Whisper in the Wind by Maureen Lang Book Review

Whisper in the Wind by Maureen Lang
List Price:  12.99
ISBN:  978-1-4143-2436-4
Release:  September 2010

From the Publisher:
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 amid 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:
War stories are not my favorite kind of books.  They bring sadness.  This book brought sadness yet was filled with hope like no other. 
I fell in love with the characters and could relate to each one.  It put a new spin on “war” stories, one that made it real – with real life people – not just a John Wayne kind of story.
All through the book, I kept asking myself - “how would I have responded?”  I got to be honest, my faith was being tested just reading this book.  This book is an emotional one, that is for sure!
Would I recommend it?  Yes, but with caution!  Be prepared to get mad, get sad, be hopeful, rejoice and then just wonder!
Blessings to you!  You are loved!
