The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah | Conversation Starters
The Nightingale is set in France during the World War II. It is about family relationships, loss, grief, friendship,
and life during the war.
Two sisters, Vianne and Isabelle, are as different from each other as possible. Vianne appears
passive and traditional
while Isabelle is impulsive and careless. As the story progresses, we see how circumstances changes the two sisters,
who both perform a large role
in saving several people during the war. Isabelle voluntarily joins the French Resistance, while bravery is thrust upon Vianne,
who saves Jewish children.
It’s a heartwarming story about the hardships women faced and women’s role during the war.
