The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
The Literary Circle will meet at the home of Mary Louise Selzer this month, to discuss The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, lead by Connie Davis.
We welcome new members, so if you are interested reading and would like to join, give us a call.
In a quiet village in France, Vianne says good-bye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads to the front. She doesn't believe that the Nazis will invade France, but invade they do. When a German captain requisitions Vianne's home, she and her daughter must live with the enemy or lose everything. Without food, money, nor hope, as danger escalates all around them, Vianne is forced to make one impossible choice after another to keep her family alive.
Her 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 Gaetan, a partisan who believes the French can fight the Nazis from within France, and she falls in love as only the young can... completey. But when he betrays her, Isabelle joins the Resistance and never looks back, risking everything she has to save her fellow countrymen-even her own life.
I have heard this is a three hanky book. If interested in knowing more about our group, contact Mary Louise Selzer at MLSelzer@comcast.net, or 363-1618.
