By Sharon Tillotson I read Brothers Karamazov about thirty years ago and when I received a Kindle as an early Christmas present and saw the book was available to be read on my delightful new device, I knew I had to re-read it, if for nothing other than the experience. I made copious notes,...

I just finished Resistance by Anita Shreve.  After a rather slow start, it was a sad, poignant love story set during World War II.
