About the book: 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.

My Take: I was intrigued by this book mainly because of the movie coming out about the Monuments Men. I am thankful for the men who risked their lives so that future generations would be exposed to some of the best art in history. I liked this book because of this take on World War II that I personally have not read about before. I liked reading about the perspective of women during this time as most books about this time of history are from a man's perspective. This is a first in a series so it is a good place to start. I am looking forward to the rest of the books.
I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
