I’ve always been an avid reader but I haven’t been able to find enough time this year to get swept away in a good book. If it isn’t a page turner, I barely pick it up anymore.
I love a great story, and nowadays that’s what keeps me interested. So picking up Kristin Hannah’s The Nightingale, I was apprehensive about reading another novel about WWII. There are just so many: All The Light We Cannot See, Sarah’s Key, Suite Francaise, the list could go on and on. I loved all those reads but haven’t I read this story a dozen times already?
The Nightingale is the page turner you’ve been looking for. I loved the weaving stories of two heroine sisters, Vianne and Isabelle, living two different paths during German occupied France. It’s their unbelievable struggle for love, freedom and survival during the darkest time our world has ever seen. The strength and bravery portrayed in this book will resonate with you as a woman and as a mother. It will break your heart and move you to tears.
The story turns in so many unexpected ways that I was sneaking this book in every chance I had. I don’t want to give away any more details as I want you to read it as I did: without knowing much about it. I can’t wait to make it my next book club pick. Just trust me, the next book you buy, PLEASE let it be this one. You will absolutely love this story.
