Some books have a way of completely engulfing you, conquering your imagination - the cities, the era, the characters, the dialogue. The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah is one of those novels. Set in the late 1940s it tells the stories of the unsung heroes of World War II - the women. Utterly moved, it's been days since I finished the last page and began my next book (Dark Places by Gillian Flynn - worlds apart from mid-century Europe) and still I find myself thinking about the story and the female protagonists in an unfamiliar France. Despite the presence of war, love was found in the safety of the woods. With this Maui shoot up my sleeve I couldn't find a better way to live through the story a little longer and share with you a few excerpts that I found particularly hard to forget.
