Review of "Look to the East" by Maureen Lang

Part of the Great War Series, "Look to the East" was an insightful peek into a French Village during its occupation by the Germans in the first World War.  Initially, I had a challenging time getting into this book, but about a third of the way through I began to enjoy it, and was hooked.  Maureen Lang has done an excellent job of telling a special story about Julitte Toussaint and Charles Lassone, who come from extremely varied backgrounds (he is privileged, she is adopted, and poor in belongings - but rich in spirit).  Through a series of circumstances they are drawn to each other, and eventually fall in love.
This was a very educational and interesting story and I am glad I read it!
