On Wings Of Devotion by Roseanna M White

Book review of On Wings of Devotion by Roseanna M White (Bethany House) by papertapepins

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.

This is suspensful historical fiction at it's finest, folks! I've started with the second book in the series, and I'm going to have to go back and read the first, although I don't see how it can top these characters. 

Arabelle is a strong heroine, with a compassionate heart. She has her insecurities and hang ups but she's brave and wonderful. And Black Heart, oh my. I love how his character is revealed, and evolves, throughout the book. And then there's the cat and mouse suspense and intrigue. This fantastic story is one I will revisit often. 

I also love the themes of forgiveness and redemption through grace that are explored, more so through the story than wordy descriptions. Beautifully interwoven throughout the story and I believe that God will use this book to speak to hearts who need to hear it.
