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.

    The most awesome historical fiction book I’ve read. Does Hitler know what havoc he wreaked on so many people in every way possible and even those not possible? I cried through the entire book, but appreciated what it taught me.
  • Beautifully written, heart wrenching

    Makes you feel every warm breeze and cold snowy chill. Every deprivation and hunger pang. You cry at the devastation and death and feel worn out but cheered by the final triumph of good over evil. These sisters choices,, how the get through the war, are deeply moving. One of the best of the novels on this subject I’ve read.
