Nightingale

Susan May Warren's latest novel is entitled Nightingale, and it is an enchanting World War II period novel that I thoroughly enjoyed. Like all of Susan May Warren's fiction, the spiritual element of the story is knitted artfully into the narrative, like a cable stitch in a sweater--it's there, it looks different and stands out, but it's not like a big neon patch that assaults the senses. Rather, it enhances the story, making it beautiful and more artful than it would have been plain.

About Nightingale: Esther Lange doesn’t love her fiancĂ©—she’s trapped in an engagement after a mistaken night of passion.

Still, she grieves him when he’s lost in battle, the letters sent to her by the medic at his side giving her a strange comfort, so much that she strikes up a correspondence with Peter Hess, an Iowa farmboy. Or is he? Peter Hess is not who he seems. Indeed, he’s hiding a secret, something that could cost them both their lives, especially when the past comes back to life. A bittersweet love song of the home front war between duty and the heart...a battle where only one will survive.

Don’t miss book 1 in this stand-alone collection, Sons of Thunder.
