Book Review: On Wings of Devotion

From the Back:

Against Every Warning, She's Drawn
Ever Closer to the Man Known as "Black Heart"

All of England thinks Major Phillip Camden a monster--a man who deliberately caused the deaths of his squadron. But he would have preferred to die that day with his men 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.

As nurse Arabelle Denler observes the so-dubbed "Black Heart," she sees something far different: a hurting man desperate for mercy. And when their families and paths twist together unexpectedly, she realizes she has a role to play in his healing--and some of her own to do as well.

With Camden's court-martial looming, an old acquaintance shows up, intent on using him in a plot that sends the codebreakers of Room 40 into a frenzy. With their fragile hopes for the future in the cross hairs, Arabelle and Camden must hold on to hope--and to each other--if they want to survive.
My Reflections:
If you haven't read book one "Number Of Love" I encourage you to get it. This can be read as a standalone novel, but the first book is equally as good as this one. White's devotion to researching her facts is well played out in this novel, I felt like I was reading a really, really perfect history book with love notes and a complex story tucked inside! That's my kind of history.

Roseanna White is a crazy talented writer she takes her characters and pulls open the very vulnerable aspects of their suffering. This is seen in all of her characters but my favourites being Philip Camden his angry, sulkiness clashing with sweet, loving nurse Arabelle Denler, pure brilliance! Arabelle is tender and her heart for God is what shines through drawing people to her, you get to see God moving, changing and transforming the lives of the people around her. The unlikely match between these two seems pointless, or is it? Drama abounds around them as WW1 crashes amongst them. 

This book was spot on from the plot to the mystery and let's not forget the love story. You won't regret picking up this novel, I had a hard time breaking free from its grip. If you love this author as much as I do you may just want to go out and get the first book as well. See the review of "Number Of Love" here:
