The Nightingale / Kristin Hannah

Call number: FIC HAN

How two French sisters survived the onslaught of World War II is the subject of this new novel by Kristin Hannah (Firefly Lane; Winter Garden). After Vianne Mauriac’s husband departs for the front, she is left alone to care for herself and their child. When the Nazis overrun their country, that task becomes infinitely more challenging and dangerous. Meanwhile, the wartime travails of her teenage sister Isabelle are complicated by her reckless love for a French partisan. When he betrays her, she throws herself with near abandon into the Resistance fight for liberation. A penetrating historical novel. (From B&N)
