Reviewed by Rebecca Carrico for Readers' Favorite In 1945, after Germany surrendered, the American army sent soldiers there, but not to fight. Their job was to find art stolen by the Nazis and return it to the rightful owners. They were also sent to rebuild German monuments, thus they were called the Monument Men. Anna Klein, separated from her husband by the war, is trying to support herself and her young daughter. She is hired by the Americans to type forms at the Collecting Point where the recovered art is being stored.  An American Captain, Henry Cooper, recruits her to be his translator. While searching for stolen art, they find a stash in the cellar of a villa outside of town. They also find a little boy hiding inside. He denies any knowledge of the art, but they feel he knows more than he is telling them. Instead of leaving him there as he wants, they take him to a displacement camp to be cared for. Captain Cooper does not report the find right away which gets them both in trouble with the army officials. A costly painting is stolen from the stash and they try to find the thief which puts them both in danger. Can they succeed? Will Anna be reunited with her husband? These are just a few of the questions answered at the end of the book. The Roses Underneath by C. F. Yetmen is a great read! The subject is intriguing, and based on true incidents in history. It is a well written historical mystery that gives us a glimpse of what life must have been like in post-war Germany.
