War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

War and Peace – with all its beauty and meaning – became the antidote to the anxiety I had been suffering from. After more than a thousand pages of getting to know Pierre Bezukhov and friends, I realised that the characters created by a long-dead Russian author were really not that dissimilar from the modern people around me. I understood that it was not only possible to relate to the text, but to learn something from it and come to know myself a little better.” – Lucy

 

“War & Peace has helped me learn about surviving; the people who have been through the worst possible are the ones to befriend because they are the people who know how to survive. It’s taught me commitment and pride in beliefs.” – Drew
