Fantastic book

Quick read, couldn’t put it down!

I Loved This Novel

A page turner for me. I never put this book down. I was hooked from the outset, and had been wanting to grasp this horrible time in the world.

Recommend as courage and suffering.

Believable courage and suffering during world war.


THE BEST best historical fiction book I've ever read


The novel really give you an understanding of when world war broke out back in our time. In this case the book is being taken place in France. Was introduced to this author by discovering this novel The Nightingale. A staple to have while being a renounced author.

Loved it!

Such an amazing book! This one will stay with me forever! Two sisters play opposite roles in WWII. One lives for the safety of her daughter while the other wants to fight back at the regime. They are both brave women who fought their own secret battles to survive the only way the could! I cried a million tears reading the last pages!

The Nightingale: was a very, very great read.

Isabelle, rescued fugitives from Hitler, what a nail grinding book. I could not put it down until I finish what happened next. Blew me away. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a mystery. 🥰🤗

Not my favorite

I liked the descriptions on some of it but there are other parts that she didn't actually describe anything, she the author just assumed you should know it. Like I am not sure what certain parts looked like, and the characters were not all defined well. So, I'm not sure if it was a good book, one I would give to my friends or not, for a discussion I would.

My favorite book. Had me on my seat. Kristen Hannah is a amazing writer

You will fall in love with this book. Had me on my seat. Definitely a tear jerker

Over all really good book

Trigger warning: there is a rape scene, although mild in description and quickly over with. The author was overly descriptive the first couple chapters and it bored me (literally every time a character was introduced you got a detailed description of what they were wearing and it wasn’t remotely relevant), but after a few chapters it got really good and I couldn’t put it down. My only other complaint was that the story is told from multiple points of view with no clear indication of who’s point of view your reading from readily apparent by chapter title, you have to go by context alone. This book made me cry multiple times and I can’t remember the last time a book did that. Over all I really enjoyed it.


Bought in good condition but was pleasantly surprise that it doesnt have any rubbed edges or tear. Cant wait to read it

I could not put it down!

A remarkable blend of history, suspense and love. Make sure you have dedicated time to read it when you start because you won’t want to do anything else.

Worth every page

The Nightingale has easily found its way to one of my favorite books to recommend. Although some may feel daunted by the over 300 page book, it is worth every page. The characters are well written and relatable. Isabelle is definitely one of my all time favorite heroes.

Another Powerful Story by Kristin Hannah

This is the story of two French sisters and their experiences during World War 2. It is not pretty. World War 2 was horrific even for those who were not Jews. Although this is a work of fiction, the people and events are not. Kristen Hannah has a most engrossing style of writing and is able to transport the reader to a time and place that actually existed This is also .a story of love, courage and sacrifice and a most worthwhile read.

The Nightingale is extraordinary and important.

This is a book that I will remember for a long time. Impossible to put down.

Read This Book

One of the best historical fiction books I've ever read. And it's even better knowing it was inspire by true events. A book of loss, hardships, violence, strength, girl power, sacrifice and love. A must read.

New Author for Me

One of the best books I have ever read...I hated to have it end. Looking forward to reading more from this author

SO good!!! One of the BEST!!!

Definitely one of the best books I’ve ever read & one of the few I actually want to read again!! HIGHLY recommend even if you don’t normally read the genre.

One of the best books I've ever read. A must read

I loved it!

This is probably one of my favorite books of all time!

I haven't read a book I loved this much in a long time! Just outstanding! Will probably read again a

Written very well. Enjoyed this book very much!

The Nightingale is my new favorite book

I just LOVED The Nightingale. It was heartbreaking! When I realized that I was almost finished reading the book I took my time because I just did not want it to end. The Nightingale is a MUST READ

Amazing book!

I am reading this slowly because I don't want to come to the end of this beautiful book. Having been born at this exact time (9/42), & my father being in the US Army "over there" at this exact time, in France & Germany, I seem to have a passionate appetite for books like this. At times, I feel like I'd want to just sit down & cry my eyes out. So many innocents killed! Even the German soldiers, some of whom were merely boys when they were conscripted & ripped away from their families against their will. Not only the Jews, but the French, the Germans & others were victims of the insane Hitler & the Nazis. This book details not only the horror, the deprivation, the loss everywhere at this time in history, but the incredible bravery & daring of so many people on all sides. The human spirit is incredibly tough!!

A fabulous read which I will read many more times.

I read this fabulous novel in 1 1/2 days and when I finished it, I could have begun it again but I passed it on to my daughter in law because I loved it so much and we have the same reading tastes. Packed with history and intrigue and adventure; it's totally satisfying and a mystery to the end.
