Publisher's Description

"All of England thinks Phillip Camden a monster--a man who deliberately caused the deaths of his squadron. But as nurse Arabelle Denler watches the so-dubbed "Black Heart" every day, she sees something far different: a hurting man desperate for mercy. And when their paths twist together and he declares himself her new protector, she realizes she has her own role to play in his healing.

Phillip Camden would have preferred to die that day with his squadron rather than be recruited to the Admiralty's codebreaking division. The threats he receives daily are no great surprise and, in his opinion, well deserved. What comes as a shock is the reborn desire to truly live that Arabelle inspires in him.

But when an old acquaintance shows up and seems set on using him in a plot that has the codebreakers of Room 40 in a frenzy, new affections are put to the test."

My Review

As the second book in The Codebreakers series, On Wings of Devotion, by Roseanna M. White, is a thrilling work of historical fiction! Descriptive, intriguing, and thoroughly engaging, this novel is a genuine pleasure to read and to savor. Elements of history, romance, and mystery combine seamlessly to fashion a story that is interesting, thoughtful, and remarkably enjoyable.

From the historic setting, to the unique characters, to the surprising plot, Ms. White delivers a story that is utterly satisfying! Set in England during WWI, the story captivates as it unfolds along the streets and in the buildings of early twentieth century London. Living under the shadow of blackout curtains, food rationing, and fear of air raids, the characters attempt to carry on with their lives and do their part for the war effort. And in so doing, they must face their fears, address their insecurities, pursue redemption, renew their hope, and nurture their faith, all while their dreams are threatened by a dangerous enemy who is closer than they realize.

On Wings of Devotion is truly a special book! Very well-researched and exceptionally well-written, it is a novel that inspires even as it entertains. As compelling as it is memorable, it is definitely a novel I can recommend wholeheartedly.

About the Author: Roseanna M. White

"Roseanna M. White is a bestselling, Christy Award nominated author who has long claimed that words are the air she breathes. When not writing fiction, she's homeschooling her two kids, editing, designing book covers, and pretending her house will clean itself. Roseanna is the author of a slew of historical novels that span several continents and thousands of years. Spies and war and mayhem always seem to find their way into her books...to offset her real life, which is blessedly ordinary." --Biography from Roseanna M. White's author page on Amazon.com
