The author ably depicts war's horrors through the eyes of these two women, whose strength of character shines through no matter their differences. * Publishers Weekly * A respectful and absorbing page-turner. * Kirkus Reviews * An unforgettable portrait of love and war. * People * The real horrors of war; the deprivations; the risks are all there... This is a hauntingly tragic yet sympathetic novel * The Cape Times * Beautifully written . . . packed with action and emotion. -- Sara Gruen, bestselling author of Water for Elephants I loved The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, a talented writer of American stories; great characters, great plots, great emotions, who could ask for more in a novel? -- Isabel Allende, bestselling author of The House of the Spirits --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Inside Flap

In love we find out who we want to be. In war we find out who we are. France, 1939. In the quiet, rural village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband as he heads for the Front. The invading Nazi soldiers have arrived in droves with their trucks and tanks. And planes fill the skies, dropping bombs on the innocent. When a German captain requisitions her home, Vianne is forced to make one impossible sacrifice after another to keep her family alive. Vianne's rebellious sister Isabelle is searching for purpose with all the reckless passion of youth. While thousands of Parisians flee the city, Isabella meets and falls in love with Gaetan, a committed partisan. When war separates them, Isabelle joins the Resistance, risking her life time and again to save others. The Nightingale tells the story of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, courage, passion and circumstance - each one embarking on her own dangerous path towards survival, love and freedom in an occupied, war-torn country. Heartbreakingly beautiful, it is a novel that celebrates the resilience of the female spirit. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG!!
By KRISHNAVENI SUBBIAH on 7 December 2019
The Nightingale is the story of two sisters at the time of World War II in France. I'm not going to say more than this about the plot. It took me quite a time to process what I read, what I went through by this book. This is no more just a book for me but a precious gem that I got in my shelves and it's going to be safely guarded. Please! I tell you all to read this if you haven't... Please do read it. Its a book that taught me what persistence and courage actually means, how extreme life can be to one and what survival means. Still, I do not know if I can put in words what I feel. It's delicate and fragile to an extent that I even felt so careful while turning the pages. The story and the plot is literally tragic, painful and sad. The writing is chiseled to perfection that I felt like standing right in the scene. I was crying, smiling and was going through the feelings equally as the characters and picturized every single person from the book. Not only the protagonists but every single character is beautiful. And I was completely broken at a place which I do not want to reveal, otherwise it would become a spoiler. I'm speechless... and I do not know if I would read something like this ever. I would definitely say the Nightingale as an example of what a book must be. More than the story, it was also informative about the period of war from a different perspective. I'm truely grateful for having read this book and glad that I didn't miss this out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Books like THE NIGHTINGALE is why I love historical fictions
By Jane on 12 November 2017
Books like THE NIGHTINGALE is why I love historical fictions. Like most historical fictions, THE NIGHTINGALE is set around WWII. We embark on the lives of two sisters, one a middle aged mother who is afraid to stand up for herself, the other a rebellious young lady who wishes to serve and save her people however she can, how the war affects their bond and relationship. A beautiful tale that is sure to capture your heart ❤
