    Out of the east comes a terror that will attempt to destroy the world.

    At the dawn of World War I, the village of Briecourt is nestled in relative safety. That all changes when the German Imperial Army marches in and takes over. Life will never be the same for the villagers, who have had a family dispute for generations. Will having a common enemy finally bring them together? Julitte Toussaint, the adoptive daughter of a seaman, has to withstand the scorn of the de Colvilles for the shadows of her past. When she finds an unexpected "visitor" hiding in the cellar of the church, she feels the pull of love for this man she hardly knows. Charles Lassone is a Belgian entrepreneur caught behind enemy lines. He longs for escape so that he can join the Allies cause and win the respect and love of Julitte. With a dispute running so rampant, who can be trusted? The difference between friends and foes could not become more complicated.

    This is both the first book that I have read by Maureen Lang and my first book set during World War I. Unfortunately, The Great War is not always as popular of a topic as its "sequel" is. Labor camps were in full effect during this period and the Germans were just as ruthless. The difference in time period wouldn't seem so drastic, but, I learned that they didn't believe it was safe to drop soldiers from planes during 1916. The tactics and methods were much more advanced come time for World War II. I became very emotionally attached to the characters. Their fight for freedom had me cheering them on with every turn of the page. Something that Julitte learns is that God sometimes uses us in ways that we can't explain, to ourselves or to others. He will work everything out, even if it's not how we had it planned. There is still evil in the world because God gave us a free will. But He will not abandon us. We must keep our eyes on Him and our hope in His promises.

    I received a free copy of Look to the East from Tyndale House Publishers through their Tyndale Rewards Program. I was not required write a review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    I enjoyed the historical aspect of this book. It was interesting to hear the perspective of the story as many of the books about wars I've read have been on American soil or about Americans in wars overseas. I saw how the author showed the problems with mysticism in the book as Julitte questions her faith in God when she no longer thinks she sees or hears from Him outside of Word and Sacrament. I appreciated that the authors showed the problems with mysticism, but I'm sure that the author did not understand that she did so. Instead of showing mysticism as a false teaching of the church, she brushed it aside as "God just isn't coming to you like that anymore." This is a problem for Christians who believe that God comes to us through Word and Sacrament and makes us less likely to read and buy your books and also can lead us away from our doctrine to this teaching of mysticism which can lead us to wondering about our own faith just as Julitte wondered about hers. That was a disappointing part of the book for me. I would not recommend this book to a friend because of the mysticism in it.

    Although this book wasn't one of my all time favorite's, the story was very sweet and well written. I would definitely recommend it if your a big historical fiction fan like myself. I love war stories and although I've read better ones, this book didn't disappoint.
