This story is about what it was like to be a woman during World War II when women's stories were all too often forgotten or overlooked... Vianne and Isabelle Mauriac are two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals and passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path towards survival, love and freedom in war-torn France.

Kristin Hannah's The Nightingale is a novel for everyone, a novel for a lifetime.
