The Number of Love

The Number of Love

    If you read

    (SHADOWS OVER ENGLAND #2), you met the brilliant, young Margot De Wilde. I don't know if she intrigued you, but she did me! It was so exciting to dive into her personal story in the first book of THE CODEBREAKERS. She is now seventeen years of age and spends her days deciphering messages and breaking codes. Throw in a brave field agent named Drake, spies, emotional drama, and a journey of faith, and you have a superb historical novel.

    Margot was such a fascinating character to follow. Her brain just works so differently ... always thinking in numbers. She's spunky, but also sweet and unassuming, in a way. The way she approaches people, friendship, romance, even God, is very interesting. I loved watching her grow. I loved seeing her faith expand. I loved the way she fell in love. At some points, I worried that

    would push that feminist rhetoric, saying stuff about how being a wife and a mother is such a drudge, and why do they force that on women, and Margot was made for more than that!! But I think that it actually turned out quite beautiful and sweet, and cherished Biblical womanhood.

    This author does really well with historical detail and setting. It was intriguing learning more about World War I, and also going undercover with the spies and breaking enemy codes! So cool! Action, drama, intrigue ... this book has it all! Again, I loved the faith theme - it was heartfelt. And that romance was just so tender and adorable and fun! Drake Elton was definitely a great character. And also his sweet sister! It was great seeing characters from other books, as well.

    Truly, a unique, exciting, and thoughtful novel. I loved it! So looking forward to Book Two!

    Everyone fell in love with the quirky, genius, number-loving Margot in A Song Unheard. And now she has her own story.

    Roseanna White is an author with many strengths and talents, from strong plots to the historical depth her stories contain, but perhaps her greatest strength is her characters. Each and every one is unique with their own quirks, and each one sees the world a little differently. For this character-loving girl, that makes these books for me.

    Everyone fell in love with the quirky, genius, number-loving Margot in A Song Unheard. And now she has her own story.

    Roseanna White is an author with many strengths and talents, from strong plots to the historical depth her stories contain, but perhaps her greatest strength is her characters. Each and every one is unique with their own quirks, and each one sees the world a little differently. For this character-loving girl, that makes these books for me. Margot is quite possibly White's most complex character, and while she is so different from me, I quickly fell in love with her. Drake, too, is a very distinctive character. I don't think there is a character I don't like in any of White's book. (Okay, actually there is one.

    ) From page one, these characters grab your interest and you're rooting for them for the rest of the story.

    The plot moves along at a nice clip and there wasn't ever a moment I wanted to put this book down. Packed with loads of historical depth, espionage, spies, encoded messages, gunfights, romance, and authentic Brittish dialogue, there's something for everyone in The Number of Love! White explores themes of love, loss, and trust throughout the story, and there are several heartfelt scenes, a few of which had me tearing up. The romance is swoon-worthy without being over the top or sensual in any way.

    All in all, White pens another fabulous novel. I have nothing negative to say! The quality of these novels is unsurpassed; I always know I'm in for an excellent read when I pick up this author's books. Well done, Ms. White! I cannot recommend The Number of Love enough!

    FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this novel for promotional purposes from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. These are my honest thoughts and opinions.

    I'm not sure how Roseanna White topped her last book, which I loved but she has.

    This is the first book in her new series, the Codebreakers series.

    Her books are totally on point. Though fictional they are so meticulously researched you would swear you were reading a true account of things going on.

    I am always fascinated in learning new information about things I already know.

    Margot is such a strong willed and intelligent woman . I loved seeing a woman involved in a field usually dominated by men

    Margot is such a strong willed and intelligent woman . I loved seeing a woman involved in a field usually dominated by men. She is a codebreaker able to crack German telegrams gaining information about enemies plans. It was interesting learning about the importance of the secretive room 40.

    The book intrigued me from the very start and I had to keep turning page after page to see what happened. The plot fascinated me and it moved along quickly. I can't wait to meet up with characters from this book in the next book in the series.

    Published June 4th 2019 by Bethany House Publishers.

    I was given a complimentary copy of this book. Thank you.

    Roseanna White never, ever fails to completely delight and enthrall me with her stories. Every single time, the storyline is intriguing, the characters are layered and relatable and unique...and Margot might be her most unique character yet. I adored her! Her love of numbers and her very analytical, rational personality are pretty much the complete opposite of me...and yet, I still connected with her so deeply. I felt what she felt.

    Roseanna White never, ever fails to completely delight and enthrall me with her stories.

Her love of numbers and her very analytical, rational personality are pretty much the complete opposite of me...and yet, I still connected with her so deeply. I felt what she felt. I loved getting to know her in a deeper way (after first meeting her in one of Roseanna White's past books) and the whole plot revolving codebreaking and spies was wonderfully interesting. The romance was steady and heartfelt. I'm excited for another wonderful series by one of my faves!

    3 Reasons to Recommend: The Number of Love

    3 - History.

    During the Great War, Room 40 was the intelligence hub of the Admiralty. White portrays this organization of codebreakers and secretarial staff as a diverse yet tight-knit group of professionals. She draws a number of fascinating real-life events into her story—explaining in her author's note how she had to alter the timeline of a few to fit her storyline.

    2 - Friendship.

    3 - History.

    During the Great War, Room 40 was the intelligence hub of the Admiralty. White portrays this organization of codebreakers and secretarial staff as a diverse yet tight-knit group of professionals. She draws a number of fascinating real-life events into her story—explaining in her author's note how she had to alter the timeline of a few to fit her storyline.

    2 - Friendship.

    “I’m not a secretary—I’m one of the cryptographers. I hate fashion, I hate gossip, and I absolutely cannot stand girls who giggle over every man who sends a smile their way. So if you want to walk the other way, I won’t begrudge it.”

    When Margo made this forthright statement and Dot accepted her, I smiled. I've begun two friendships in a similar way and one is still going strong—24 years later. I would much rather have a few friends I can be completely transparent with than a gaggle of shallow acquaintances. Dot and Margo's friendship grows deeper and stronger as the story progresses and the two women change for the better because of it—like iron sharpening iron (Proverbs 27:17). In this fast-paced story or espionage and subterfuge, I felt like the friendship shared between Dot and Margot grounded the story.

    1 - Margo De Wilde.

    "Emotions didn’t obey the rules. They existed somewhere outside the set of axioms that governed the rest of her life. They confused her."

    When I look back over the list of books I've read this year (61 so far), Margo is one of the most memorable characters. I admire her intelligence and wit and I can relate to her introverted ways. While it's not easy to gain access to her inner circle of trust, once you're in, she is fiercely loyal. Drake "gets her" and works to win her by deciphering and speaking her love language.

    *I deducted a star because Margo receives direct revelations from God, apart from scripture.
