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.
THE LOOK OF THE BOOK-
I love this cover, it has a very vintage, photographic feel…perfect for this story.
I noticed the “Ill Be Seeing You in Italy” cover- this could mean more in a series….yay!
Also included is an Author’s Note (with details into the background of the story), and Discussion Questions- great for a book group read!
Rachel and Scott are strangers thrown together in a very volatile and violent situation. I can’t imagine being in their shoes.
They both struggle with abandonment and pain from the past, like two ships in the night- searching for the light.
They are both on very different missions and I enjoyed how this added to the drama of the story.
So rich in history and romance, danger and adventure! I could not put it down.
The author has put heart, soul & research into this novel- and it shows!!!
From the moment Rachel and Scott first meet, I was with them every step of the glorious journey.
Would they find what they were looking for???
We are priceless to God! He will trek through hell and back to make us His.
Shadowed By Grace is a glorious reminder of this.
