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, she discovers for the first time in her life that 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 soon the dangers of the war draw ever closer. Margot and Drake will have to work together to save themselves from the very secrets that brought them together.

When I got the chance to read The Number of Love, I was so excited. I always liked reading about spies and codes. This book took you deep into the heart of Room 40 as seen through the eyes of Margot. I thought Margot was an interesting character. She saw the world through the filter of math and numbers. I had to wrap my mind around the whole hearing the Lord’s voice in number form. I did feel like she learned how to really hear the Lord’s voice. I l thought the characters were well written. I liked some better then others.
One of my favorite things about historical fiction is learning something new about the time period the story is set. I did not realize that there was the threat of biological warfare during WW1. It makes me want to find out more.
This was a good story. I enjoyed it and had to know what happened. It didn’t capture me quite as much as some of her other stories. I loved how the characters from her other books popped in and out of this story. There are wonderful truths that the reader can learn right along with the characters.
I’m excited to read more of Roseanna White’s stories.
I recommend this book to my family and friends.
I received this book from the publisher to read and give my honest opinion. All thoughts are my own.
