A Golden Heart Award winner and Christy Award finalist, Maureen Lang enthralls listeners with Look to the East, the first entry in her sweeping World War I trilogy. Caught on the front lines of the Great War and torn by feuding families, the French village of Briecort is rocked by fear, suspicion, and blame. As the tale unfolds, the chaste and tender love of an adopted villager and a Belgian refugee shines brightly against a dark backdrop of pride, vanity, and greed. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Even if you aren’t a fan  of war stories, this is still a book not to be missed…[It] is so much more. Kudos for a smoothly written, interesting, and well-researched novel.”

    Historical Novel Review

  • “Set in the French hamlet of Briecourt, Lang’s first novel in her Great War romance series teems with conflict…A cautionary tale as well as a romance within an exciting framework of war, secrets, and blissful reunions.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “I’ve come to expect excellent prose from Maureen Lang, and Look to the East doesn’t disappoint. It gives a glimpse into the past that will make you reflect upon the characters and the message long after you’ve finished reading.” 

    Judith Miller, bestselling author

Listener Opinions

    " Wasn't sure I liked it in the beginning...it got a lot better the second half! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Nicole | 12/27/2013

    " This was my first book by Maureen Lang and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The characters were lovable and real, and the setting was picturesque. The plot really picked up about halfway through the book (though there was plenty going on before that), and during the last few chapters I gripped the book and growled in frustration at the characters and situations! I'm looking forward to moving on the 2nd book in the series (Whisper on the Wind), and I was so excited to read the synopsis for #3 (Springtime of the Spirit) and find out that a character from Look To The East will return! "

    " I actually didn't finish this one, mainly because the plot was predictable and the characters fell flat. I didn't feel at all connected to the story and just wasn't interested. Maybe next time. "

    " I'm surprised how much I liked this book. A nice easy read with a little Christian faith, romance and some historical fiction weaved in. "
