1. Sadly I am a monolingual English speaker, however......... 2. I do try to learn some greetings, polite forms, and commonly used phrases when I travel to countries that are not primarily English speaking. I have some French, Spanish, German, and Icelandic.

gradcat @Andrew65 @EadieB @Tove_Reads @Crazeedi I‘ve started early as well, because I‘m (sort of) caught up in other areas of my life ? I‘m loving this one because we‘re getting insight into René‘s life. 1d
kspenmoll Are you enjoying the audio? I have read the first two- wondering how audible is for you? 7h

The narrator uses humor to offset the grinding, unrelenting uncertainty of living as a resident immigrant in France. The characters feel real . There isn‘t much of a plot. It was engaging for a novel where most of the action takes place off the page.

Not as good as her other book “The Room on Rue Amelie”. Not sure if I like where the ending is going. Update- the ending was better than I thought.

Beautifully written...Sensitive subject matter given a modern life. The author researched the story through a piece of history and then created a story based on fact but pure fiction. Sarah‘s story is haunting. I can see how Julia‘s tunnel vision to dig up as much as she could to learn and have the story told was all consuming. She was a little selfish about it at times . I liked the full circle moment at the end .

Stacypatrice Such a great book! 3d
Jody3 Stacypatrice: It‘s on Netflix. I was debating whether or not to watch the movie. 3d

The Nightingale | Kristin Hannah

captivating, raw and emotional book about two sisters during World War II.
The book follows Vianne, the older sister, married with child, and the younger rebellious sister, Isabelle. Although sisters they could not be more opposite, and living worlds apart. This book is a tough emotional read about what life was really like for French civilians. Would highly recommend this book to those who love historical fiction.

lissafraser I have to say that I loved this book. It was by far one of the best books that I have ever read!! Although I loved everything about it. My favorite part about the book was the family relationships. Kristin Hannah brings such depth to both of the sisters. I would recommend this book to anyone. But especially people that love historical novels.

Cfmamareads @lissafraser totally agree! I absolutely loved it. So heart wrenching, but she did such a great job. 18h
