When Lucky Us was published in hardcover I chose it as my staff pick and few of you trusted me enough to purchase it, so now with the publication of the paperback edition I am giving you a second chance. The book is a classic from one of the best opening lines I have ever read, straight through to the end. A coming of age story, a family saga, triumphs and tragedies, all told with incredible style and grace. The story moves during the forties from the Midwest to Hollywood, to New York and London. The sisters, Eva and Iris endure poverty, enjoy some high living and show us what unconditional love really is. Treat yourself to Lucky Us. You won't regret it.
