Book Recommendation of the Month: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
The Nightingale is an engrossing tale of two sisters' bravery in occupied France during WWII. Vianne and Isabelle Rossignol took very different paths after their mother's death devastated their family and war turned their father into a distant and with-drawn parent. Older sister Vianne sought comfort in the arms of a schoolmate, getting pregnant and marrying at just 16. Rebellious Isabelle gets herself kicked out of multiple boarding schools. Then the Germans conquer France, and the sisters' lives change drastically. When her husband is captured and detained as a prisoner of war in Germany, Vianne is forced to take in a German captain. Isabelle joins the Resistance, boldly leading fallen airmen fighting for the liberation of France over the mountains to Spain to safety. A moving story and an emotional tribute to the brave women who fought behind enemy lines during the war.
