Author of the Nightingale
I really enjoyed this book. It is slow in the beginning but hang in there and you won't be disappointed.

A very moving story. Get the tissues out!
This is absolutely one of the best books I have EVER read (I listened to it via audiobook) ...right up there with "Unbroken" in my opinion. I had no idea of the details of the Siege of Leningrad by Hitler and it was truly horrific. It follows Anya and her 2 children as they simply try to survive as Leningrad is virtually cut off from the rest of Russia, leaving millions without food or electricity. I listened to the audiobook and Susan Ericksen was amazing. She used a Russian accent and I felt as if I were a fly on the wall watching the story unfold before my eyes. I highly recommend this Kristin Hannah book.
Susan Ericksen does Kristin Hannah fabulous justice by narrating. They are a brilliant pairing.
You can't help being drawn into a woman's tragic wartime story that she never even shared with her daughters before - even if it turns out a bit more dramatic than necessary.
