Whisper on the Wind by Maureen Lang

In 1916, World War I rages and German-occupied Belgium is hardly an ideal setting for romance. Yet, Isa Lassone, whose wealthy family left Belgium at the beginning of the war, returns to find the man she has loved for as long as she can remember, Edward Kirkland. When he refuses to leave Belgium with her, she vows to stay and moves back to the home she grew up in. She soon realizes that Edward is involved in an underground newspaper and offers her assistance. According to German forces, publishing an underground newspaper is worthy of the death sentence and Isa knowingly accepts the risk. As Isa and Edward work together, their hearts bind together in a way they never have before. As danger looms uncomfortably close, Edward seeks to protect all those he loves. His efforts fail miserably until he acknowledges that only God can truly protect Isa and his family.

Whisper on the Wind is the first World War I fiction book that I've read in years. Generally, I stay away from war-related stories; however, I can honestly say that I enjoyed this one. The plot gripped me almost from the beginning. I loved the combination of action, adventure and romance. I think the mystery element of how Isa and Edward could possibly survive worked very well for the story. A good read for anyone who likes historical romances.
