Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for On Wings of Devotion by Roseanna M. White, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


On Wings of Devotion by Roseanna M WhiteTitle: On Wings of Devotion
Series: The Codebreakers #2
Author: Roseanna M. White
Genre: Historical Romance
Publisher: Bethany House
Release Date: January 7, 2020

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.

I enjoyed renewing acquaintance with characters in On Wings of Devotion, book 2 of The Codebreakers series. While the major characters are new or were minor characters in the previous book, there are minor characters who played a role in The Number of Love. Set in World War I England, On Wings of Devotion contains political intrigue and romance. The plot centers around a codebreaker, a former aviator who was falsely accused of causing the deaths of his squadron, and a nurse, who has a caring spirit and wants the best for others. White has an attention to historical detail. Her Author’s Note at the close of the book points out some of the research which verifies several aspects of the text. 

Roseanna White has woven a great story – once I was hooked I had a hard time putting the book down. I look forward to reading book 3 in the series, A Portrait of Loyalty, which will bring a couple of minor characters in On Wings of Devotion to a major role. This is a series I will probably re-read start to finish once it is complete in order to better see how they are all connected – something that can be hard to do when reading books in a series several months apart.

I would not hesitate to add this book to my K-12 Christian School library. While it’s length of almost 400 pages which keep many away from it, it is appropriate for middle school and up.

I want to thank JustRead Publicity Tours for the complimentary copy of On Wings of Devotion.0
