Book Review- Shadowed By Grace

 As an avid WW|| reader I will just about read any book written in that era. I love learning about the war and reading different points of view, and this book was no exception. In Shadowed by Grace you see a new angle to World War || history mainly through art.  Lieutenant Scott's job was to track and protect priceless art masterpieces all throughout Europe. We witness a battle fought not with bombs and bullets but a battle to persevere cultures and history!

Cara Putman definitely ranks high in the originality department. Her writing style was very serene and simple drawing me instantly in to the WW|| "feel." I enjoyed her Characters Rachel and Scott, but would have loved to see them developed more. They seemed a bit surfaced and not super relatable, but still likable. The plot was very centered on Rachel finding her unknown father and through each place visited and adventures encountered that was the reoccurring theme, so the ending felt so quick and lacking.

Overall I think it was a well written remarkable historical side to WW||. I really enjoyed the photographic and artistic side to the story. There is a lot of mystery, action, and sweet romance.

I received this book for free from Litfuse in exchange for this independent and unbiased review.
