Publisher's Summary

"An engrossingly honest insider's tale of the part of Al Capone's life that mattered most to him, life with his wife, son, and four granddaughters. Diane Patricia Capone, the granddaughter who was with him almost every day throughout his final years, has supplemented her childhood memories with many previously unknown revelations told to her as an adult by her father and grandmother, Al's beloved wife, Mae, and with her readings in the extensive private diaries kept by her own mother, Diana Casey Capone. It is a fascinating tale, and must-read for anyone who wishes to understand the complex life of the legendary American icon who was Al Capone." (Deirdre Bair, National Book Award recipient, author of Al Capone: His Life, Legacy, and Legend)

"This is an important, heartfelt story, told honestly and solidly organized around the lives of Alphonse Capone, his wife, and his direct descendants. It answers a number of major historical questions and has a credibility which readers will immediately recognize because it is written by Al Capone's granddaughter Diane. It is based on what her grandmother, Mae Capone, told her in many conversations they had over the years, and it is supported by various documents in the family's possession, other evidence (including DNA tests), and personal photos. As much as this book needed to be written, it needs to be read. It is the first of its kind—a factual account of Al Capone's personal life by one of his relatives." (John J. Binder, author of Al Capone's Beer Wars and The Chicago Outfit)

For the first time, the true stories of Al Capone's private life written by his granddaughter, Diane Patricia Capone. Now living with her husband in the Sierra Foothills of North California, Diane is sharing her grandparent's story. After a lifetime of keeping quiet about their private lives, she shares about passion, betrayal, heartbreak and ultimately, hope, forgiveness, and a love that never died.
