Placed during the events of World War II, The Nightingale is not a conventional war novel, it is something different, something bigger. Vianne Mauriac is left with her apprehensions as her husband is sent to war in France. The Nazis invade France with lots of casualties and terror. She is compelled to let an enemy into her house threatening her and her child’s life, as she suffers the war which shouldn’t even involve her.
On the other hand, Vianne’s sister, Isabelle falls in love with a partisan secretly fighting the war. A betrayal sets her on inevitably dangerous path and she joins the resistance.
Two sisters fighting their own battles, with the world in war. Kristin Hannah uncovers the unconventional other side of the war, and the suffering of women.
