The Nightingale | by Kristin Hannah

The NightingaleThe heroism of those living in the times of World War II will never grow old, and Hannah begins her story in France, in the year 1939, when the Nazis invade. Vianne Mauriac and her sister, Isabelle, find themselves struggling to survive in a city they do not recognize. Isabelle takes the city by force, reckless from recent heartbreak, determined to end the war, personally. The exciting backdrop of bombs, tanks and German force is a startling contrast to the beautiful strength of the sisters, captured in Hannah’s elegant prose.
