Book Monday-Author Maureen Lang & Whisper on The Wind

Whisper on the Wind
Book 2 in The Great War series.

She risked everything to rescue him. But what if he doesn’t want to be saved?

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.

Advance Praise:

“The suspenseful climax kept me on the edge of my seat!” – Lynn Austin, best-selling author

“A suspense-filled romance. . . . an exciting page-turner.” – Robin Lee Hatcher, best-selling author

Maureen Lang has always had a passion for writing. She hand wrote her first novel around the age of ten, put the pages into a notebook she covered with soft deerskin for a “hardback” cover (nothing but the best!) then passed it around the neighborhood for rave reviews. It was so much fun she’s been writing ever since. Eventually Maureen became the recipient of a Golden Heart Award from RWA, followed by the publication of three secular romances. Life took some turns after that and she gave up writing for fifteen years, until her faith sent her in a new artistic direction. Soon she won a Noble Theme Award from American Christian Fiction Writers, and a contract followed a year or so later for her Inspirational historical fiction Pieces of Silver, (nominated for a Christy in 2007). The sequel, Remember Me, released in February of ‘07. She also has three women’s fiction novels from Tyndale House Publishers, The Oak Leaves released in May of ’07, On Sparrow Hill and My Sister Dilly released in ’08. She has a new 3-book series, the first of which will release from Tyndale in the fall of ‘09, set in Europe during the First World War. Maureen lives in the Midwest with her husband, two sons and their dog, Susie.

    I really that this is during WWI.
    I am interested in reading a story set in that time period.

    For Hannah's benefit, I went to Borders here in Salem, Oregon, and asked re: Harlequin books, and they said no, but when I told them I was interested in the Love Inspired books, they knew right away where they were, and took me to them. They didn't seem to sell the others, though I wasn't interested anyway. I love the positive, uplifting, God-honoring, stories that magnifies the Lord and encourages us to walk closer to Him.

    Hannah, Didn't you know I have friends in high places? 🙂

  6. Bluerose says:

    I've been seeing this book around the blogging world a lot lately. It looks wonderful, and I can't wait to read it!! 🙂

  7. Project Journal says:

    Wow! Didn't expect to have you actually answer, Maureen! LOl!

    They really do sound very interesting. I'm going to have to check Borders…do you know if they carry them? Oh I'm hoping so! Otherwise, it would be very difficult for me to get my hands on them, lol!
    Talk to you soon, thanks,

  8. Maureen Lang says:

    Thanks for asking about the order of the books, Hannah! It makes absolutely no difference in what order they are read (unlike many other series, I know!). Actually the numbering of the books has been left off intentionally, because each one is an independent read – new storyline, new set of characters. Technically the heroine in Whisper on the Wind is the younger sister of the hero in Look to the East, but other than lending a thought about one another and a couple vague references, they never have any interaction.
    All three books are set during the First World War, and all three have European settings – but that's all that ties them together.
    So feel free to read them in any order! I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed writing them. 🙂

  9. Lyn Cote says:

    I'll ask Maureen!

  10. Juanita W says:

    Love the name of the book. So glad there is some way we can hear about the books out there. I would never look at every book in a bookstore, but when I know what is good, I look for them. I have quite a wish list. I need to get the 1st book too. Assuming one follows the other. Juanita

  11. Project Journal says:

    Hey Lyn,
    I've never heard of these books, but this one sounds…fabulous!! Seriously, thank you for pointing it out : )

    Do you know if you have to read them in order?
