Overview

Saints and Villains : A Novel by Denise Giardina

In the charnel house that was Europe in the Second World War, there were few instances of shining moral courage, let along secular sainthood. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the German theologian and Nazi resister was the exception. This emblematic figure risked his life--and finally lost it--through his participation in a failed plot to assassinate Hitler and topple his regime. Saints and Villains gives us this exemplary life in a sweeping narrative that is bold in conception and utterly convincing in its power of imaginative reconstruction.

This book gives you an idea of what it was like for so many Germans who were against Hilter and yet were forced to make so many difficult decisions. It also gave you a perspective of what was going on in America and why it took so long for the world to react!!! I highly recommend this book for reading groups or individuals. I was happy that it did not go into the gory details of this war and the tortures.

This is an extremely important book covering the highest order of morality. The characters come to life and you feel their struggle and agonize over their decisions. The historical nature of the story makes it all the more compelling as you can relate your knowldge, as skeletal as it may be, to the fleshed out accounts in this novel. I loved reading this book
