The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

Nightingale

A book loved by Michelle Obama.

We have a reading group set of The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah to give away.

About the book

Two sisters. One must be brave. One should be afraid.

Despite their differences, sisters Viann and Isabelle have always been close.

Younger, bolder Isabelle lives in Paris while Viann is content with life in the French countryside with her husband Antoine and their daughter.

But when the Second World War strikes, Antoine is sent off to fight and Viann finds herself isolated so Isabelle is sent by their father to help her. As the war progresses, the sisters’ relationship and strength is tested.

Please apply by 15 August, telling us why your reading group would like to win the set.

In the run up to publication of her autobiography, Becoming (published 13 November), Michelle Obama has been speaking to the American Library Association about her and her family’s love of books. Find out more about the books loved by Michelle Obama.
