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.

My Thoughts:
Nightingale is a story about love, romance, history and war.  While some battles are larger than others the battles of the heart can be the strongest.  This is an excellent read, a night of passion leads Esther to a place she wasn't expecting and how she deals with the consequences sends a strong message to the reader.

Coping with being a single parent rejected by her family and living with the family of the man who was a one night stand isn't exactly what Esther was looking for in life, while struggling she begins writing to Peter and finds a strength in God! 

This is a story of romance with some great history woven in, a very enjoyable read which left me wanting to read more!
