Description

The Nightingale In love we find out who we want to be.
In war we find out who we are.
 
FRANCE, 1939
 
In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front.  She doesn’t believe that the Nazis will invade France...but invade they do, in droves of marching soldiers, in caravans of trucks and tanks, in planes that fill the skies and drop bombs upon the innocent. When a German captain requisitions Vianne’s home, she and her daughter must live with the enemy or lose everything. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates all around them, she is forced to make one impossible choice after another to keep her family alive.
 
Vianne’s sister, Isabelle, is a rebellious eighteen-year-old girl, searching for purpose with all the reckless passion of youth.  While thousands of Parisians march into the unknown terrors of war, she meets Gäetan, a partisan who believes the French can fight the Nazis from within France, and she falls in love as only the young can...completely.  But when he betrays her, Isabelle joins the Resistance and never looks back, risking her life time and again to save others.
 
With courage, grace and powerful insight, bestselling author Kristin Hannah captures the epic panorama of WWII and illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the women’s war.   The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France--a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women.  It is a novel for everyone, a novel for a lifetime.

    I COULD NOT put it down. This is a must read for anyone who loves WWII fiction. The only thing I didn’t like was that it was a little too descriptive with a rape scene, but it’s worth reading definitely!!!!
  • Simply amazing

    I could not put this book down. I love reading about WWII and this being my first Kristin Hannah book, I was blown away. A great read for anyone who wants to read about the women in WWII. Great historical fiction that clearly had a lot of research put into it. I’m sure college students can relate, but during college, I “lost” my love for reading because of all of the required reading. The Nightingale has reignited my love for books and since then, I have read another K. Hannah book (Winter Garden) and it only took me 2 days. I recommend that one as well! Enjoy!
  • A book has never touched me as much as this book.

    I haven't read a book this real, this raw, this riveting in a long time. I agree with the other reviews - you can in vision that time in history, feel the characters' heart aches - be along for the ride - making it impossible to put this book down. It is a must read. Don't forget the box of tissues.
  • Amazing!!
