Against every warning, she’s drawn ever closer to the man known as “Black Heart”.
I was absolutely delighted to review Roseanna M. White’s latest novel, On Wings of Devotion. Roseanna M. White’s novels are rich in history with a beautiful message of faith. And not to mention—sweet, sizzling romance!
Arabella Denler, though a wealthy heiress, seeks purpose as a nurse during WW II. Her empathy draws the attention of Philip Camden, whose past has earned the scorn of Europe.
I was struck by the over arcing message of finding one’s identity regardless of failure or rejection. Both Arabella and Philip experience a devastating loss and wrestle with self worth. Perfect foils for each other, Arabella remains soft in a harsh world while Philip keeps his personal walls as high as possible. Regardless of his prickly persona, he understands Arabella better than anyone else.
Some of the banter in this novel is downright fun! But, Philip’s growth as a man in desperate need of mercy and finding that mercy, make this novel a touching read. I especially loved the message of finding one’s worth not in what we do or how others perceive us, but rather in how God views us. Book clubs will find plenty to discuss and enjoy.
On a side note, the villain in the novel is wonderfully complex and heart rendering. No spoilers! But fans of spy novels will enjoy the twists and turns. Readers will get an additional peek into the world of the Code Breakers with a return of favorite characters from book one, The Number of Love.

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 who just won’t give up. He’s smitten quickly by the intelligent Margot, but how can he convince a girl who lives entirely in her mind that sometimes life’s answers lie in the heart?
Amid 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 themselves from the very secrets that brought them together.
