Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

NightingaleTitle to be discussed: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah.  Date of meeting, January 9, 6:30 p.m.  Summary: "France, 1939. In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front. She doesn't believe that the Nazis will invade France... but invade they do. When a German captain requisitions Vianne's home, she and her daughter must live with the enemy or lose everything. Vianne's sister, Isabelle, is a rebellious eighteen-year-old girl, searching for purpose with all the reckless passion of youth. She meets Gäetan, a partisan who believes the French can fight the Nazis from within France, and she falls in love as only the young can...completely. But when he betrays her, Isabelle joins the Resistance and never looks back, risking her life to save others. '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 war-torn France; a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women."
