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 Thoughts:
The cover of this book is beautiful and so is the story within.  While the relationship between Rachel and Scott "happened" a little fast and some parts were a little too predictable, Shadowed by Grace was a delightful read.  Putman includes a love story, a bit of suspense, humor, and action. The research that was put into the book is evident in that Putman captures the era in great detail.  You almost can feel as if you are there in the midst of the story.  This was my first novel by Putman to read and I look forward to reading more soon.
Thank you Litfuse Publicity for providing a complimentary copy of the book for the purpose of this review.
Happy Reading,
