Publisher's Description

By the fall of 1918, the Great War has ended and the world is at peace, but there is little to celebrate in Germany. After four years of fighting for his homeland, Christophe Brecht returns to find there is little left of what he once called home. So when family friends ask him to travel to Munich to bring back their runaway daughter, Christophe agrees.
When he finally locates Annaliese Duray, he discovers she is far different from the girl he once knew. Headstrong, idealistic, and beautiful, she is on the front lines of the city’s political scene, fighting to give women and working-class citizens a voice in Germany’s new government.
As the political upheaval ignites in Munich, so does the attraction between Annaliese and Christophe. With an army from Berlin threatening to squash everything Annaliese has worked for, both she and Christophe are forced to choose between love and loyalty.

In Springtime of the Spirit, Maureen Lang weaves a tale of love, loss, and long-awaited reunions as many lives come together in the tumultuous aftermath of World War I. Lang makes it easy for the reader to be drawn into the terrifying world of post-Great War Germany through characters who come to life with every word.

Returned from four years of fighting for his homeland, Christophe is heartbroken to find that the very Germany he fought for is now fighting against itself. Almost immediately after his return, he is sent away again in search of the daughter of a family friend. Amid the upheaval in Germany, romance blossoms anew between Christophe and Annaliese, who has had a long-held infatuation with Christophe. One of the many things standing in their way, though, is a man who shares many of Annaliese's beliefs but who is about to betray those beliefs by endorsing communism. Though at first Annaliese battled temptation for the man, now she must battle between continuing to follow him and holding firmly to the beliefs they used to share.

One verse that seems to recur rather often in the novel is Micah 6:8. "And what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God." Although Annaliese is a strong woman who is fighting desperately for the voice of women and working-class citizens, she still has much to learn about what she believes in terms of both God and fairness. She must decide whether she wants to return to the God she abandoned at the same time she abandoned her family, or if she should hold to the political beliefs she has recently been sharing with the crowds.

Springtime of the Spirit is rich with politics, war, secrets, faith, and love. Any woman with an affection for historical romances and an interest in Germany or the Great War would enjoy this finely-woven tale. – Christa Mullen, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    I could not put this book down!!!! It's is historically and spiritually accurate. The message of God being the only one in control of peace and his ability to turn all bad into good is a great message that we all need to be reminded of.

    This is the first book that I've ever read by Maureen Lang. It's entitled, "Springtime of the Spirit" and it's part of her Great War series. The story is set in Munich, Germany, after the end of WWI. Germany has been defeated and soldiers are marching home.

    A lovely lady by the name of Annaliese Duray is very passionate about politics and is giving women and the working class a voice in the new government. Christophe enters the scene, a family friend to bring her home...sent by Annaliese's Mom, Frau Duray. She doesn't want to go home. Annaliese and Christophe end up having an attraction towards one another and they end up staying in Germany rather than going home, to America with Annaliese's parents.

    This was the first book I've read by Maureen Lang and I was impressed. A nice historical romance. This is set post WWI in Germany. One of the main characters Annaliese grew up wealthy but was advocating for peace and equality for all. Christophe, who was a friend of Annaliese growing up, was sent by her parents to bring her back to her home knew that true peace is only available through Christ. Through the story, Annaliese comes to find the truth that although we can try to promote peace here on earth is it only found through Jesus. You will enjoy this book!

    Springtime of the Spirit was difficult to put down. I read the story in just a few days, and it's not a short book. I think this is Maureen Lang's best book. I enjoyed the previous book in the Great War series, but this even tops that one, probably because of the communist versus socialist theme during that time period.

    I've always found it tragic that Europe has gone through so many wars and so much bloodshed. It's even more tragic when countrymen kill each other with the hopes of making the country better, only to make things worse. The developing emotional relationship between Annaliese and Christophe was incredible to witness. While drawn to each other, they fought closeness for many different reasons. I worried for their safety but also admired them for their bravery and commitment to what mattered to them.

    The spiritual arc in this story was impressive, too. It came out naturally but it also made a lot of practical sense. It's so true that we each need to find a relationship with God for ourselves. Sometimes that's hard to do when we want to please someone else. In fact, that may influence things to the point where it's not the result of a true desire to know God, but more like the desire to have a connection with the person you don't want to lose. That was very well done.

    I could go on about all of the things I loved about this book, but I'd have to say that true Christian compassion and sacrifice really struck me as the main theme in this story. Forgiveness played a part, but it was showing Christian love that hit home for me. There is something in every book that Lang writes that reaches my heart. This one was no exception.
