Can’t put it down…

Once I got to the middle of this fantastic novel, the world around me slipped away…I was in the book, in the story, couldn’t even remember reading it…I was in the story…not a reader! I haven’t finished it yet because reluctantly I had to go to sleep…but I’m picking it up right now. Amazing story. One thing after another……

Must Read!!

This book right here is what great stories are all about!! It had me hooked from the beginning until the very last page. An amazing story to say the least!

Couldn’t put it down!

Absolutely beautifully written. I was hooked immediately. I could reread this book over and over.

Great read ..amazing story

Well written heart braking story about a broken family who end up in the wilds of Alaska in the 70's ...

Great Book, must read

Bought this book because many of the reviews said they couldn’t put this book down. Agree 100%. Highly recommended it.

Kinda predictable but still good

This book gave me new insight about those who live in Alaska, separated from the “outside” and the hardships that come with it. Also taps into post war trauma and how families have to rebuild, whatever that may look like. The story line was interesting enough that I read the book quickly although some of it was predictable. I still recommend the book, a great fall/winter read.

amazing story

i loved this book, i had no idea what was gonna happen next. amazing author i read two more books by her since reading this one.

Couldn’t put it down!

The things human beings are capable of enduring, amazing!

Very Good

It took me a couple chapters to get into the book, but once I was able to visualize the landscape and the characters I was hooked. Very well written, with good detail and thought provoking. I loved the relationship between the mother and daughter detailed the way it was. I just found this book very easy to follow, to visualize and it all made sense to me as well as kept my interest the whole time.

Didn't disappoint

I loved Kristin Hannah as a young adult and read many of her books. One or two I loved so much that I read them multiple times over the years since. This one didn't disappoint either and I would definitely recommend it.

One of the best books I've read!

An amazing story of heartbreak, love and triumph! Highly recommend!

Best Book I've read in years

I was recommended this book from a avid book reader co-worker and couldn't put it down. Kristin Hannah's story telling is amazing and has become my favorite author. I loved the story, it has love, suspense, heartbreak & you feel for the characters.

Great characters, my favorite Kristin Hannah book.

This book sucked me in, I couldn’t put it down. I fell in love with the characters and the town.

All the feels

I could not put this one down and could not stop thinking about it once I finished.

Loved it

Loved this book. I love a book that makes me want to skip every thing else and keep reading. It had me gripped from the beginning. I also shared this book with my mom who I also caught reading non stop. One of the best books I read in 2020!

Loved it!

I haven't been this wrapped up in a book in a LONG time! I loved the story and it was beautifully written. I am planning on reading all of Kristin Hannah's other books.

Loved it

All I can say is, wow. This book was really good. Couldn’t put it down.

Great story!!!

Such a wonderful tale of adventure, love and perseverance. I didn’t want it to end. Highly recommend - I enjoyed it!!!


I could not put this book down!! I have not enjoyed a book this much in a long time!! And I read a lot! I've spent time in Alaska out back and she describes the lay of the land and the remarkable people that live there as I experienced it! A MUST read!

Best book I’ve read this year

This book is amazing. The characters are so real and the narration is so relatable. I couldn’t put it down.

Amazing read

I flew through this book! Absolutely couldn't put it down. This is one you'll wish continued on, but all great stories must come to an end. Definitely one to reread and you'll always gain or observe something new with each time.

Love this book!

One of my favorite books for sure. The love that is written throughout this book is very thought provoking in all its twisted, horrible, heartwarming, and suspenseful ways.

Great book.

This was in the top 2 of my favorite books ever! Great read!

Very thought provoking

I knew that I would love this book, just didn’t know how much! One of the most thought provoking, energizing books I’ve read in a long time. Well worth the read!


“The Nightingale” made me want to read more of Kristen Hannah’s work. But this one wore me out. She is a talented writer & kept me engrossed. Still there were too many too incredible wrong turns so I won’t be submitting to this type emotional torture again.
