Book Review: On Wings of Devotion by Roseanna M. White

About the Book

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

On Wings of Devotion is an exciting book full of amazing characters and intrigue in a World War I London setting.

Arabelle Denler is a nurse who is not afraid to take charge and help those who need aid.  But she is also an independently wealthy philanthropist who uses her fortune to help those in need.  She is deeply spiritual, and uses her resources and abilities to comfort others in a  way that draws them into God's presence.  She is a lovely character.

Phillip Camden has been dubbed, "Black Heart," as the captain of a squadron of pilots on a mission that went very wrong.  Underneath his gruff, selfish facade, he is hurting and guilt-ridden, yet fiercely loyal.

Much of the story is woven around Ara and Cam getting to know each other and exploring their relationship, while the intrigue is ramped up throughout the story, until it comes to a very exciting conclusion.

Book Two of The Codebreakers series, this book picks up where The Number of Love leaves off, yet it entirely stands on its own.  It was a lovely surprise to be reunited with characters from White's previous novels.

I recommend this book for readers of historical romance, those with an interest in World War I, and readers of White's books.  This is one not to be missed!

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