encounters . . . even those who would kill her.
