The Nightingale: A Novel by Kristin Hannah

You know that feeling when a book is so absorbing that you just can't put it down and you want to cancel all your plans so you can keep reading it and even when you can’t read it, you’re thinking about it? Yeah, that was me with this book! Once I started reading, I could barely put it down until I’d reached the last page. It starts during France World War II, The Nightingale shines a light on the lives of women under Nazi rule, and the dangerous roles they played in heroic acts of subterfuge and defiance.Vianne and Isabelle are sisters who couldn’t be more different. Their mother had died young and their father, a World War I survivor, was fairly absent from their lives, usually from the drink. Vianne, the eldest, grew up fast, married early, and took over the family home. The father moved to Paris and nobody had time for Isabelle. She was the rebel and the rule breaker, constantly escaping from boarding school or getting kicked out. Well, that's just a teaser. I am gonna stop before I ruin t for you. I highly recommend. Very powerful book. #TheNightingale "I received this book for free from SheSpeaks."
