Quick take

What are we capable of when survival is the only thing that matters?

Why I love it

"In love we find out who we want to be; in war we find out who we are." Our first title chosen By Member Request, _The Nightingale_ is a beautifully written WWII historical fiction. Two sisters bravely face the heartbreaking challenges of daily life as France is invaded by the Nazis. The younger joins the resistance; the older tries to save her family. It's a moving portrait of the effects of wartime on these female characters —mothers and daughters, sisters and wives— their strength, and the sacrifices they make for family and country. Ultimately, the book forces us to confront the question: What are we capable of when survival is the only thing that matters?
