Read It & Eat It Book Club - The Nightingale - Wed. @ 4:30

Read It & Eat It Book Club - The Nightingale - Wed. @ 4:30nightingale
Join us for a lively discussion of "The Nightingale" by Kristin Hannah.

“Kristin Hannah captures the epic panorama of World War II with courage, grace, and powerful insight, and illuminates an intimate part of history seen seldom: the women's war.

The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion, and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France; a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women.”
