Description

In love we find out who we want to be.In war we find out who we are.

FRANCE, 1939

In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front. She doesn't believe that the Nazis will invade France...but invade they do, in droves of marching soldiers, in caravans of trucks and tanks, in planes that fill the skies and drop bombs upon the innocent. When a German captain requisitions Vianne's home, she and her daughter must live with the enemy or lose everything. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates all around them, she is forced to make one impossible choice after another to keep her family alive.

Vianne's sister, Isabelle, is a rebellious eighteen-year-old girl, searching for purpose with all the reckless passion of youth. While thousands of Parisians march into the unknown terrors of war, she meets Gäetan, a partisan who believes the French can fight the Nazis from within France, and she falls in love as only the young can...completely. But when he betrays her, Isabelle joins the Resistance and never looks back, risking her life time and again to save others.

With courage, grace and powerful insight, bestselling author Kristin Hannah captures the epic panorama of WWII 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 lifetime.

author Hannah, Kristin,
author2-role "Vianne and Isabelle have always been close despite their differences. Younger, bolder sister Isabelle lives in Paris while Vianne lives a quiet and content life in the French countryside with her husband Antoine and their daughter. When World War II strikes and Antoine is sent off to fight, Vianne and Isabelle's father sends Isabelle to help her older sister cope. As the war progresses, it's not only the sisters' relationship that is tested, but also their strength and their individual senses of right and wrong. With life as they know it changing in unbelievably horrific ways, Vianne and Isabelle will find themselves facing frightening situations and responding in ways they never thought possible as bravery and resistance take different forms in each of their actions. Vivid and exquisite in its illumination of a time and place that was filled with great monstrosities, but also great humanity and strength, Kristin Hannah's novel will provoke thought and discussion that will have readers talking long after they turn the last page"--Provided by publisher., (10)aaf(52)caf(5)haf(8)oaf(3)gafpaf(7)saf(12)waf01-21-15ma3, (3)cafwaf01-23-17mi5, (OCoLC)881042089, -1- -- -, -1- -01-02-2018 12:16, -1- -01-06-2018 15:04, -1- -01-08-2018 10:33, -1- -01-08-2018 15:40, -1- -01-10-2018 10:25, -1- -01-11-2018 17:02, -1- -01-12-2018 10:21, -1- -01-19-2018 12:12, -1- -02-25-2017 16:34, -1- -03-11-2017 11:04, -1- -05-05-2017 9:17, -1- -05-19-2017 15:24, -1- -06-13-2017 11:50, -1- -09-12-2017 20:09, -1- -09-12-2017 20:11, -1- -09-20-2017 19:55, -1- -09-28-2017 16:01, -1- -09-28-2017 17:47, -1- -10-04-2017 19:41, -1- -10-06-2016 14:56, -1- -11-06-2017 18:04, -1- -11-17-2017 10:51, -1- -11-28-2017 19:43, -1- -11-30-2017 10:01, -1- -12-02-2017 14:51, -1- -12-04-2017 16:18, -1- -12-11-2017 14:00, -1- -12-13-2017 17:54, -1- -12-22-2016 16:20, -1- -12-22-2017 16:33, -1- -12-27-2017 11:25, -17- -01-07-2018 16:26, -17- -01-10-2018 14:15, .b1463590201-18-1811-21-14, .b1947666801-09-1801-13-17, 0312577222, 12/30/2017 SPINE NEEDS TO BE REPAIRED.-1- -12-27-2017 11:19, 14 audio discs (17.5 hr.) :digital, CD audio ;4 3/4 in., 813.54, 173000., 1939-1945, 2014033303, 440 pages ;25 cm., 5/24/17 CE/LH PLEASE SEND TO MMD FOR REPAIR WHEN HOLDS ARE FULFILLEDFri Sep 15 2017 11:49AM: IN TRANSIT from skline to a-1- -08-08-2017 17:14, 813/.54, 9780312577223, 9781427212672, 899152655903520858965560741966361661, Anti-Nazi movement, Anti-Nazi movement., Audiobooks., BTCTAengBTCTABDXWIMHQDOCLCFILCTOHTEFZHBIH7RECBXGO3VP@CN5O3IBIOCLCOOCLOCLCOOCLOCLCODACOCLGZSLTPTDS, CD F HANNA, Compact disc., Compact discs., DD14718Recorded Books, DLCengDLCrda, F HANNA, FRIENDS-1- -01-02-2018 9:31, FRIENDS-1- -01-08-2018 12:34, FRIENDS-1- -01-08-2018 13:34, FRIENDS-1- -01-10-2018 10:33, FRIENDS-1- -01-10-2018 11:08, FRIENDS-1- -01-11-2018 16:16, FRIENDS-1- -01-12-2018 15:06, FRIENDS-1- -06-23-2017 10:50, FRIENDS-1- -09-27-2017 15:30, FRIENDS-1- -11-04-2017 12:40, FRIENDS-1- -11-11-2017 11:57, FRIENDS-1- -11-30-2017 20:47, FRIENDS-1- -12-07-2017 11:14, FRIENDS-1- -12-11-2017 11:50, Fiction., First edition., France, France., Fri Nov 03 2017 11:54AM: IN TRANSIT from skline to caf-1- -11-03-2017 11:54, Hannah, Kristin,author., Hannah, Kristin., Historical fiction., Love stories., MAIN, Mon Jul 18 2016: $27.99 paid by .p1139697-1- -07-18-2016 20:30, Mon Sep 18 2017 11:22AM: IN TRANSIT from skline to caf-1- -09-18-2017 11:22, New York :St. Martin's Press,c2015., OCLC Holdings Updated 20150824, Producer, Laura Wilson., Read by Polly Stone., Romance fiction., Sat Jul 11 2015: Bill $27.99, lost by .p12423439Sat Jul 11 2015: Paid $27.99 and lost by p12423439-1- -07-11-2015 12:51, Sisters, Sisters., Stone, Polly(Narrator)|Narrator, Sun Jun 05 2016: $27.99 paid by .p12025756-1- -01-16-2018 10:16, The Nightingale /Kristin Hannah., The nightingale /Kristin Hannah., Thu Oct 12 2017 02:38PM: IN TRANSIT from skline to cafFRIENDS-1- -10-12-2017 14:39, Tue Sep 06 2016: Bill $27.99, lost by .p12813904-1- -09-06-2016 15:24, Unabridged., War stories., Wed Aug 10 2016: Bill $27.99, lost by .p10863266-1- -08-10-2016 14:11, World War (1939-1945), World War, 1939-1945, [New York] :Macmillan Audio,2015., audio discsd, audio fileCD audio, audios, digitaloptical, e-fr---, pcc, spoken wordspw, text, unmediated, volume
