Book Review: The Number of Love by Roseanna M. White

About the Book:

The Toughest Puzzle She'll Have to Solve 
Might Be the Wishes of Her Own Heart

Three years into the Great War, England’s greatest asset is their intelligence network—field agents risking their lives to gather information, and codebreakers able to crack every German telegram. Margot De Wilde thrives in the environment of the secretive Room 40, where she spends her days deciphering intercepted messages. But when her world is turned upside down by an unexpected loss, for the first time in her life numbers aren’t enough.

Drake Elton returns wounded from the field, followed by an enemy that just won’t give up. He’s smitten quickly by the too-intelligent Margot, but how to convince a girl who lives entirely in her mind that sometimes life’s answers lie in the heart?

Amidst biological warfare, encrypted letters, and a German spy who wants to destroy not just them, but others they love, Margot and Drake will have to work together to save them all from the very secrets that brought them together.

My Review:

What I love about reading a book by Roseanna M. White is that you get a good, solid book.  It's well-researched, the characters have depth, and there is an interesting plot that pulls through until the end.  No fluff. 

Margot De Wilde, whom we met in a previous book, is a fascinating character.  Her mind thinks in numbers, and her communion with God is based on numbers, as well.  She is most comfortable being "one of the guys" at work, so it was interesting to witness Margot expand her circle of friends.  Drake Elton was an amazingly well-educated, caring, competent, and dedicated man.  He served his country faithfully, and was an all-around great guy.  He figured out how to speak Margot's language, which was no small feat.

The mystery and intrigue surrounding the spy network during World War I makes for an interesting story line that keeps the reader turning the pages.

Those who have an interest in World War I and those who enjoy historical romance will certainly enjoy this book.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Bethany House, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.
