Review: Whisper on the Wind by Maureen Lang

August 1, 2010


Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Synopsis:In Brussels at the height of WWI, a small, underground newspaper is the only thing offering the occupied city hope-and real news of the war. The paper may be a small whisper among the shouts of the German army, but Edward Kirkland will do anything to keep it in print. Meanwhile, Isa Lassone, a Belgian-American socialite whose parents whisked her to safety at the start of the war, sneaks back into the country to rescue those dearest to her: Edward and his mother. But Edward refuses to go, and soon Isa is drawn into his secret life printing the newspaper . . . And into his heart.

My Review: I must be quick in my review, but I assure you that this book is one that you should read! I loved the characters; their description, demeanor, and the chemistry between them was captivating. It was one of the best modern-time historical fictions I have read in a long time. When I thought historical novels had been overdone, Maureen Lang surprises me with a gripping, tear jerking, epic read. You won't be disappointed with this book. Put it on your to-read-list! It's a must read.
