Publisher's Summary

When Charlie Porter meets Hazaar Alim her first year of university, she's instantly smitten. Hazaar has it all: beauty, talent, and brains. What she doesn't realize is that Hazaar's future has already been decided, and Charlie has no place in it.

Hazaar desperately wants to break with her traditions and stay with Charlie, but when forced to choose, she chooses her family over love. When she realizes the choice she made is the worst one possible, it's too late.

Years later, while working in Pakistan as a diplomat and negotiator, Charlie receives a phone call from a woman who says her British sister-in-law is to be killed for the family's honor and asks if someone can save her.

Charlie and Hazaar are on a collision course with destiny. If they make it out alive, can they believe in their love once again?

    Story
    "Nightingale"

    Laughter, tears , anger and sometimes frustration all in a wonderful tale of love and misguided religious zealotry. For Charlie and Hazar life couldn't have been more complicated. This is a wonderful story and should be listened to by all. The narrator captured each character fully and beautifully.

    "Bramhall is king!"

    If you love Melissa Brayden and Radclyffe much as I do , then you have found the perfect blend of emotion, humanity, and the ride of your life. This is an absolute MUST read. I have read everything by Bramhall and this book will stay with you as a gorgeously haunting journey of a lifetime. Anyone I have recommended this book to has become a Bramhall addict. Brace yourself for an unforgettable romance that will touch your soul, a suspense thriller worthy of Gillian Flynn, and a book you will look forward to getting up in the morning to hit play to over anything else !

    Absolutely one of the best books I have listened to. The story was right out of today's headlines. The performance was out of this world. I'm going to listen to it right away again.

    "Refreshing LGBT current event story very eye-opening!"

    Very refreshing novel! It's good to read an LGBT piece of fiction that current day and also tells a story that many of us in the west do not understand. This was an eye-opening story about the way women and different cultures are treated in the non-western world under old style thinking. However, this story also let us know that not everyone in those cultures subscribe to the same cruel and out dated thinking about different people and different ways of life. Very excellent and eye-opening Shing story. Also full of action and interesting detail about the culture from Pakistan and Islam. It contrast the true nature of Islam's love with the radical idealism from the old twisted thinking that we face from the radical groups today.

    Story
    "heart stciken with sadness"
    If you could sum up Nightingale in three words, what would they be?

    emotions, hot, emotions


    What did you like best about this story?

    i loved the devotion they have towards their families. Hazaar showed her devotion when she broke it off with charlie to save her father and brother's life. Also loved the sex scenes but really disgusted with the traditions portrayed in the book.


    Which character – as performed by Zehra Jane Naqvi – was your favorite?

    Loved both Charlie and Hazaar's performances.


    Who was the most memorable character of Nightingale and why?

    i absolutely loved Hazaar's father. He was trruly a loving and understanding man. The things he did for his daughter, his acceptance and how he punished his wife for causing so much pain.


    Any additional comments?

    this book had me in an emotional bunch, i hate their culture. why the hell would someone want to arrange their childs entire life. Bloody hell who the hell sells their child to save their business???.

    P.S. This is not Naquane!!!

    "Different..."

    I found myself looking forward to being in the car to listen to the next couple of chapters of this book. The characters have been well written and developed throughout the story. Just the right measures of suspense, cute moments and an unusual storyline. Would quite happily listen to it again sometime. Narrator did a great job too, she moved seamlessly between the different accents (and made it believable)!

    "I couldn't finish it so...best I can say..."

    I wish the sample could be longer because in the sample no accent was heard. Maybe it's a cultural thing, but I couldn't get into it. I cared nothing for the character or the story being told. It bored ms, I don't know if that was because of storyline or the narrator. Sorry, not for me

    I was not 100% sure whether this was a book I would enjoy. I have never been more wrong. This book was one of the best books I have ever read. I cannot tell much, but the emotion in it, the story and the way it was told was outstanding. Great read, cannot recommend it enough.
