Book Cover of The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

It’s 1939 in France and Vianne doesn’t believe the Nazis will invade France, but she and her daughter are forced to live with a German captain who takes over their home while Vianne’s husband is fighting on the front. This book tells an often-forgotten side of World War II – the story of the women left behind who had to struggle to keep their families alive, often doing unspeakable things. This would make a wonderful book club discussion book.
