The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ stars for this meaningful and memorable story

Although the book is fiction, the events are real.

The story is one of history, bravery, love and sacrifice.

Main characters: sister's Vianne and Isabelle 

Vianne the older  responsible sister and Isabelle the younger more rebellious sister are very different but strong women that face  the challenges of German occupied France during WWII.  You will be taken on a long journey from when the war first started to its end. You will see how the sisters cope very differently to the same events. There are so many emotions while reading this. It's painful and heartbreaking at times but  it is also inspiring and uplifting.  I highly recommend this book.

Also the movie comes out in 2019!
Thanks,
