For the literary site Running ‘n Reading, November 2017 is non-fiction month. As part of this deep dive, the editors chose Goodreads Finalist We Were the Lucky Ones to pair with its non-fiction selection, The Girls of Atomic City by Denise Kiernan, also set in World War II and highly researched. Although told from different perspectives, both books are lauded as “highly inspiring tales of perseverance through extraordinary circumstances and a devastating period in our history.” About We Were the Lucky Ones, the reviewer writes: “I cannot say enough complimentary things about this novel…YOU MUST READ IT.”
