Free download The Nightingale æ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Kristin Hannah º 5 review E and powerful insight bestselling author Kristin Hannah captures the epic panorama of World War II and illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen the women’s war The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters separated by years and experience by ideals passion and circumstance each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival love and freedom in German occupied war torn France a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women It is a novel for everyone a novel for a lifetim 45 stars I didn t mind that the story was slow because I thoroughly enjoyed the writing and was engaged throughout the book Hannah writes so descriptively that it made me enjoy the journey and really painted the atmosphere of France Each line was rich in detail and you could tell had been researched And yes I m one of the many people who cried reading the ending lolWhat would have made me fully embrace the book is if both romances had been developed better and the characterization had been stronger Isabelle still felt like a caricature of a rebellious girl to me with no other ualities even though she was such a badass in the end I also think if the book is going to focus on women during WW2 Hannah could have emphasized the sister relationship better instead of making them disjointed for most of the story even if just thinking about the other sister or showing memories of them throughout the book Since the romance wasn t that well developed we could have used that time for the sister relationship instead to really hone in on the theme and purpose of this book Nonetheless I still enjoyed this book and its beautiful writing I will say though that I cried much harder in All the Light We Cannot See and Lovely War so maybe that s why I hesitate to fully give it 5 stars because I know I am capable of tears
