Book Club: January

Happy Book Club Day!
A new year, a new round of books! But first...December's book club discussion! This time of year we love to enjoy the somewhat carefree schedule of winter break, and enjoy a warm snuggle on the couch with a fun holiday read. We left December's book club choice up to you with an open read? What fun book did you cozy up to in December? Was it one of the holiday ones we suggested? 

And just a recap of all our book club reads from 2015...

February | March | April | May | June | July | August | September | October | November | December |

This month's pick is one that has been on our bedside for awhile. While it came out last year, we just love everything by Kristin Hannah, and are so excited to read it for our first pick of 2016! 

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

From the Back Cover: 
In love we find out who we want to be.

In war we find out who we are.

FRANCE, 1939

In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front. She doesn't believe that the Nazis will invade France … but invade they do, in droves of marching soldiers, in caravans of trucks and tanks, in planes that fill the skies and drop bombs upon the innocent. When a German captain requisitions Vianne's home, she and her daughter must live with the enemy or lose everything. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates all around them, she is forced to make one impossible choice after another to keep her family alive.

Vianne's sister, Isabelle, is a rebellious eighteen-year-old girl, searching for purpose with all the reckless passion of youth. While thousands of Parisians march into the unknown terrors of war, she meets Gäetan, a partisan who believes the French can fight the Nazis from within France, and she falls in love as only the young can … completely. But when he betrays her, Isabelle joins the Resistance and never looks back, risking her life time and again to save others.

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.

Happy Reading!
