In love we find out who we want to be.In war we find out who we are.FRANCE, 1939In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front.  She doesn’t believe that the Nazis will invade France…but invade they do, in droves of marching soldiers, in caravans of trucks and tanks, in planes that fill the skies and drop bombs upon the innocent. When a German captain requisitions Vianne’s home, she and her daughter must live with the enemy or lose everything. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates all around them, she is forced to make one impossible choice after another to keep her family alive.Vianne’s sister, Isabelle, is a rebellious eighteen-year-old girl, searching for purpose with all the reckless passion of youth.  While thousands of Parisians march into the unknown terrors of war, she meets Gäetan, a partisan who believes the French can fight the Nazis from within France, and she falls in love as only the young can…completely.  But when he betrays her, Isabelle joins the Resistance and never looks back, risking her life time and again to save others.With courage, grace and powerful insight, bestselling author Kristin Hannah captures the epic panorama of WWII and illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the women’s war.   The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France--a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women.  It is a novel for everyone, a novel for a lifetime.

I cried out loud when Isabelle's father sacrificed himself for her but it's just the beginning. All the chapter followed are just the same heartbreaking. At first, I thought it was Isabelle who turned old and lonely, with his only son, Julien, which is her father's name. But when it revealed that it was Vianne, and that Isabelle was died right away after she met Gaëtan, it ached my heart. She didn't even have a chance to really have a true love story with Gaëtan, and yet she died in his arms, which was really sweet and also heart breaking too. But anyway, I loved how Kristin Hannah managed to make the ending scene so heartbreaking, and I hope the best for her another works.

I found the book much riveting. I finished reading it in a day from when I bought it. I really began to affectionate towards Beck, and I lost hope about Antoine. But it all went well at the end. You'll be so drawn to the book, a tale of two sisters, about women's war, that you wouldn't be able to set it down. A marvelous history and drama, romance and tragedy, an incredible sanctuary that shows the true colors of Life. A living, breathing work of art. C'est super et belle!

Vianne Mauriac left the cool, stucco-walled kitchen and stepped out into her front yard.

family for three hundred years. Aged to a dozen shades of gray, it was a two-story house with blue-shuttered windows that overlooked the orchard. Ivy climbed up the two chimneys and covered the bricks beneath. Only seven acres of the original parcel were left. The other two hundred had been sold off over the course of two centuries as her family’s fortune dwindled. Seven acres was plenty for Vianne. She couldn’t imagine needing more.
Vianne closed the door behind them. In the kitchen, copper and cast-iron pots and pans hung from an iron rack above the stove. Lavender and rosemary and thyme hung in drying bunches from the exposed timber beams of the ceiling. A copper sink, green

If I have learned anything in this long life of mine, it is this: In love we find out who we want to be; in war we find out who we are.
