Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. It's about Louis Zamperini, an Olympian who was a POW in WWII. He and his fellow POWs were treated with the utmost of brutality. (30% of POWs in Japanese hands died as compared to only 1% dying under the Nazis.) He managed to find peace and forgiveness through becoming a Christian.
Sister Pelagia and the White Bulldog by Borin Akunin. About a Russian Orthodox nun who solves mysteries. Hopefully it will be good.....
I just started Devil at My Heels by Louis Zamperini. Costco special, purchased along with Antony Beevor's The Second World War. I liked his book Stalingrad. May be awhile before I get to it. +-632
That last part was the cat's input on the topic.
Just finished Mark Mazower's Inside Hitler's Greece which was a good read. Then started The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History by John M. Barry. It is really interesting, but I got sidetracked and will have to go back.
Other than that, the third in the series of Spiritual Counsels by Elder Paisios Spiritual Struggle.
Then a bunch of technical gobbledy-gook for work, which I actually sometimes really enjoy.
edit: title correction
