The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
“For those who liked ‘All the Light We Cannot See,’ I highly recommend ‘The Nightingale.’ Also a heartfelt story of World War II, this novel focuses on two sisters with very different temperaments and the choices they make during the French Resistance. Hannah’s previous novels, while all quite good in my opinion, are often classified in lighter terms such as ‘chick lit’ or ‘women’s fiction.’ This book falls solidly in the literary fiction genre and is a beautifully-written and haunting novel about hard choices in desperate times.”
