We were the lucky ones (2).jpg

The Women's Book Group is reading We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter beginning Thursday, January 10 at 6 pm. We would love to have you join us! Let me know (jan@saintjoan.org) if you want me to order a book for you - cost is $13.
This is just one of hundreds of excellent reviews of the book: "Although this is historical fiction, the author, the granddaughter of one of the main characters, tells the amazing story of her family's survival during WWII in Poland, when only 300 people survived! Georgia Hunter's writing is exquisite and I was in tears several times just reading about the love that each family member shared and their pluckiness that brought them safely to freedom. I learned so much--how the Jews in France fled to Brazil, how members of Ander's Army (of which I did not know) had to survive in the gulags of Siberia, how people lived in the ghettos of Polish towns and how they survived being deported or being sheltered by nuns, employers or willing families.”
