From Hurt, Healing to Hope; Book review


5 star’s ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Last night after a long day, I started reading; From Hurt, Healing to Hope by Aigne Martin. I read it in on sitting that is raw for me to sit a read a whole book due to my health issues. From Hurt, Healing to Hope was a beautifully written poetry book about one young women’s hurting to overcoming the odds to healing, hope, and peace. This book had touched my heart. Being Depression Anxiety PTSD and Domestic Violence survive as well, this empowers me even more. A great book to go back and re-read on a down day. I just love one of the poems, that really speaks to my soul. Thank-You, Aigne for letting your words into this world.

Omerta Journey to the Past   

By Sasha Fino

            Victor Torino gazed at Adriane Rosenberg, inquisitively. “Don’t you ever wonder if we know the whole story between my dad and your mom?” he asked as they packed up her late father’s house. Charlie “Gus” Rosenberg, Adriane’s father, was a top Chicago mobster. The only survivor of a turbulent love triangle that shook the very foundations of the Mafia’s Las Vegas Empire. Much to their surprise, among her father’s belongings, Victor and Adriane discover her mother’s carefully preserved diary dating from the late 1970s and purposely left behind by her father for her to find. Thus begins a harrowing and heartwarming tale of undying love and devotion between Victor’s father, Tony Torino, the Mob Boss and King of Las Vegas, and Evelyn Rosenberg, Gus’s wife, a hustler, and onetime showgirl. Through the vivid and brilliant use of flashbacks, juxtaposed with current events, we witness Tony and Evelyn’s insatiable love pitted against the violent and unforgiving life and the law of the Mafia. As Victor, a forest ranger who wants nothing to do with the Mafia and Adriane, an attorney being pressured to work for the Mafia. Reading through the diary, old hatreds and new alliances rise to leave us to wonder if history will repeat itself.

            Omerta; Journey to the Past is a fresh twist on the contemporary romance genre. I wanted to write a story that tells hows a mafia boss and showgirl/hustler Tony and Evelyn. Finding true love within each other and how their love would survive the challenge of the harsh world of the Mafia. Years later, their love affair was rehashing when Evelyn’s ex-husband dies. Leaving all the pieces to Evelyn’s daughter Adriane and Tony’s son Victor to piece together. Adriane and Victor have their own past to deal with the pressure of Mafia upon them. It was a joy to write with so many twists and turns in the storyline. You may think some of this story you have heard before. In fact, you have.

     Living in Las Vegas, Nevada, I had grown up with all of the stories from family and friends about how the mafia kings and queens were living the high life. Before greed, envy destroyed them from within.  As I started to dig into my city’s past, I became fascinated with the affair between Tony Spilotro and Geri Rosenthal. It had started me thinking, what if they were star-crossed lovers? How would it turn out?

            I was very intrigued by Tony Spilotro’s reign as the Las Vegas Mafia boss. He had it all, running the Crime underworld, corrupt cops, hit contracts and such, Money, and Sex. Then when he could have any woman he wants in Las Vegas. Yet Tony became romantically involved with a mob associate and a childhood friend Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal’s wife, Geri Rosenthal. That was one of the main no-nos to sleep with another man’s wife in the Mafia.   

 This was all at the back of my mind since I was working on another project at the time. One night I was bored, decided to try my hand at writing a Fanfiction to the 1995 movie Casino–a short story on my interpretation of the Nicky and Ginger’s affair.  Then I thought to take it forward a generation and let their children (Ginger’s daughter and Nicky’s son) sift through the intrigue that colored their parents’ lives. I called it, Journey to the Past: A Casino Fanfiction (That’s not up anymore)

    I was spending all of my time researching and writing this Fanfiction. All of my family and friends, even Frank Cuttolla just loved the story.  By then, I had three chapters on Fanfiction and a fourth chapter ready to go.  My family felt it should continue in book form, so I did continue writing it until I was happy with it.  What a fabulous experience this has been!  It is a marvelous journey that continues! Thank You, Uncle Frank, for your help with this book. May you find peace.

 `·. Cerebral Palsy Gal_ A Novella is now .99 cents ★°*゚

(͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Amanda was born with cerebral palsy (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

http://bit.ly/cpgal99cents ꧂                                 


How do you move forward when the past is holding you back? When the abuse from the past affects life choices in the present? Cerebral Palsy Gal is the riveting story of one woman’s quest to come to terms with her health, heartbreak, and family.
Amanda was born with cerebral palsy. Throughout her life, she struggled against seemingly overwhelming odds to follow her dream – to be a best-selling writer. As a child, she endured appalling physical, mental, and emotional abuse from members of her own family, especially her mother, who could not accept Amanda’s condition. When her father was only fifty-nine, he died of cancer. She found comfort and solace with her grandmother – her “gragwa” as she called her – the only person in her childhood who cared for her. A chance meeting with a former U.S. intelligence officer and his family at a convention in Las Vegas gave Amanda the chance to be part of a loving family she so dearly craved.
CP Gal is the remarkable story of survival against the odds, a poignant, inspiring, and utterly compelling account of one person finding her own voice and, in turn, becoming the voice of those who, through disability, cannot speak for themselves.

A letter to you


Dear fellow Cerebral Palsy Advocate,

My name is Amanda Fino. I’m thrilled and excited to say that my new book, CP Gal, is coming out on December 15, 2019. In it, I wrote the real hardships that I have endured growing up with cerebral palsy. I found my own voice in the hopes of becoming the voice for those who, through disability, cannot speak for themselves. Coming out from my beloved book publishing company, Blue Fortune Enterprises, LLC, on December 15, 2019. My dream is to have it on Amazon’s bestseller list in its first week. I’m looking for help to spread the word. Writing my autobiography was very therapeutic. It allowed me to express myself, my truth. https://www.facebook.com/events/768447166901838/

I feel like there needs to be a book on adult matters of a full-flesh woman that has Cerebral Palsy — expressing my deep inner emotions within myself. Having a unique personal outlook on life, I admit that I made a lot of horrible mistakes on my behalf, and I own up to ALL of them. In hopes for other young people that has Cerebral Palsy not to make the same mistake as I did.

In honor of CP Gal, I invite all of you to share this in hopes of spreading disability awareness. Your help is needed for those who suffer from Cerebral Palsy and other Maladies. Let’s make a movement in history. Please take a second to sign this petition. http://chng.it/b6VmsmvLdJ

Thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to read this.

Amanda Fino
