Shadowed by Grace (Story of Monuments Men Book 1) by Cara Putman

Monday, January 13, 2014

Shadowed by Grace is the first in a stirring new series of stand-alone historical suspense novels by acclaimed author Cara C. Putman. Desperate to save her dying mother, Rachel accepts her newspaper’s assignment to travel to Italy to captures images dangerously close to the front lines of WWII. Her real motive – 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. It’s an unlikely situation for love and faith to flourish, but soon Rachel not only finds herself, but also her long-lost earthly father, and ultimately, the man her Heavenly father created to cherish and provide for her.

My Thoughts:
WWII is not a historical era that I am too familiar with, yet through great authors like Cara, I am learning more and more about this time in our history. 
I was drawn to this story not only because it is set in Italy, but because my birth great grandparents came to America from Genoa in 1905.
Cara paints the Italian countryside with a wide brush. I felt like I was there with Rachel and Scott as they went from Rome, Florence, and places in between to capture photographs and gather information on stolen Italian art.
Rachel wants to find the father she never knew, in the process she ends up finding her Heavenly Father who has Shadowed her by His Grace.
I was up late reading, and couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I highly recommend this book!
