Crossing to Safety, which was written some time ago, follows the lives of two couples who meet when they're beginning their careers (well, the men are) and follows them as their lives intertwine. Careers, births, tragedies and so on. The best part of the book is Stegners's vivid descriptions of the landscapes.
Suspenseful story of a mission to get a famous scientist out of Auschwitz.
I picked this up at the Atlanta airport when I ran out of books on my Kindle. I enjoyed it. Another World War 2 story, this time of a young Jeiwish woman who poses as a Christian and goes to work for the Kommandant of the Krakow occupying forces.
