You often read about the horrors of the inhumane treatment of Jews in WWII novels. “The Nightingale” takes you to the less-told story of those who survived in the midst of these atrocities. How they coped, the loss of friendships and lives, questioning their own methods of survival.
Set in France, it gives a unique peek at yet another difficult side to war. And, it gives insight to the unsung heroes that put themselves at risk to save others at the expense of family relationships. It’s an engaging, thoughtful read. Put it on your summer vacation must-read list.
