  The Nightingale has easily found its way to one of my favorite books to recommend. Although some may feel daunted by the over page book, it is worth every page. The characters are well written and relatable. Isabelle is definitely one of my all time favorite heroes/5(16).   Act 3, Scene 5 expresses some imagery in reference to the theme there is good and bad to everything: JULIET Wilt thou be gone? it is not yet near day: It was the nightingale, and not the lark, That pierced the fearful hollow of thine ear; Nightly she sings on yon pomegranate-tree: Believe me, love, it was the nightingale.

Kristin Hannah’s The Nightingale tells the story of Vianne (Rossignol) Mauriac and Isabelle Rossignol, two French sisters who resist the occupying Nazi forces during World War II (WWII) by hiding Jewish children so they are not taken to concentration camps (the Holocaust) and by leading the escape of Allied pilots whose planes have been shot down over France.

The Nightingale covers five primary periods in the lives of Vianne (Rossignol) Mauriac and Isabelle Rossignol. 1. The Early War. When Vianne’s husband, Antoine, is conscripted to fight for France against the attacking Germans, Vianne and their daughter, Sophie, try to continue normal life in Carriveau without him, imagining that he will return soon. Discussion Questions 1. The Nightingale opens with an intriguing statement that lays out one of the major themes of the book: “If I have learned anything in this long life of mine, it is this: In love we find out who we want to be; in war we find out who we are.” What do you think the narrator means by this? Is love the ideal and war the reality? How does war change the way these.

Cope has once again brought readers back into the elvish /5(12). I loved Kristin Hannah's The has captured a particular slice of French life during World War II with wonderful details and drama. But what I loved most about the novel was the relationship between the two sisters and Hannah's exploration of what we do in moments of great challenge.

Code-named the Nightingale, Isabelle will rescue many before she's captured. Meanwhile, Viann’s journey from passive to active resistance is less dramatic but no less wrenching. Hannah vividly demonstrates how the Nazis, through starvation, intimidation and barbarity both casual and calculated, demoralized the French, engineering a community.
