    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.

    Herzzerreißend

    Ein tolles Buch über starke Frauen. Unweigerlich stellt man sich die Frage, wie man selbst wohl gehandelt hätte.
    Eine absolute Empfehlung!

    A glimpse into the worse years France

    This fiction throughout so many details made me realize what history books cannot teach, ie. the reality of everyday’s life throughout French nazi, anti-jew and collaborative years and how lucky we are not to have been part of it. We all further need to remember, so we make sure it never happens again.

    Heldinnen im 2. Weltkrieg

    Spannende Geschichte zweier Schwestern im 2. Weltkrieg in Frankreich. Die "Männerstimme" der Sprecherin ist seltsam.

    Die andere Seite des Krieges

    Berührend erzählte Geschichte über das Schicksal zweier Schwestern, die einerseits sehr verschieden sind, eich andererseits doch mehr ähneln, als sie zugeben wollen. Besonders gefallen hat mir, dass Viannes Geschichte eine selten beleuchtete Seite des Kriegs darstellt. Obwohl ich zu Anfang ihre Motivation als schlechte Begründung für schweigende Zustimmung hielt, habe ich sie im Laufe der Geschichte immer besser nachvollziehen können. Viannes langsame Veränderung kam so auch als positive Überraschung.
    Meine einzige Kritik an der Sprecherin ist, dass sie die französischen Namen zu Englisch ausspricht.

    A Worldwar II Story of a Different Kind

    Kristin Hannah’s “The Nightingale” is simply a great book. It is a deeply moving and haunting tale of the heroism of two sisters in war torn France. It truthfully captures the incredible cruelty and misery of world war II, but it does so by watching the suffering and the despair of everyday people and how some of them show heroism and compassion in their struggle to survive.

    It is a heartbreaking story and Kristin Hannah manages to tell it in gripping prose, full of emotion, passion and its magic puts a spell on you. This is partly Polly Stone’s merit, she does an outstanding job reading it.

    “The Nightingale” is the story of Isabelle and Vianne in German-occupied France. They lost their mother at a young age and their father, an estranged alcoholic, rejects them completely. Completely different in character and ideals Isabelle and Vianne set out on separate paths to fight the Nazi regime. Isabelle joins the Resistance and smuggles downed allied pilots through the Pyrenees to Spain, while Vianne tries to hide Jewish orphans to save them from certain death.

    This is not just a good book, it is an important book. It confronts us with the ugliest face of man, but it also shows us beauty and love.

    Sehr schöne, traurige Geschichte

    Dieses Hörbuch hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Die Thematik - Widerstand gegen die Nazis im Zweiten Weltkrieg - ist alles andere als leichte Kost. Die Protagonistinnen werden realistisch dargestellt, was die Geschichte sehr glaubwürdig macht. Auch die Stimme der Sprecherin empfand ich als sehr angenehm. Unbedingte Leseempfehlung.

    Great and heartbreaking story

    Although I had decided a long time ago that I wouldn't burden myself with WW2 stories anymore, I gave this book a chance. And I am glad I did. But we warned: It will break your heart in so many ways.
    Soon all of the war time memories will be lost and so few women in my surroundings talked about their experiences during the war. So it's a good thing that someone captured some of those terrifying memories for generations to come.
    My only problem was with the speaker. She switched between a strong American accent and a fake French accent which felt very unpleasant but even worse was that I sometimes had the feeling that Apple's Siri was reading this story to me. Not really what I am looking for in an audio book.
