Book Review: The Nightingale

You guys… if you have not read The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah yet… go on your Libby, go to your library, go to your local bookseller, go to your Kindle, go wherever you need to go to get this book and read it because…. WOW!


This is a story of two sisters and the Second World War and all that they do to ensure their people are kept safe. This is a story about coming of age, of learning to love, of bravery, and of resilience. I don’t think I need to say anything more other than:!


Captivating, breathtaking, beautiful. I can’t think of enough words to describe how truly wonderful this book was. I really enjoy historical fiction nowadays and I found myself sobbing through the entire second half of the book. Following Isabel and Vianne as they worked to resist the war in their own ways felt like I was living through it all right beside each of them. I loved each and every chapter. I loved seeing Vianne’s personal growth and Isabel coming into her own as an adult. I loved how both women set aside their fears to face the danger that came along with rebelling- their bravery is truly unmatched and inspiring. Kristin Hannah, you have a fan for life! If you are a fan of historical fiction and enjoyed The Lovely War, this book is 100% for you!
