Jose Gironella, "The Cypresses Believe in God", the most powerful novel of the Spanish Civil War.

We gave that book to a Communist for Christmas and he said he enjoyed it, though it didn’t change his mind.

That was EXCELLENT!
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”
