WHISPER ON THE WIND
The characters are well written and well rounded in this tale of romance and suspense. Edward and Isabelle are willing to risk their lives in a time of war to alert the rest of the world to what is happening in their country.
Belgium, 1916. Isabelle Lassone has returned to war-torn Brussels to convince Edward Kirkland to leave with her. When he refuses, she decides to stay and help. Edward is furious Isabelle will not leave; there is a war going on and it is not safe for her to be here. He has another reason for wanting her to leave: he is part of the underground newspaper, La Libre-Belgique. It is dangerous work, but the only way to get the truth out, as the Germans ordered every newspaper to submit to censorship or be shut down. Will war take its toll on these two young people, or will they be able to survive whatever the Germans put in their path? (TYNDALE, Sep., 407 pp., $12.99)
