Books Like The Nightingale

Sharing is caring!

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah is an unforgettable historical fiction novel about the experience of two sisters in France during World War II.

It blends two different true events together in a way that gave us a new perspective about life in France throughout the early 40s.

While an older sister is forced to host a German officer in her home, her younger rebellious sister joins the resistance movement and makes heroic efforts to help British and American soldiers who parachute into France after their planes are disabled.
