Brooklyn Roses, the third and final installment of The El Trilogy, follows the travails and triumphs of that loud, loving Italian-American family from Borough Park.

It weaves an unforgettable tale that encompasses forbidden love, illicit crime, joyous celebrations, heartbreaking tragedies-and the intricacies of life itself. Are we destined to repeat the sins of our fathers or forge a different road? It's all there-beloved new characters, tried-and-true favorites and that captivating combination of folklore, food and family that's become a Gigante-Brown trademark.
