I've read a couple Kristin Hannah books, so GoodReads recommended this one to me. I think I need to set about reading her other books this summer. I definitely enjoyed The Nightingale. A story of courage, of standing up when no one around you supports your ideals. When your country is at war, when your mother is gone and your father doesn't support you and sends you away... a few times - sometimes it is those with the most difficult struggles who become the strongest, the courageous. Being underestimated, for sure, can be an advantage for women, and this story shows. This is one I spent too many late nights finishing, but I'm glad I did.
