A #1 New York Times bestseller, Wall Street Journal Best Book of the Year, and soon to be a major motion picture, this unforgettable novel of love and strength in the face of war has enthralled a generation.

With courage, grace, and powerful insight, bestselling author Kristin Hannah captures the epic panorama of World War II and illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the women's war. The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France--a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women. It is a novel for everyone, a novel for a lifetime.

Goodreads Best Historical Novel of the Year - People's Choice Favorite Fiction Winner - #1 Indie Next Selection - A Buzzfeed and The Week Best Book of the Year

Review:

A beautifully written and richly evocative examination of life, love, the ravages of war, and the different ways people react to unthinkable situations-not to mention the terrible and mounting toll of keeping secrets. This powerhouse of a story is equally packed with action and emotion, and is sure to be another major hit. I loved it.--Sara Gruen, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Water for Elephants

"I loved Kristin Hannah's "The Nightingale." She has captured a particular slice of French life during World War II with wonderful details and drama. But what I loved most about the novel was the relationship between the two sisters and Hannah's exploration of what we do in moments of great challenge. Do we rise to the occasion or fail? Are we heroes or cowards? Are we loyal to the people we love most or do we betray them? Hannah explores these questions with probing finesse and great heart." --"Lisa See, #1 New York Times bestseller author of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan"

"In this epic novel, set in France in World War II, two sisters who live in a small village find themselves estranged when they disagree about the imminent threat of occupation. Separated by principles and temperament, each must find her own way forward as she faces moral questions and life-or-death choices. Haunting, action-packed, and compelling." --"Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train"

"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-that will captivate readers." --"Marilyn Dahl, Shelf Awareness"

"I found "The Nightingale" to be absolutely riveting! I started reading it one night after supper, with every intention of reading just a few chapters for that evening, and could not put it down. Not only is it an emotionally inspiring story with well-drawn characters who you grow to care about deeply but it is also historically informative....Read this book. It will keep you guessing throughout about the two sisters, Vianne and Isabelle, both brave young women who did what they thought was the right thing to do in the most difficult of circumstances. They had--in the words of Lawrence Langer the World War II historian-scholar--too often to make 'choiceless choices.'" --"Dr. Miriam Klein Kassenoff, director of the University of Miami Holocaust Teacher Institute"
