Although I was pretty sure I would disagree with the majority of other readers who said that THE NIGHTINGALE by Kristin Hannah is an excellent book, I can now honestly tell you to believe it. I had read two other books by Hannah and was not impressed, so I doubted that she had it in her to write like this. I was wrong.

This book has been reviewed so much already, it is sufficient to say that it is a piece of historical fiction that highlights the remarkable women of France when the Germans occupied that country during World War II. The story concentrates on two sisters, one based on an actual person, the other based on the lives of many women in France at that time.

So many books have been written about World War II, you may tend to avoid reading more. But this is one you don't want to miss.

 
  "Breathtakingly Beautiful Gift of a Book" by zodejodie4 (see profile) 04/21/21

What a breathtakingly beautiful gift of a book! The stories within its pages are so eloquently brought to life by Kristin Hannah's transcendent prose.
I resisted reading this book for much longer than I should have. Given all the well-deserved, as I now know, hype, accolades & praise heaped upon it, I just couldn't bring myself to do so. I'm beyond grateful that I finally waded past my aversion & read what has inexorably earned a spot among my all-time favorites.
Poignant, affecting, evocative, perfect. The superlatives to adequately describe this book simply do not exist, so leaving just a few here will have to do.
