The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, narrated by Polly Stone

The NightingaleThe Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is war through the eyes of sisters Vianne, whose husband goes reluctantly to the front to fight the Nazis, and of Isobel, a rebellious 18-year-old whose behavior is a problem. The story presents an absorbing view of the gradual manipulation of the French by fascists during World War II. The sisters carry the story and show readers how durable women are and how love endures as they make hard choices to stay alive.
