'Great characters, great plots, great emotions, who could ask for more in a novel?' - Isabel Allende, bestselling author of The House of the Spirits The New York Times number one bestselling novel. Despite their differences, sisters Viann and Isabelle have always been close. Younger, bolder Isabelle lives in Paris while Viann 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 Viann finds herself isolated so Isabelle is sent by their father to help her. As the war progresses, the sisters' relationship and strength is tested. With life changing in unbelievably horrific ways, Viann 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. Vivid and exquisite in its illumination of a time and place that was filled with atrocities, but also humanity and strength, Kristin Hannah's The Nightingale will leave you breathless.

  1. Gripande familjeöden under andra världskriget
    Marie Horvath, 16 februari 2016

    Lite trög i början, men tar sig sedan. Fina personporträtt och fasansfull skildring av fransmännens umbäranden under Tysklands ockupation av landet under andra världskriget. Gripande rakt igenom men ändå med Kristin Hannahs känsla för humor på rätta ställen. Snygg tvist på slutet.
    Mycket bra, i stil med Vinterträdgården.
