Nightingale: Recommends

The Lake House by Kate Morton

The Lake House

This is a multi generational book where parts reside in WW2 as well.  Morton's style incorporates a little more suspense and mystery than Hannah, but they both have beautiful prose and a compelling story.

American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld

American Wife


This novel is more present day than Nightingale.  However, Sittenfeld's prose style reminds me of Hannah's.  It is detail oriented without being heavy with detail.  It focuses on female character's trials and tribulations.

Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah

Winter Garden


This was the first Kristin Hannah novel I would recommend prior to Nightingale's publication.  It is heart breakingly beautiful so be prepared for a tear jerker.  It is complex and haunting, and one of Hannah's best.

Is there any novel you would add to this list?
