By Kristin Hannah
A #1 New York Times bestseller, Wall Street Journal Best Book of the Year, and soon to be a major motion picture, this unforgettable novel of love and strength in the face of war has enthralled a generation.
With courage, grace, and powerful insight, bestselling author Kristin Hannah captures the epic panorama of World War II 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.

One of the best stories I’ve ever read5By mariesh2014I finished this book over a month ago and the characters are still living in my head. I think about it often. It’s a heartbreaking story that opened my eyes to so many of the hardships endured during that dark time. Even through the sadness I couldn’t stop reading, I needed to know what happened. The writing is excellent. This book will make you feel deeply. If you can handle a heavy read, I highly recommend this one.

Good read.5By Patricia BKThis was such a good book. It is appalling to read of the atrocities that was endured, but so important to learn.
Not an immersive reading experience1By Basch.Not a fan of the prose or storytelling technique(s). The premise is interesting enough, but I found myself reluctantly trudging through each page to reach the ending.
