Romance stories really aren’t my cup of tea, but “Nightingale” is an enjoyable read. I think that a fan of the genre will get much more out of it than I did.
Esther Lange is a red cross nurse who had a one night stand with a man she did not love. Life is harsh for a pregnant single woman in the 1940′s WWII era. Esther moves in with Linus’ family, who only tolerate her because she is the mother of Linus’ child.
Esther receives a letter indicating that Linus is dead. She reaches out to Peter Hess, the medic who wrote to her, and finds that she is developing feelings for this mysterious man.
The book has a few twists and turns, but I wasn’t surprised by them. Having said that, the book delivers an interesting tale with some solid American history.
It’s a solid entertaining book and I give it a solid 3 out of 5 stars.
