"Disappointed by their families, Iris, the hopeful star, and Eva, the sidekick, journey across 1940s America in search of fame and fortune. Iris's ambitions take the sisters from small-town Ohio to an unexpected and sensuous Hollywood, across the America of Reinvention in a stolen station wagon, to the jazz clubs and golden mansions of Long Island. With their friends in high and low places, Iris and Eva stumble and shine through a landscape of big dreams, scandals, betrayals, and war. Filled with memorable characters and unexpected turns, Lucky Us is a thrilling and resonant novel about success and failure, good luck and bad, and the pleasures and inevitable perils of family life. From Brooklyn's beauty parlors to London's West End, these unforgettable people love, lie, cheat, and survive in this story of our fragile, absurd, heroic species" -- from publisher's web site.

An mildly interesting tale with may twists and turns. Certainly good for commuter listening.

On the road in 1940's America.

As soon as Eva, Iris, Francisco, and Edgar start working for the Torelli's, I lost interest (about 1/3 of the way through the book). Made no sense why the girls would allow their thieving father to accompany them on their adventure.
