The Nightingale {Book Review}

It’s possible that Fridays are about to become book review days. I have been inhaling stories lately – really just remembering and rediscovering my love for reading. And after finishing The Nightingale by Kristen Hannah, I am SO moved.

I would categorize this book as historical fiction. Taking place in France during WWII, it tells an incredible story of brave women who play their part in resisting the Nazi regime. I love great story telling, and for some reason have always enjoyed learning about WWII, including the effects it had on European cities and countries. While it is fiction, it is based on true stories of smuggling stranded Allied fighters over the Pyrenees and into Spain. I even dug in a bit to find out what that freedom trail entailed, and you can read about that here.

I admit to you here that this was my first read by Kirsten Hannah, though many people have told me about her for a long time. And it absolutely won’t be my last. Let me know in the comments if you have another favorite book by Ms. Hannah!
