The Nightingale, Kristin Hannah
Despite their differences, sisters Vianne and Isabelle have always been close. Younger, bolder Isabelle lives in Paris while Vianne is content with life in the French countryside with her husband Antoine and their daughter. But when the Second World War strikes, Antoine is sent off to fight and Vianne finds herself isolated so Isabelle is sent by their father to help her.
As the war progresses, the sisters’ relationship and strength are tested. With life changing in unbelievably horrific ways, Vianne and Isabelle will find themselves facing frightening situations and responding in ways they never thought possible as bravery and resistance take different forms in each of their actions.
I was drawn to this book after reading All the Light We Cannot See, but actually preferred this book. I enjoyed reading how, these two sisters, who were very different in temperament, dealt with each situation in their own way. But they were always loyal to each other, right to the end. I couldn’t put the book down.
