A #1 New York Times bestseller, Wall Street Journal Best Book of the Year, and soon to be a major motion picture, this unforgettable novel of love and strength in the face of war has enthralled a generation.
With courage, grace, and powerful insight, bestselling author Kristin Hannah captures the epic panorama of World War II 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.

The Amazon Spotlight Pick for February 2015: Kristin Hannah is a popular thriller writer with legions of fans, but her latest novel, The Nightingale, soars to new heights (sorry) and will earn her even more ecstatic readers. Both a weeper and a thinker, the book tells the story of two French sisters – one in Paris, one in the countryside – during WWII; each is crippled by the death of their beloved mother and cavalier abandonment of their father; each plays a part in the French underground; each finds a way to love and forgive. If this sounds sudsy. . . well, it is, a little. . . but a melodrama that combines historical accuracy (Hannah has said her inspiration for Isabelle was the real life story of a woman who led downed Allied soldiers on foot over the Pyrenees) and social/political activism is a hard one to resist. Even better to keep you turning pages: the central conceit works – the book is narrated by one of the sisters in the present, though you really don’t know until the very end which sister it is. Fast-paced, detailed, and full of romance (both the sexual/interpersonal kind and the larger, trickier romance of history and war), this novel is destined to land (sorry, again) on the top of best sellers lists and night tables everywhere. -- Sara NelsonPrice: $10.00

Most Dependable Everbearing Variety If we were limited to one Everbear- ing variety we would choose Gem both for the home garden and as a money crop. It is not as good as Mastodon or jd i Green Mountain for sttk the spring crop, but as an Everbearer it is the most consistent pro- ducer of summer and fall berries. Gem makes a rather small plant but a very vig- orous growth. The plants start bearing early in the summer and continue until ; freezing weather. The berries are the most attractive of all the Everbearers, average quite large in size and are a beautiful light red in color. The quality is rather tart but well liked by most con- sumers. Gem has been the best seller we have had on local markets because of its attractive appearance. It ships well and retains its beauty so that on wholesale markets also Gem brings top prices. Without hesitation we recommend Gem for all who want to try Everbearers in their gardens. No grower should start in with Everbearers in a big way until some testing has been done but we thoroughly believe that Gem has many possibilities as a profit maker in various sections of the country where Ever- bearers have not been grown for profit. We have a nice stock of Gem plants this year. Let your orders come. Price list, page 35.
