Kristin Hannah - The Nightingale (2nd Hand Paperback)
Despite their differences, sisters Viann and Isabelle have always been close. Younger, bolder Isabelle lives in Paris while Viann is content with life in the French countryside with her husband Antoine and their daughter.
But when the Second World War strikes, Antoine is sent off to fight and Viann finds herself isolated so Isabelle is sent by their father to help her.
As the war progresses, the sisters' relationship and strength is tested. With life changing in unbelievably horrific ways, Viann and Isabelle will find themselves facing frightening situations and responding in ways they never thought possible as bravery and resistance take different forms in each of their actions.
Vivid and exquisite in its illumination of a time and place that was filled with atrocities, but also humanity and strength, Kristin Hannah's novel will provoke thought and discussion that will have readers talking long after they finish reading.

"The Nightingale has been a New York bestseller for a good reason. This is a amazing story from Kristin Hannah from a women's perspective. A story that really draws you in to the two main characters, sisters who are vastly different in personality and lifestyles in war torn France. Each in their own way trying to survive under German oppression yet each playing a significant part in the resistance from incredibly brave to overwhelming personal cost. I highly recommend this book which I read and couldn't put down. A unforgettable book." - Google Review.
"Wrenching, convincing . . . bittersweet" - Publishers Weekly.
"Movingly written and plotted with the heartless skill of a Greek tragedy, you’ll keep turning the pages until the last racking sob." - Daily Mail.
