Classic Storytelling! 10 décembre 2013
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
While I never have truly studied WWII, I have been fascinated by the novels written during that period. There is a certain “romance” if you will and base a novel on foreign soil and you have the makings for a captivating and sweeping story, because what reader doesn’t like to be transported to another world entirely when they sit down to read?

“Shadowed by Grace” in and of itself is a unique plot line. The main characters aren’t your typical soldiers, but they are fighting to protect something so important to society. I loved the tidbits of history sprinkled throughout the story and the telling of what happened to these pieces of art to protect them from being stolen and carried away, not to be found for years to come-if ever.

The landscape is rich in texture and setting. I rode in the back of that army jeep just as much as our hero did. Rachel is a compelling heroine with a story to tell and the romance of the book took me on a thrilling ride. This has such a strong feel of those old classic movies with Cary Grant or Audrey Hepburn as our main characters and I found myself living a piece of their lives through the pages of the story.

This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the author for a pre-release copy.

Art in War 6 janvier 2014
Par Sally McC - Publié sur
Format: Broché
World War II in Europe was about removing Hitler from power and freeing the people his Nazis had conquered. Before the dramatic D-Day landings in June 1944, the Allies landed in southern Italy and began their march north. Fighting between the Allies, Germans and Italians left the country in a bad way. Innocent civilians were caught up in the conflict, and some of Italy’s priceless historical artefacts were damaged, destroyed or stolen. An allied group, unofficially known as Monuments Men, was sent out to recover and restore what they could.

In Shadowed by Grace, photographer Rachel finds herself teamed up with Monuments Man Scott Lindstrom as they advance north. En route, they encounter locals who either welcome or distrust them, and pillaged Catholic churches. They help where they can, and Rachel takes photographs of the devastation. They eventually reach the castle of Montegufoni, where many works from Florence were hidden for safety during the war. It is there that they meet a former associate of Scott’s, a man who may hold the key to Rachel’s personal history. The final, pivotal, scenes take place in Florence. Weirdly, I experienced a sense of déjà vu while reading the climactic scene. I was certain I’d read this or a similar turn of events before, but I’ve no idea where.

This is an emotionally charged novel that is part war, part romance and part whodunit. It showed us how women in the military were often not taken seriously by their male counterparts and subordinates. We get an understanding of life for regular Italians, living among the rubble with little to eat, and never knowing whether they’d survive the day or which army to trust. Romance during a time of war could be fleeting. Here we have two people who get to know each other gradually and fall in love despite their best efforts. I didn’t feel the romance was forced or happening too quickly. Ultimately, this was a book I found difficult to put down.

Thank you to B & H Publishing for my free electronic copy of Shadowed by Grace, which I downloaded from NetGalley. No review was required.

Great Read! 10 décembre 2013

I'm not a fan of historicals, but I have to say, Cara's Monuments Men story, Shadowed by Grace, really had me lost in the story! Well written and plotted, I followed along on a journey that swept me back in time, and swept me up in a classic love story! If you love historicals, or just a good story period, you don't want to miss this one!

Format: Broché
Photojournalist, Rachel Justice achieved authorization to travel to Italy in the throes of World War II with the pretext of catching real-time photographs of the effects of war. Her ultimate goal, however, was to locate her father, a man she had never known. Her passion to find her biological father stemmed back to early childhood when she was looked down upon because her mother was unmarried. The ache to know her earthly father consumed her at this stage of her life, particularly because her mother's health was declining as a result of tuberculosis. Their finances had dwindled to next to nothing and Rachel was certain her father could help.

Rachel's mother had studied art in Italy as a young woman. With that information Rachel was armed with her mother's diary and a notebook of sketches done by an Italian artist whose name she didn't know. The only clues to his identity were his initials. Her mother refused to divulge her father's name, and forbade her to search for him, but Rachel believed that if she could locate him, he could offer financial assistance toward her mother's care and provide her the father figure she craved so much.

Private Scott Lindstrom received his assignment as an officer in Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Division, a division of the army devoted to locating and protecting priceless art and monuments. In Naples his general assigned Scott to accompany Rachel through war-torn areas as she sought newsworthy photographs for publication back in the United States. Scott's mission was to preserve the history of Western Civilization, the masterpieces and sculptures that he could locate. Having a tag-along wasn't his idea of accomplishing his job. The Monuments division followed behind the warring troops, dangerously close to the front lines, their jobs inspecting local monuments, beginning reconstruction and assisting in protecting priceless works of art.

Throughout this wartime novel Rachel observed Scott's strong faith in God even when tragedy was all around them. His prayers were simple and conversational, awakening questions in Rachel's mind about her loss of faith and a heavenly father. This underlying current is beautifully blended into this strong story of war and its casualties, unimaginable scenes of destruction and danger. An incredible amount of research has gone into the writing of this novel.

Cara Putman has created a masterful novel of classic proportion regarding events throughout Italy during World War II. The development of the characters throughout this poignant story is natural and human, realistic and at times painful. The author has done an outstanding job at creating settings that become visible through her descriptions. I found this book very difficult to put down; however, I did not want to rush through the book. I savored every detail. This is a book that I highly recommend and will read again.
