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: I really enjoyed this story. History is always intriguing especially when it's accompanied by a great story. I can't imagine living during a time of war let alone serving on a battle field. Cara Putman did a wonderful job with her characters. They are full of depth and pull you right into the story. I enjoyed learning about the Monuments Men. I really didn't know much about their organization before reading this book. If you're looking for a great story based on real historical facts, pick up this book. I highly recommend it!
