Description
In this gripping story of two sisters, separated by their years and their ideals as well as by an invading army, Kristin Hannah captures the epic sweep of World War II in Europe and illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen—the women's war. In the quiet French village of Carriveau in 1939, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband Antoine as he heads for the fighting at the Front. She doesn't believe that the Nazis will invade France, but soon the country is overrun, and a German captain requisitions Vianne's home, forcing her and her daughter to live with the enemy or lose everything. Vianne's sister Isabelle is a rebellious 18-year-old, searching for purpose in Paris with all the reckless passion of youth. There she meets Gäetan, a partisan who believes the French can fight the Nazis from within France, and she falls completely in love. But when he betrays her, Isabelle joins the Resistance and never looks back, risking her life time and again to rescue and help anyone opposed to the Nazis. As each embarks on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom, Hannah celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women.

"I read The Nightingale in one sitting, completely transported to wartime France, completely forgetting where I was. A historical novel—built on Kristin Hannah's proven skill with story, complex and enduring family ties, and passion—one that will captivate readers."—Shelf Awareness

"She has captured a particular slice of French life during World War II with wonderful details and drama. But what I loved most about the novel was the relationship between the two sisters and Hannah's exploration of what we do in moments of great challenge. Do we rise to the occasion or fail? Are we heroes or cowards? Are we loyal to the people we love most or do we betray them? Hannah explores these questions with probing finesse and great heart."—Lisa See
