Nightingale (Hannah)

Book Reviews
The bestselling author hits her stride in this page-turning tale about two sisters, one in the French countryside, the other in Paris, who show remarkable courage in the German occupation during WWII.... The author ably depicts war’s horrors through the eyes of these two women, whose strength of character shines through no matter their differences.
Publishers Weekly


Character growth and development is a strength of this World War II-set novel, although the middle plods during some sections.... Readers who enjoy stories with ethical dilemmas and character-driven narratives will enjoy this novel full of emotion and heart. —Julia M. Reffner, Midlothian, VA
Library Journal


I read The Nightingale in one sitting, completely transported to wartime France, completely forgetting where I was. A historical novel—built on Kristin Hannah’s proven skill with story, complex and enduring family ties, and passion—one that will captivate readers. —Marilyn Dahl
Shelf Awareness


Hannah vividly demonstrates how the Nazis...demoralized the French, engineering...the deportations and deaths of more than 70,000 Jews. Hannah's proven storytelling skills are ideally suited to depicting such cataclysmic events, but her tendency to sentimentalize undermines the gravitas of this tale. Still, a respectful and absorbing page-turner.
