A romanticized look at World War II, focusing in particular on women's struggles in France under the German occupation. The writing is less compelling than I expected, with a heavy reliance on clichéd expressions and sentimental drama. But the bigger problem for me was the characterization of Isabel...

This isn't a review. These are my quick early morning thoughts. The Nightingale is an unforgettable story written so well your able to completely immerse yourself in it. I never read the author notes or book club questions, but I read it all. This book took me some time to finish. I started listenin...

I loved it. I liked the characters. I enjoyed trying to figure out who was telling the story. The story captivated me. There were heroes and villains. How people survived the occupation amazes me. Each does what they can to survive and fight. I don't want to say much because I don't want to ruin the...

Now, if you’ve read my other reviews, you’ll know I’ve reviewed The Book Thief. This book, however, is not for children (sorry, young adults), but for adults. It’s also set on the other side of the war and shows a different perspective on the lives of two sisters. The two sisters, Vianne and Isabell...

This is one of those unforgettable stories that will leave some a little choked up with its extraordinarily vivid and evocative scenes. The narrative wil...

This book is an excellent reminder why hate spewing blow hards should not be entrusted to to run the country. Bad things happen to good people. PS - this was the last audiobook given away at the now defunct Ford Audiobook Club. Thanks Ford. I don't know if your book club and giveaways ever inspired ...

What an awesome book. While listening to this book my library time ran out and had to wait for to become available again, when it did I decided to start at the beginning. WOW, what a book. Over 17k reviews at amazon 15k at goodreads. I'd read this book over and over again it was that good.

Look, I knew the second world war was crazy horrible. I knew millions of people died, I know people were killed in the most horrible ways. I knew all that. But there's a difference between knowing something happened and being transported into that time and experiencing it through someone else's eyes...

I finished this audiobook in tears. Matter of fact, there were quite a few tears as I listened to the heartbreaking story of two sisters, each doing what she believes best, one for family, the other for the country she loves. The quiet village of Carriveau will never be the same for either sister. F...
