14 // WE WERE THE LUCKY ONES // “There is nothing worse, not even the daily hell of the ghetto, than for a mother to live with such fear and uncertainty about the fates of her children.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #weweretheluckyones #jessicareads2019
This was just lovely. Hunter's story of researching her family's experience during WWII was fascinating . . . so I put the book on hold. I'm so glad I did! Hunter alternates the chapters' points of view, telling the stories of her grandfather, his siblings, and her great-grandparents beautifully. She never falls into easy sentimentality, but I was emotionally and intellectually engaged throughout. Just beautiful!
I had a helper yesterday at my Costco signing 💙
Next stop San Diego/San Francisco - come join me at one of my events if you live nearby!
