When Willa Jansson inexplicably spots an old family friend, eccentric mythologist Professor Arthur Kenna, seemingly holding a stranger at gunpoint in downtown San Francisco, she has no choice but to take action, snaring the elderly professor and spiriting him away to a cabin in the mountains to hide him from the police until she can get to the bottom of the situation. Arthur, it seems, stands accused of the murder of his assistant, a shaman who was participating in an unusual computer experiment just before he was gruesomely disemboweled at the legendary magnetic “power spot” at Bowl Rock. As Willa and her PI friend Edward Hershey desperately search the crime scene for clues that will clear the professor’s name, they encounter a series of characters as wild and strange—and potentially deadly—as the woods itself.
In love we find out who we want to be.
In war we find out who we are.
With courage, grace and powerful insight, bestselling author Kristin Hannah captures the epic panorama of WWII and illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the women’s war. The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France--a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women. It is a novel for everyone, a novel for a lifetime.
