A Bend in the Stars provides an intuitive sense of terror as Russia slips into WWI, and the particular horror for Jews at that time. This is a great read novel for anyone who loves historical fiction, science, and math. In this novel, Rachel says Miri doctor and her brilliant physicist brother, Vanya. A famous man who has taught both sister and brother to defend themselves at all costs, to fight and to kill if necessary. The story takes place on the eve of World War I and it’s really about two headstrong siblings driven by their different passions, and the power of ideas to change the world.
