Review The Amazon Spotlight Pick for February 2015: Kristin Hannah
is a popular thriller writer with legions of fans, but her latest novel, The
Nightingale, soars to new heights (sorry) and will earn her even more ecstatic
readers. Both a weeper and a thinker, the book tells the story of two French
sisters – one in Paris, one in the countryside – during WWII; each is crippled
by the death of their beloved mother and cavalier abandonment of their father;
each plays a part in the French underground; each finds a way to love and
forgive. If this sounds sudsy. . . well, it is, a little. . . but a melodrama
that combines historical accuracy (Hannah has said her inspiration for
Isabelle was the real life story of a woman who led downed Allied soldiers on
foot over the Pyrenees) and social/political activism is a hard one to resist.
Even better to keep you turning pages: the central conceit works – the book is
narrated by one of the sisters in the present, though you really don’t know
until the very end which sister it is. Fast-paced, detailed, and full of
romance (both the sexual/interpersonal kind and the larger, trickier romance
of history and war), this novel is destined to land (sorry, again) on the top
of best sellers lists and night tables everywhere. — Sara Nelson Read more
