“If I have learned anything in this long life of mine, it is this: In love we find out who we want to be; in war we find out who we are.”   

The Nightingale is a well written novel in a beautiful, spellbinding voice. The fact that the narrator is unknown adds to the intrigue of the overall storyline. The book tells the story of two French sisters, Vianne and Isabelle, and their struggles to save lives and survive during WWII. The author made me feel as though I endured their suffering, fear, and heartache. A wonderful book with considerable depth and passion! Very emotional!

Read this compelling story to find out what ultimately happens to Vianne and Isabelle. Each sister has her own story and together they have a shared story of family and life.

The above thoughts and opinions are wholly my own.

Five stars!
