REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER
It may be a coincidence of my own interests, but WWII fiction seems to be taking center stage in historical fiction these days. This time, in The Nightingale, Kristin Hannah brings us the story of two sisters in war torn France, each surviving the war in her own way. One waits for her husband to return, struggling to protect her daughter and reckon with the German officer billeted in her home. The other, young and rebellious, becomes a symbol of the French resistance. Hannah’s treatment of the characters, who each bring a distinct voice to the struggle of WWII France, combined with classic storytelling style make this an engaging read.
