Is it possible for me to stop writing about how long it's been since I've posted anything...or how fast the time is flying? I think I've finally reached that point where I can say YES! I will not write (type) those words anymore on here. 😉

I haven't posted anything or read others' blogs mostly because I've been reading another book by my new favorite author...Kristin Hannah. This time it's The Nightingale. It is a huge paperback, 570 pages, and I hate it when I have to put it down to do anything else! The story of two sisters in France during WWII and their immense struggles.

This book is similar to Winter Garden in a few ways...women's stories during war in their homelands, sister conflicts. 

I can't say which one I "like" the most. Both kept me so involved in the story and characters...and I haven't even finished The Nightingale yet.

I've never read stories about both the suffering and strength of European women during WWII. Very enlightening and sad...and yet, these aren't books that are difficult to read...

If any of you have read anything by Kristin Hannah, please tell me about it. Thank goodness, she's written quite a few books, so I can keep on going. 😀

 (My library didn't have this, so I bought it from Amazon. I love the library, but also love buying books sometimes, too!)

“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.”
