Cambridge Street is the story of the bravery of immigrants who came to America a century ago as seen through the eyes of a fictional family.
Forced by poverty and the Mafia to leave the farm and the country they love, the Tomasos split their family and send their three sons to the New World.
Violent gangsters and crooked cops run the streets in Chicago's Roaring 20s.
Jobs are scarce and tenement life is tough. Immigrants had to learn to be tougher. Only their love of family and of God held them together.
When an act of stunning violence is committed against the Tomasos by their own countrymen, they must decide what to do. Their actions will determine who they are as people and who their children will become.

About the Author: Steven Decker grew up in a large, thriving Sicilian family on the north side of Chicago. He never forgot the family stories about the struggles of his immigrant grandparents: how they survived terrible poverty, life during Prohibition and their encounters with gangsters. He has woven many of those true events into an exciting fictional tale spanning a half century.
“Cambridge Street is for the millions of immigrants from Italy and the world that came to America to give their families better lives,” said Decker. “They helped build our country, feed its people and fight its wars. Now, with the passing of years, their bravery and sacrifices are being forgotten. We must not let that happen.”
