Request: Novels About Friendship, And About Charity/Service to Others

Hi all! What are the best novels you’ve read about friendship? And have you read any great novels about charity or service to those in need? These don’t need to be “positive” books–in fact, I’m maybe even more interested in books which explore the problems and dilemmas of these forms of love, while still treating them as forms of love. And for the second question I admit I’m especially interested in stories which don’t involve vowed religious (priests, nuns etc), but if your favorite novel is about a priest that’s fine too.
