About the Book



"The nightingale tells the story of two sisters, separated by years and experiences, by ideals, passion, and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France."--Back cover.



Book Synopsis



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.

This was one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read. Although this is a fiction novel of two sisters during the Holocaust era, you know this was the reality of many women. Fiction inspired by true, heartbreaking realities. Everyone needs to read!

Best book I have read in 2023 if not best book ever. Though it is thick, it was a quick read. Loved the characters and learning a few new things about WW2 as well. I recommend it to everyone. It’s the educational emotional rollercoaster I didn’t know I needed but will keep this book in my personal library forever
