Desperate to save her dying mother, an American woman accepts her newspaper’s assignment to travel to Italy where she takes photographs dangerously close to the front lines during World War II. But Rachel’s real motive in this journey is to find the father she never knew, an artist she hopes can offer the comfort and support both she and her mother need to survive at such a desperate time.
In her quest, Rachel becomes involved with what will become the Monuments Men effort to save great monuments and works of art from the Third Reich. Soon enough she will find more than she ever imagined—in war, in love, and in God.

Over the last year or so I have been so incredibly moved by the work of Cara C. Putman! Her writing takes you back in time and allows you to embrace a wonderful cast of characters! With her newest release, Shadowed by Grace, you will be introduced to the Monument Men! Perfect for those interested in the upcoming movie release of the same name, starring George Clooney!
Shadowed by Grace was an amazing read. A wonderful look into World War II that many of us are not familiar with, but will become so after reading this book. With rich descriptions and characters that will pull you into the dramatic story, you will not want to put this book down when you start reading. From start to finish, Shadowed by Grace, is definitely one of my favorite reads thus far in 2014! It is an emotional journey that I will not soon forgot! I cannot wait to read more from Putman in the near future!
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
