“…Please, my beloved, don’t fret. Just stay strong and be there
for me when the time comes for me to leave this cage. You are my
sunlight in the dark and the ground beneath my feet. Because
of you, I can survive. I hope that you can find strength in me,
too, V. That because of me, you will find a way to be strong.”

—Antoine to Vianne in a letter
My Review

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah left me speechless and in tears. For two nights in a row, I sat crying as I finished the novel. There should be a warning on this book…


Oh, I tried reading this over my lunch hour…

Read the rest of my review.

  1. Oh my goodness, what an excellent pick! That book just broke my heart. It was a difficult read (emotionally) but I’m so glad I read it. Kristin Hannah is just phenomenal.

  2. Ooh, I’m really loving that quote. I’m a total sucker for books like these and I have something by this author already so I may check that out since I think I would like her writing!

  3. Anything by Kristin Hannah is a tearjerker! She writes with so much emotion. I’ve heard good things about this book, but I’m on the fence since I don’t really read war time books. I might reconsider though. Visiting from Saturday Situation.
