Meet a new author to me, Cara C. Putman. She’s not new to writing with fifteen books!
Shadowed by Grace, her newest novel, takes place during World War II. The book is inspired by the story The Monuments Men. Did you know Hitler’s army pillaged the finest art of Europe during the war? The monuments men joined the front line of the war to protect and find the stolen art. That book is soon to be a feature film February 7, 2014.
Rachel is a newspaper reporter, who has taken an assignment in Italy. She hopes discover the identity of her father, an Italian artist, who might be able to help her save her ailing mother back in the states. Upon arrival in Italy, she becomes a part of the efforts of the Monuments Men to save the countries monuments and works of art.
The characters in this book are all seeking to protect something greater them themselves. I loved that deeper theme of the story.
God had shadowed her life with grace, even when she didn’t know to look for him.”

The men and women of the World War II era are often called the greatest generation. I love books from this time period.
