During the two months since Dmitri was arrested, Grushenka has been ill. Now, as she begins to  recover physically, there are also signs of a major spiritual recovery, of a complete "spiritual  transformation in her." Also, there is another change: she and Alyosha have become fast friends, and  she confides to him that she and Dmitri have quarreled again. In addition, she fears that Dmitri is  once again falling in love with Katerina Ivanova. What most concerns her, however, is that Dmitri and  Ivan are concealing a secret from her. She pleads with Alyosha to discover what the secret is. Again,  Alyosha promises to help a human being in trouble.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
