Remember Me by Maureen Lang {book review}


Remember Me by Maureen Lang {book review} is the sequel to Pieces of Silver in the series by the same name, Pieces of Silver.

Summary:  

In this dramatic sequel to Pieces of Silver, again set during World War I, a German man falls in love with one of the most patriotic women in America–who would surely have nothing to do with him if she knew his past. Guaranteed fiction!

My Reaction:

Public library copy. Not remembering book #1, hope it comes back to me. Excited to read this. Love this author’s books. … not liking this yet … not hooked yet … okay, I’m hooked. This is a tough story historically, tough to write, tough to read. This book is AWESOME!

This is one of the best Christian historical fiction stories I’ve read. Well done! Since I’m not a big fan of romance, and the beginning of the book is the foundation of the story, based on the love story of Josef and Lissa, it took me more than a few pages to get hooked. Once the historical part kicked in, which is the Great War, which we know as WWII, I was hooked.

This truly is a love story, on many levels. So many characters so expertly woven into the story, most of which was entirely believable. This is one of those books that make me want to research history myself, partly in hopes of finding the characters were real people, and partly to learn more about what life was like during 1917.

Two words of wisdom to pass along. Once you find an author you love, trust their writing. Always read to the end, and see if you aren’t wowed by the book. The second thought is that all Christian fiction worth reading should have a solid faith element deeply woven into the story through at least one or two of the characters, who not only have a personal relationship with God, but grow in their faith throughout the story.

I highly recommend this book to lovers of history, particularly American, German and WWII history, lovers of a good love story, and lovers of clean faith-filled writing.

My Rating: Five stars

About the Author:  Maureen Lang has always had a passion for writing. She wrote her first novel longhand around the age of 10, put the pages into a notebook she had covered with soft deerskin (nothing but the best!), then passed it around the neighborhood to rave reviews. It was so much fun she’s been writing ever since.

Most of her books are historical, with an emphasis on faith and romance.

Maureen lives in the Midwest with her husband, her two sons, and their much-loved dog, Susie. Visit her Web site at www.maureenlang.com.
