Look to the East

At the dawn of the First World War, the French provincial village of Briecourt is isolated from the battles, but the century-old feud between the Toussaints and the de Colvilles still rages in the streets. When the German army sweeps in to occupy the town, families on both sides of the feud must work together to protect stragglers caught behind enemy lines.

Julitte Toussaint may have been adopted from a faraway island, but she feels the scorn of the de Colvilles as much as anyone born a Toussaint. So when she falls in love with one of the stragglers—a wealthy and handsome Belgian entrepreneur—she knows she’s playing with fire. Charles Lassone hides in the cellar of the Briecourt church, safe from the Germans for the moment. But if he’s discovered, it will bring danger to the entire village and could cost Charles his life.

In the novel, Look to the East by Maureen Lang, the reader is whisked away to France at the dawn of the First World War with tale between war families much like the Monteques and Capulets from Romeo and Juliet. This is a tale of war, secrets and love that can be found in the most unlikely of places.

I received this book compliments of Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review and have to rate this one a 4 out of 5 stars. The storyline is difficult to get into at the beginning but perseverance will lead to a captivating tale of romance set among the horrors of a war.
