Resistance by Anita Shreve


I read this in one sitting.  This is, hands down, the most beautiful story I've read so far this year.  It's shorter than her other novels, but I just couldn't put it down.  Set in Belgium during WWII, Shreve describes the fateful love between wounded American bomber pilot and married, Maquis Resistance fighter.  The last chapter had me grasping for kleenex.  It's a MUST read.
