>> Passion, courage and excitability best describe Kristin Hannah’s novel “The Nightingale.” In this book, you are taken on an adventure during the terrible times of World War II. The main characters, Vianne and Isabelle, are two sisters separated not only by their ages but also their action. Vianne is left alone with her daughter after her husband goes to the front lines, while Isabelle tries to fight back with all the strength she has. Throughout the book, you see the two sisters’ lives come unraveled, and choices must be made to keep one another safe. This book not only offers a look into what France was like during World War II, but it also shows the struggles of the women of the time. I made an emotional connection to the characters in the book, and I wish the story would continue, so I can see what happened after the war ended. If you are looking for a book that can keep you on the edge of your seat, this is the book for you.
