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.

    I have never read one of Kristin Hannah‘s books, but a friend recommended this to me. It consumed me from the very beginning and I could not put it down. The heartbreak that these characters endured and what the French went through in WWll was so evident throughout this book. I don’t recall ever crying while reading a book but I did in this one. I would recommend this to everyone, and I look forward to reading more of her books. I hope they are as good this one!

    Beautifully written and intensely personal, this story is a gift. It brought me back to my father’s Jewish family and what they might have endured before they immigrated to America in the early 1920’s. Thank you.
