Two sisters, Vianne and Isabelle, must learn to embrace their differences as they endure WWII in France. Before “The Nightingale,” I’d never read about citizens who had to share their homes with German soldiers. Hannah’s writing of that tense relationship was my favourite part. This book is very readable – I honestly couldn’t put it down. But it’s also very sentimental and ties up too neatly.
