A Portrait of Loyalty Review

Has this series really ended? If only we could have one more book! Hang in there, sweet readers—I’m about to book gush.

Are you a fan of the first two books within the Code Breakers series? I sure am! I found book three to be just as thrilling a read as The Number of Love and On the Wings of Devotion. I really enjoyed the Russian aspect. After witnessing injustice during the Bolshevik Revolution, Zivon Marin wishes to fight for what is right. Lillian Blackwell, with her artistic abilities, fights the war through the lens of a camera. Who doesn’t love intrepid female spies working for the British intelligence during WW1? Oh, did I love that angle!

As always, Roseanna’s novels are chockful of history and research. The message of resiliency and hope within difficult times (war and the Spanish Flu epidemic) will inspire readers, especially today. Don’t we all need uplifting novels right about now? The faith message is gently interwoven with espionage and sweet romance. A Portrait of Loyalty provides the perfect ending to the series. It’s also a wonderful choice for bookclub enthusiasts. Another five star read for me!

He sees patterns in what she deems chaos.

She sees beauty in a world he thought destroyed.

Zivon Marin was one of Russia’s top cryptographers until the October Revolution tore apart his world. Forced to flee to England after speaking out against Lenin, Zivon is driven by a growing anger and determined to offer his services to the Brits. But never far from his mind is his brother, whom Zivon fears died in the train crash that separated them.

Lily Blackwell sees the world best through the lens of a camera and possesses unsurpassed skill when it comes to retouching and re-creating photographs. With her father’s connections in propaganda, she’s recruited to the intelligence division, even though her mother would disapprove if she ever found out.

After Captain Blackwell invites Zivon to dinner one evening, a friendship blooms between him and Lily that soon takes over their hearts. But both have secrets they’re unwilling to share, and neither is entirely sure they can trust the other. When Zivon’s loyalties are called into question, proving him honest is about more than one couple’s future dreams–it becomes a matter of ending the war.
