A rich, compelling novel of love, sacrifice and survival, as epic
as the Alaskan landscape it so vividly describes -- Kate Morton
I didn't just love this book, I became obsessed with it [. . .] The characters were flawed and vulnerable, strong and naive, and Hannah has delivered a masterclass in all the different ways love can both save us and destroy us. She is an absolutely lyrical writer [. . . ] she perfectly captures and evokes the majesty and splendid isolation of Alaska and it feels a privilege to have journeyed there with her. This is a story that will stay with me for a long, long time. -- Karen Swan
Epic . . . By the end, I was surrounded by snow drifts of tissues damp with my tears * Washington Post *
Great characters, great plots, great emotions, who could ask for more in a novel? -- Isabel Allende on The Nightingale
Beautifully written . . . packed with action and emotion -- Sara Gruen, bestselling author of Water for Elephants on The Nightingale
Movingly written and plotted with the skill of Greek tragedy. You'll keep turning the pages until the last racking sob -- Daily Mail on The Nightingale
