A violin prodigy. A Guinness-World-Record Holder. An ASIO target. A grandmother ...

Michelle Balogh was depressed, unemployed and rudderless when she moved into her step-great-grandmother Shan-Yi’s Sydney flat. Recently deceased, Shan-Yi had been part of her family since before Michelle was born and staying at the glamourous art deco apartment was meant to help Michelle back on her feet.

However, the experience did more than just give Michelle respite. She found an extraordinary trove of letters, diaries and papers that told of her great-grandmother’s unique life — one of adventure and heartache, trans-Atlantic travel and espionage.

Part memoir, part biography and part historical reconstruction, Her Kind of Luck is about the luck we find — and the luck we make for ourselves. Through careful research, Michelle Balogh paints an unforgettable picture of her great-grandmother, while coming to terms with her own choices and responsibilities.
