Readers’ Review on The Nightingale
I have long been fascinated with the stories of World War 2, which is why I chose to read this book. The story focuses on two sisters – Isabelle and Viann— in occupied France, and what they did to survive the war. While the characters in this book are not real, their stories are based on things that really happened during World War 2. It was a new perspective for me to read of what women did during the war; not just them surviving at home without their men, (fathers and husbands) but what they did to save those in danger. These women endured incredible, unimaginable circumstances. They were faced with danger and difficult decisions. They had to be brave and strong and keep moving forward despite their hardships.

“The Nightingale” may be Kristin Hannah’s best book yet! Combining history, family relationships and dynamics, as well as focusing on individuals doing what is necessary to survive the horrors of war, this novel draws readers into the story and holds them firmly in its grip from first page to last. It is a novel of finding the courage to do what is right and then of doing what is necessary to do the right thing.
For the first time in ages I stayed up through the night reading a book, reaching the last page after 9:00 a.m. “The Nightingale” by Kristin Hannah is that good. I simply couldn’t put it down. This isn’t just a book about World War II, or women who worked in the French Resistance; it goes much, much deeper. You’ll be quickly drawn into the lives of Viann and Isabelle, their history and complicated relationship, as well as France during its German occupation. Yet “The Nightingale” is about far more than even that. It’s about ordinary people drawn into unthinkable circumstances beyond their control and the choices they must make to take back some of that control… impulsive choices, dangerous choices, heart wrenching and even catastrophic choices that can’t be undone. It’s about bravery and cowardice. Most of all, the novel is about the power of love in all its many forms.
