Whisper on the Wind by Maureen Lang
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 Take : This was a very engaging historical Fiction book. I thought the description of Isa's return to Belgium was exciting and very suspenseful. At first I was a bit put off by Eward Kirkland but I grew to like him. I thought that Isa as a bit naive at first but the reality of the situation soon changed her perspective. It was interesting to learn about how they smuggled things into the contry and what they did to print the paper and get it out to the people at risk to their own lives. If you like hostprical fiction especially about World War I this book will satisfy your reading needs! I recommend it.
