Publisher Description

Soon to be a major motion picture, The Nightingale is a multi-million copy bestseller across the world. It is a heart-breakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the endurance of women.

This story is about what it was like to be a woman during World War II when women’s stories were all too often forgotten or overlooked . . . Vianne and Isabelle Mauriac are two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals and passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path towards survival, love and freedom in war-torn France.

Kristin Hannah's The Nightingale is a novel for everyone, a novel for a lifetime.

Once again Kristin Hannah does not disappoint with her book The Nightingale, weaving a story that pulls on your heartstrings and lets you feel that you are there to witness and experience the beautiful story of two French sisters and their struggles during the Second World War.

Their story helps shine a light on the amazing things women accomplished during the Second World War - as mother’s keeping their families safe and also as an integral but often hidden part of the war effort.

This story left me in tears and I can’t recommend it enough.

A brilliant book.

The Nightingale depicts the horrors of World War Two. It is so moving, graphic, tense, detailed and so much more. I am not surprised that it is so well thought of. One of the best books that I’ve read.
