QUOTE OF THE MONTH
I saw this scrolling through Facebook and totally agree…..
MY FAVOURITE BOOK OF THE MONTH
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah has my vote as my favourite book of the month. I’ve read two of her other books The Great Alone and The Four Winds. Below is the reivew I wrote on Goodreads about The Nightingale.
If you don’t read any other book this year you must read The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. I have read several of her books and with each one I am amazed at her writing skill. The reader is drawn into the story and you are there! I was there with Isabelle, I was there with Vianne. I was left speechless, emotional and shocked but it was so worth it.
I even had to go for a run with only a chapter to go to gather my thoughts.
The story set in France in WW2 is a tribute to all those women and men who fought to save their fellow citizens. Isabelle, determined, feisty and headstrong is the heroine. Both she and Vianne like many during that time, experienced more trauma than one person should in a lifetime. I am not articulate in this review but this is a must read. I was in tears at the end but can’t wait to re-read it. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
