Fayetteville, AR -

New Hannover House release, "One of the Lucky Ones" - the true story of a Jewish girl in the French Resistance of WWII, by Brenda Hancock - sets single-event sales record.

"One of the Lucky Ones," the story of Nicole Holland by Brenda Hancock, set a single-store, single-event sales record for publisher Hannover House (OTC: HHSE) last night with 182 copies sold by Nightbird Books of Fayetteville, AR.  Holland's adventures as a Jewish girl in the French Resistance Fighters of World War II resonated to a responsive crowd of about 100 attendees anxious to meet the Holland and her daughter and author Brenda Hancock.  The book's print edition publication date was Tuesday, July 23, 2013, with an eBook edition scheduled for release next week.

 

"Nicole is an amazing individual and a mesmerizing speaker," said Fred Shefte, President of Hannover House.  "We were delighted at the turnout to the launch event, and excited to see many attendees purchasing multiple copies.  We look forward to organizing future in-store appearances for Nicole and Brenda as their stories of the War, the Holocaust and Nicole's participation in the underground French Resistance Movement engaged the crowd," he concluded.

 

"One of the Lucky Ones" has been selected for placement into Barnes & Noble Stores, and is currently available through a wide number of independent booksellers, schools and libraries.  The trade back edition of the book is priced at $15.95 suggested retail; the ISBN for the book is: 978-098373801.

 

Born Cipa Widerman into a large Jewish family in Warsaw, Poland in November of 1922, Nicole Holland immigrated at the age of six months with her mother and sisters to Paris, France where they joined her father and brothers.  Her happy childhood was spent in an apartment house built for large families like hers on Ile St. Louis in the middle of Paris with summers at Colleville, later known as Omaha Beach.  

 

Once the Nazis invaded France, and more specifically Paris, her life changed drastically.  As a Jewish indeterminee or a person with no nationality, Nicole was included on the list of the first round-ups of Jews.  Barely missing arrest, she escaped to unoccupied France and took on a new, non-Jewish identity.  As a na?ve teenager, she was thrust from the comfort of a loving home and forced to survive on her own in several strange cities.  Nicole managed to find work and friends and along the way became a member of the French Underground in order to do whatever she could to rid France of the Nazi invaders.  When the Germans began retreating, she even joined the Underground fighters she had supplied with messages and arms as the only woman fighting with them as liberators.   

 

Upon her return to Paris, she joined the CAVF, an organization of the former French Underground.  Through this job, she searched for lost family members and a way to build a future without hatred, fear, and the devastation of war.  One of the Lucky Ones is the story of her amazing journey.
