We Were the Lucky Ones is a 2017 favorite in the Prose & Pastime online book club. “Occasionally, you find a book that moves you, that stays with you, that demands you share it. A story that is simultaneously heart wrenching and gratifying. One that is too unlikely to be true, yet it is true. We Were the Lucky Ones is that book.” This review at The Art of “Why Not? concludes: “Should you read We Were the Lucky Ones? Let’s just say you’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t.”
