Staff Reviews


This World War II novel was different from all other historical fiction from this time period. It follows two very different sisters in France as they deal with the harrowing effects of the war. It is moving and so beautifully written. The family aspect of this book is by far the best part of it. It shows that no matter how different you may be from your family, they are the only ones you can rely on. This book will make you feel every kind of emotion out there. This book is recommended for readers who love to binge read books, you won’t want to put this one down!

“Filled with sacrifice, betrayal, suspense, courage, and ultimately, forgiveness, The Nightingale offers a haunting glimpse of what it was like for women to survive during WWII. Set in a small town in France, The Nightingale tells the alternating stories of two sisters, their father, and the friends and enemies that occupy their lives during this tragic period of history. Based on a true story, The Nightingale weaves a riveting tale around the heroism of Isabelle, a young woman who serves as a key player in the underground Resistance, and her sister, Viann, who is back home under German occupation, near starvation and struggling to save Jewish children. In the end, however, perhaps this novel is more about the sisterly bonds of love that, although stretched to the limit, still endure. You will not forget the song of The Nightingale.”
