Flipping the last page of The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, a best-selling in New York Time, I decided to write a review about this book immediately. In the beginning, The Nightingale brought us to the peaceful village called Carriveau in France before the invasion of Germany of World War II. The story focuses mainly on the sisters, named Vianne and Isabelle Mauriac. Each sister has their own belief in life, love, and bravery. Vianne struggles to protect her children under the billet of a German soldier when every second is a danger and has to make difficult choices to keep her family alive. Isabelle falls in love with Gaetan, a partisan who believed France can win the war within the country. And when Gaetan betrays her, she joins the Resistance, risking her life to save others. After reading this book, I love that the book shows us what women’s war is and breaks the opinion about women being useless in wartime. Each sister contributed in different ways but we cannot deny that they have a strong soul, the sisters have won their ego, weaknesses and grown a lot through the war. Nevertheless, the narrative at first is quite slow, making the readers feel bored. To sum up, with courage, grace, and powerful insight, The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah is worth reading.
