The nightingale by Kristin Hannah. (4.5/5 goodreads| genre: historical fiction) Despite their differences, sisters Vianne and Isabelle have always been close. Younger, bolder Isabelle lives in Paris while Vianne is content with life in the French countryside with her husband Antoine and their daughter. But when the Second World War strikes, Antoine is sent off to fight and Vianne finds herself isolated so Isabelle is sent by their father to help her.
As the war progresses, the sisters' relationship and strength are tested. With life changing in unbelievably horrific ways, Vianne and Isabelle will find themselves facing frightening situations and responding in ways they never thought possible as bravery and resistance take different forms in each of their actions. -

Della serie reading in the park 🍂🍁☀️📚
oggi è il mio compleanno 🎂e tra un pranzo e una merenda con gli amici mi regalo un momento tutto per me in compagnia di questo simpatico libretto in linea con la moda di questo periodo sul lifestyle nordico.🌲❄️
Non ho mai amato particolarmente il mio compleanno ma da qualche anno sto decisamente migliorando il mio atteggiamento😊
E voi? Vi piace il vostro compleanno? Come vi piace passarlo di solito? 😘
This photo reminds of the 80's era when people sat on the grass in the parks and had cold drinks and samosas. There is something so old school about walking in a park, feeling the old grass or new, seeing the flowers bloom and best of all, hearing the little birds chirp.
Times change but people remain the same.
..."knew only too well how often the early stages of change or cure may mimic deterioration. Cut a chrysalis open, and you will find a rotting caterpillar. What you will never find is that mythical creature, half caterpillar, half butterfly, a fit emblem of the human soul...we have not much language to appreciate this phase of decay, this withdrawal, this era of ending that must precede beginning."
