Georgia’s site, www.georgiahunterauthor.com, offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the extensive research this project has entailed.

I'm writing my next book as we speak! It'll fall into the historical fiction genre, with one storyline set in WWII Italy, and another set in the 2000's, about a granddaughter who spends a month with her grandmother, coming to discover a life-changing piece of her Holocaust-era past. Looking forward to drawing from my own experiences in unearthing my ancestral past as I write :) (less)

David Benioff's "City of Thieves" reads like a film - you'll fly through it. Julie Orringer's "The Invisible Bridge" (based on her grandfather, a young Hungarian Jew studying in Paris @ the start of the war) is long but absolutely gorgeous. Some other favorites are Markus Zusak's "The Book Thief," Anthony Doerr's "All the Light We Cannot See," and Leon Uris's "Mila 18." I also loved Jillian Cantor's "Margot" (an imagining of what might have happened to Anne Frank's sister Margaret, had she survived). What are some of your favorites?? (less)

Georgia Hunter answered Susan M's question: Georgia Hunter
Dear Susan,

Apologies for the long delay in responding to your question! As far as I know, Jakob and Genek's deaths (of heart and lung disease, respectively) were not directly related to their wartime experiences.

I'm so glad you enjoyed the book - I See Full Answer

“The exercise of deciding where to go next is difficult. Because next most likely means a new forever. It means thinking about where to settle. Where to start over. During the war, their options were fewer, the stakes higher, their mission singular. It was simple, in a way. Keep your chin down, your guard up. Stay one step ahead. Stay alive for one more day. Don't let the enemy win. To think about a long-term plan feels complicated, and burdensome, like flexing an atrophied muscle.”
Georgia Hunter, We Were the Lucky Ones

“The exercise of deciding where to go next is difficult. Because next most likely means a new forever.”
Georgia Hunter, We Were the Lucky Ones

“Months later, in a different world, Nechuma will look back on this evening, the last Passover when they were nearly all together, and wish with every cell in her body that she could relive it. She will remember the familiar smell of the gefilte, the chink of silver on porcelain, the taste of parsley, briny and bitter on her tongue. She will long for the touch of Felicia's baby-soft skin, the weight of Jakob's hand on hers beneath the table, the wine-induced warmth in the pit of her belly that begged her to believe that everything might actually turn out all right in the end. She will remember how happy Halina had looked at the piano after their meal, how they had danced together, how they all spoke of missing Addy, assuring each other that he'd be home soon. She will replay it all, over and over again, every beautiful moment of it, and savor it, like the last perfect klapsa pears of the season.”
