Dos hermanas buscan su propio camino hacia la supervivencia, el amor y la libertad en la Francia ocupada durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial.Francia, 1939. En el tranquilo pueblo de Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac se despide de su marido, Antoine, que debe marchar al frente. Ella no cree que los ****** vayan a invadir Francia, pero lo hacen, con batallones de soldados marchando por las calles, con caravanas de camiones y tanques, con aviones que llenan los cielos y lanzan bombas sobre los inocentes. Cuando un capitán alemán requisa la casa de Vianne, ella y su hija deben convivir con el enemigo o arriesgarse a perderlo todo. Sin comida ni dinero ni esperanza, Vianne se ve obligada a tomar decisiones cada vez más difíciles para sobrevivir.La hermana de Vianne, Isabelle, es una joven rebelde de dieciocho años que busca un propósito para su vida con toda la temeraria pasión de la juventud. Mientras miles de parisinos escapan de la ciudad ante la inminente llegada de los alemanes, Isabelle se encuentra con Gaëton, un partisano que cree que los franceses pueden luchar contra los ****** desde dentro de Francia. Isabelle se enamora completamente pero, tras sentirse traicionada, decide unirse a la Resistencia. Sin detenerse nunca para mirar atrás, Isabelle arriesgará su vida una y otra vez para salvar a otros.En el amor descubrimos quiénes queremos ser.En la guerra descubrimos quiénes somos en realidad.ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONIn 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 ****** 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 ****** 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
