Saints and Villains book. I picked up this book partly because I wanted to read something by Denise Giardina, a renowned West Virginia author. I was surprised to find this, inasmuch as I assumed all of her books were about Appalachia. But, I have always been intrigued with Dietrich Bonhoeffer, but didn't know much at all about his life, so I picked it up. I was hesitant to read this because I realize it was a work of historical fiction, and I do intend to delve more into the life of this heroic and brilliant man.
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.

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.
