Hear what people are saying about LUCKY US:

“Is a family the people you are born to, or the people who you find along the way? That’s what Bloom explores in this novel set in pre- and post-WWII Ohio, Los Angeles, New York and Germany. The story follows resourceful Eva, who was abandoned by her mother at an early age, and her sister Iris, an aspiring actress who tries to find love at a time when her kind of love must be secretive. Every character is beautifully drawn, warm, and believable.”—Kathryn Hassert, Henrietta Hankin Branch Library, Chester Springs, PA (LibraryReads review)

“With a spare and trusting style, Bloom invites readers to fill the spaces her pretty prose allows, with true and beautiful results.”—Booklist, starred review

“Bloom offers something unrepentantly quirky, a madcap romp complete with road trips, secret identities, aspiring Hollywood starlets, and a tarot card-reading fake psychic…Full of intriguing characters and lots of surprises…readers of literary fiction and 20th-century historicals, as well as fans of wacky humor, will find it an excellent choice.”—Library Journal, starred review

“Wryly narrated by Alicyn Packard…I loved her delivery of ironic line after line…Highly Recommended.“—Fangs, Wands, & Fairy Dust blog audio review
