I’m mourning the loss of this book along with all the characters who met a sad ending.
The Nightingale begins in France in 1939 in a quiet village of Carriveau when Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Anton, as he leaves for the front. When the Germans invade, a German officer requisitions Vianne’s home. She and her daughter must live with this enemy or lose their everything. She is forced to make one terrifying decision after another in order to keep her family alive.
But Vianne’s sister, Isabelle, a rebellious 18-year-old, meets Gaetan, a partisan who believes he can fight the Nazis from inside France, and she falls in love. But when he betrays her, she joins the Resistance, and risks her life 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.”
PLEASE, WILL SOMEONE RECOMMEND TO ME A BOOK i WILL LOVE AS MUCH. I’VE PUT DOWN FOUR SINCE!
