The Nightingale is not a lighthearted read or discussion, but provides a poignant view of life in France during WWII. The theme of our discussion kept coming back to "Those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it". The book itself is a beautiful story and most members loved it, but expect to be haunted by the ghosts of WWII.
The whole group agreed (which isn't usually the case) that the book had a great idea behind it, but wasn't made to be a believable story. It was a quick and easy read, but I left feeling completely annoyed with how the story was presented.
