Book Review: Shadowed by Grace

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book: 

She found peace in a time of war.

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.

My Opinion
To me, nothing is better than a romance set in World War II. When I get to learn something about that time period that I didn't know before, I love the book even more!

That is what happened in Shadowed by Grace! Not only did I get a well-written book from Cara Putman, but I got a romance and got to learn about the Monuments Men, men who were in the Army to save important and invaluable monuments and artwork from Italy! I never knew about them before and it was a look at WWII that I never got to see before!

I also got to learn about a photographer's role during WWII through Rachel's journey - it was so vivid that I wished I could really see the pictures she took and it definitely made me want to research into pictures taken during WWII.

If you love learning about the WWII time period through a unique look and aspect, definitely read Shadowed by Grace!
