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?

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 !

Very unique book

Loved the narrator and the accents she gave the characters. This book truly came to life and I plan to listen to it again in the near future. Wonderful story and definitely worth the credit!

Amazing!

Would you listen to Nightingale again? Why?

Yes, the storyline was very well-constructed. The way the opposing timelines and settings built up to the apex of the story was brilliant. Really thrilling at many points.

What other book might you compare Nightingale to and why?

The Honor series by Radclyffe, because of the nature of the love affair and the constant pursuit despite danger of protecting said affair.

What about Zehra Jane Naqvi’s performance did you like?

She was absolutely brilliant. So glad that she was the narrator on this. The accents were flawless and she really knew where to put emphasis in order to inspire anticipation.

Who was the most memorable character of Nightingale and why?

Hazar, because of her honor. She was also brought to great life and light by the author through Charlie's eyes.

Any additional comments?

This has been one of my favorite romances in a long time. Can't wait to hear from Andrea Bramhall again. What a truly talented creator!

The characters really capture your heart

...even the heartless ones. The characters are extremely well-developed. This is a book you can't put down once you start, and it stays with you after you read it. The narrator was wonderful and added to the realism of the story.

This is the second book I've read by Andrea Bramhall, and it's officially cemented her as one of my top 10 favorite authors.

Excellent Listen!

I found myself delaying tasks so I could keep listening to this story. It was beautifully written and performed perfectly. I wish it were a series so I could look forward to the next book. Sad to have it end. Worth the listen and then some.

Excellent Voice Actor. A Must Listen

Wow. Nightingale in audio shows how the right voice can make a great book into something remarkable. Kudos to Ms Bramhall for this heartfelt story of love overcoming all. Educational and enlightening, the author shows us how cultural differences can be overcome with understanding and compassion.

Ms Naqvi should have won an award for her work on Nightingale. I was transported into the lives of each and every character in this novel. Her narration was spot on. Wonderful when a voice actor elevates the strength and power of a story.

I rarely reread or re-listen to books. Nightingale might become an annual read for me now.

Excellent audio!

I loved Nightingale by Andrea Bramhall. One of her best books. Excellent narration by Zehra Jane Naqvi. The subject matter is tough. No denying that. But the love story and look inside a different culture makes it well worth it. This stays on my re-listen list.

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.

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

absolutely amazing

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.
