Arona Lipman McHugh, the author of four novels, two of them set in her native Boston, died on Wednesday at St. Vincent's . Mrs. McHugh then turned out a historical novel in 1969, "The Luck of the Van Meers," which traced several generations of a Dutch-Jewish family. Vincent's Medical Center in Staten Island. She was 71 and lived in the West Brighton section. The cause was cardiac arrest, her family said. Her final novel, also historical, was "The Calling of the Mercenaries" (1977), which focused on occupied Germany after World War II. McHugh graduated in 1950 with one of the first groups to finish the writer's program at the University of Iowa.

Colonel Van Luck's book is equally good as the companion book I bought at the same time. I read them both back-to-back. This man also tried to not let the political situation in Germany not deter him from performing his duty to the utmost. Hans Von Luck is a cosmopolite Prussian gentleman well aware of the excesses of the Nazi regime, before being a highly talented and respected Wehrmacht frontline officer and his memories truly convey the feeling of those times on the "other side of the hill". I read for decades books on WWII written by "Allied" authors (historians and militaries) and I very much appreciated reading something from a German authoritative and "balanced" point of view.

The Luck of Roaring Camp" is a short story by American author Bret Harte. It was first published in the August 1868 issue of the Overland Monthly and helped push Harte to international prominence. The story is about the birth of a baby boy in a 19th-century gold prospecting camp. The boy's mother, Cherokee Sal, dies in childbirth, so the men of Roaring Camp must raise it themselves. Believing the child to be a good luck charm, the miners christen the boy Thomas Luck.
