THIS BOOK COMES OUT IN JUST 5 DAYS!!!
About: 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.
Genre: Historical, romance, fiction, WWI.
My Rating: 5 stars.
My Favorite Character/s: I have no words to adequately explain how much I love this book because of these characters. And I am not even going to try.
My Verse for this book is Deuteronomy 33:25 Thy shoes shall be iron and brass; and as thy days, so shall thy strength be. (King James Version.)
I just can’t believe I got to read this book! I wasn’t able to get on the lunch team sadly and therefore had thought I would have to wait until it was published, then I saw it on NetGalley and requested and received it!!!! This book is so AMAZING!!! And the characters that made cameo appearances, AWESOME!!! Mrs. White is one of my all-time favorite authors, and this book was no different from her previous novels with their intrgue, deep characters, and most of all the history woven through. I just loved this book and the cover is so perfect for The Number of Love with the 18 and window it ties in wonderfully with the story. If you haven’t read Roseanna White’s books before you need to get in your car, drive to your bookstore pick up one or five of her books, go home, snuggle in bed with a cup of tea and one of the books. Or if you’re like me order them off Amazon and eagerly await the mailman.
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for a review — all the thoughts are my own
