Review of "Springtime of the Spirit" by Maureen Lang

What a interesting time period of history -Maureen Lang has done her research and has written a lovely book about political unrest and sensitivities, as well as romance - in the aftermath of the Great War.
Former soldier Cristophe has returned home to Germany only to find it is not the country he once knew - or even what he thought he was fighting for.  He is requested by a long time family friend to locate their daughter, Annaliese, who has left home for reasons unknown (to her parents).  He finds her right in the heart of the new political scene, scorning her wealthy upbringing and fighting for the working class and women's right to vote and contribute to society as a whole.  Eventually they fall in love....but all of the political unrest and war between the classes will stand in their way.

I haven't read a book (fiction or otherwise) about this specific decade in history and found it very interesting.  It was great to learn about politics and much more in Europe for this particular season of time.  I look forward to reading more of her books.
