From David's list on Nazis and the threat they posed in the past and today.
Kristin Hannah is a favorite author of mine. She takes world events and brings them down to the human side of the story. With massive elements swirling around the story, it is real humans that must try to cope with the horror of war.
The Nightingale is the tale of two French sisters set against the Second World War. One sister only wants to survive and keep her child safe and tried to cooperate with the Nazi invaders. The other sister joins the underground resistance, determined that fighting the enemy will shorten the war.

What is this book about?
Soon to be a major motion picture, The Nightingale is a multi-million copy bestseller across the world. It is a heart-breakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the endurance of women.
This story is about what it was like to be a woman during World War II when women's stories were all too often forgotten or overlooked . . . Vianne and Isabelle Mauriac are two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals and passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path towards survival, love and freedom in war-torn France.
