This is Book #1 in "The Great War Series". Good historical/romance story.

At the dawn of WWI the small village of Briecourt is isolated from the early battles while a century-old feud between the Toussaints and the de Colvilles still rages in the streets. But when the German army sweeps in to occupy the town, families on both sides of the feud must work together to hide stragglers caught behind enemy lines.

Julie Toussaint may have been adopted from a faraway island, but she feels the scorn of the de Colvilles as much as anyone born a Toussaint. So when she falls in love with one of the men in hiding -- a wealthy hansome Belgian entrepreneur -- she knows she's flirting with danger.

Charles Lassone has been waiting in the church cellar, safe from the Germans for the moment. But if he's discovered, it will threaten the entire village -- including Julitte -- and could cost Charles his life.
