Staff Reviews


What a joy! A group of occasionally unfortunate but ultimately lucky characters remake their lives and redefine "family" as they move across the country during the 1940s and 50s. Written with wit and style - surprising you each time the plot swerves in a new direction. — Louise Jones

August 2014 Indie Next List


“Vivid and satisfying, Lucky Us is the story of two motherless half-sisters thrown together by fate and determined to make their way in a world where the cards are stacked against them. It is a study about the way that - 'family' is not just something we're born into, but also something we make for ourselves. Bloom gives us lively, unforgettable characters who are so warm, human, and irrepressible that they transcend even the darkest events of their lives. I loved this novel!”
— Carol Schneck Varner, Schuler Books & Music, Okemos, MI

Description


Disappointed by their families, Iris, the hopeful star, and Eva, the sidekick, journey through 1940s America in search of fame and fortune. Iris's ambitions take the pair across the America of Reinvention in a stolen station wagon, from small-town Ohio to an unexpected and sensuous Hollywood, and to the jazz clubs and golden mansions of Long Island.
