Book Preview: We Were The Lucky Ones – Georgia Hunter

Based on the true story of the author’s family, this amazing, heartbreaking story of one family’s survival amidst the horrors of the Second World War and Holocaust. 

The Kurc family live peacefully in Poland, as they have done for generations amongst until war breaks out. Their Jewish faith condemns them to the terrors of a continent torn apart. 

There are some real heart wrenching moments, and the fact that the author’s relatives actually lived this story is just incredible, they are so brave and strong and endure so much. It’s not really a surprise Hunter’s grandfather never spoke about his past. 

I loved this book, it really drew me into the family, each member drawn so beautifully, so alive on the page. 

The book is published in the UK on the 21st of September, which gives you just enough time to pre-order it from your preferred purveyor of books.
