Whisper On The Wind
Just what price would you be willing to pay for love? What price if the country you grew to love and call home was caught up in the middle of World War 1?
That's just what Isa Lassone does in the wonderful historical romance of Whispers On The Wind by Maureen Lang. The time is 1916 in Belguim and the Germans have occupied the country while in the midst of the war. They have taken to burning down existing buildings and looting what goods they can and shipping them off to Germany. They have burned all the buildings that Isa remembered growing up in Brussels, yet her home has miraculously survived. It's contents and servant staff have also been left untouched.
Isa's family had managed to escape just before the invasion taking her back to America, but deep within her heart she has always loved one and that one is now a man, Edward, who is worth risking her own personal safety to come back in the hopes of persuading him and his family to flee with her to safety. Only Edward isn't so willing to leave even if it means risking his mother and younger brother Jonah. Just what is prompting Edward to stay? Why does he stay gone at night? You'll have to check out the book and find out.

I received this book compliments of Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review of the book. I loved it and the risks that some people are willing to pay for the hope that love provides. I would easily rate this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars. If you love historical romantic fiction then this is the book for you.
