Description

Soon to be a major motion picture, The Nightingale is a multi-million copy bestseller across the world. It is a heart-breakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the endurance of women.

This story is about what it was like to be a woman during World War II when women's stories were all too often forgotten or overlooked . . . Vianne and Isabelle Mauriac are two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals and passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path towards survival, love and freedom in war-torn France.

Kristin Hannah's The Nightingale is a novel for everyone, a novel for a lifetime.

'A rich, compelling novel of love, sacrifice and survival' - Kate Morton

'Movingly written and plotted with the heartless skill of a Greek tragedy, you'll keep turning the pages until the last racking sob' - Daily Mail

'I loved The Nightingale . . . great characters, great plots, great emotions, who could ask for more in a novel?' - Isabel Allende, bestselling author of The House of the Spirits

'A gripping tale of family, love, grief and forgiveness' - Sunday Express
