"The Nightingale" by Kristin Hannah



In a nutshell, this book is a story about two very strong women. Two extremely strong women!


I was very excited when one of my book clubs chose The Nightingale to read and discuss. Lots of friends had read it and I just didn’t have the opportunity. It looked like a long book to read, however, I was ready for the task at hand. And, I am glad that I did!


The story of this World War II historical fiction novel is one that I have not read before. Two French sisters enduring what happened to them in France. Yes, most of the WWII novels that I have read concern Germans and their citizens. France being occupied by the Nazis and occupying the French in their homes and in their towns is not written about too often. Or, maybe I just haven’t come across those books.
