    Nightingales Nest PDF/EPUB Ø Kindle Edition nightingales kindle, nest free, Nightingales Nest KindleThis is going to be one of those times when I read a book that everyone else seems to love and I just don't get it Riddled with sadness and ambiguity I didn't truly enjoy the story at all The closest I could come to liking this book was appreciating that author Nikki Loftin created something unusual and touching There's a lot of good stuff here but it didn't come together in a meaningful way for this reader The writing was only so so and the symbolism heavy handed Still here we goLittle John is a boy in a lamentable situation His little sister recently died in a tragic accident He's estranged from his best friend because he's too proud
