Description - The Fortunate Ones by Ellen M. Umansky

Vienna, 1939: As the specter of war darkens Europe, Rose Zimmer's parents are desperate. Unable to get out of Austria, they manage to send their young daughter on a Kindertransport to live with strangers in England.

Los Angeles, present day: Lizzie Goldstein returns home for her father's funeral, grief-stricken and shouldering a sense of guilt she cannot displace.

When Lizzie and Rose meet, they discover that the same Chaim Soutine painting has been stolen from them both-and has never been recovered. As the two women share their stories, and the sense of loss the painting sparks in them, they begin to forge a friendship that will release both from the long-held burdens they carry. Spanning decades and unfolding in crystalline, atmospheric prose, The Fortunate Ones is a haunting story of longing, devastation, and forgiveness, and a deep examination of the bonds and desires that map our private histories.
