“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.
