Summary

In 1967, after a twin baby boy suffered a botched circumcision, his family agreed to a radical treatment that would alter his gender. The case would become one of the most famous in modern medicine—and a total failure. As Nature Made Him tells the extraordinary story of David Reimer, who, when finally informed of his medical history, made the decision to live as a male. A macabre tale of medical arrogance, it is first and foremost a human drama of one man's—and one family's—amazing survival in the face of terrible odds.

    The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah | A 15-Minute Summary & Analysis 
    Preview: 
    The Nightingale takes readers into the world of German-occupied France during WWII. Set against the backdrop of war, the author explores the themes of love, family, and survival. The story unfolds in two sometimes intersecting plot lines – that of sisters Vianne Mauriac and Isabelle Rossignol – and follows their experiences during the war. The two women view and react to the war in very different ways, but ultimately are united by their shared commitment to family and the will to live. The book explores the difficult choices both women are forced to make time and time again as the war continues to devastate France.
