The Nightingale - first ten chapters

So, is anyone reading The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah with us? Mary Beth has zoomed ahead and is really loving it. Helen started it and decided to finish her other book (Midnight at the Blackbird Cafe) which she is enjoying tremendously. Once she finishes that, she will dive in to The Nightingale.

So, we are ten chapters in and I can’t help but see parallels to our present day circumstances. It is no where near as dire as Occupied France, but there are lines to get into stores and certain items are next to impossible to find.

Isabelle has just joined the Resistance and is distributing pamphlets. I’m not sure I would be brave enough to do that. I have 20/20 hindsight knowing how horrific the SS were but I’m pretty sure Isabelle has an idea of how bad it would be if she were caught. Also, this is her dream - to be a hero and fight the enemy.

I’m trying to figure out if the woman in the present is Vianne or Isabelle. I know she has Isabel’s fake passport but is that a memento?

I’d love to know what you guys think and if you have any conversations you want to start - please leave them in the comments.

  • What is the next book? Or is there a list? I’m new to you and have enjoyed visiting.

    I too loved this book, with all its ups and downs. I remember (I listened to the book) when they took the little boy… I was driving home from work and I know my car neighbor was wondering why I was crying 😢. Lol
    Thanks for the review.
