Pieces of Silver
By Maureen Lang
For Liesel Bonner, the path to love is strewn with lies, deceit, and treachery in the midst of the Great War.
My goal was to create reasonable, sympathetic characters who are logically opposed to each other in their loyalties. What would betrayal feel like, and what if you were the one doing the betraying, simply because you felt you had no choice?
Why the author wrote this book:
I've been fascinated for years by the First World War time setting, and wondered what it would be like for a woman to find out the man she thought she knew well enough to consider marrying might not be everything she believed. He might, in fact, be more loyal to the German cause than to America - or to her. Pieces of Silver was created because I loved playing the "what if" game while reading history books about the First World War. It was my first Inspirational, and before its publication won ACFW's Noble Theme Award, the predecessor to today's Genesis.
