It’s been a while since I’ve shared a review here on Mommynificent. I guess I was taking a little vacation from blogging but I didn’t realize it at the time. 🙂 Anyway, I’m back, and this is the first of quite a few wonderful books I have to share with you this summer! I was literally counting the days until I could get my hands on this book!

Summary from the author: The Toughest Puzzle She’ll Have to Solve Might Be the Wishes of Her Own Heart
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 German telegrams for hints of the enemy’s plans. 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 quick and brainy Margot, but soon the dangers of the war draw ever closer. Margot and Drake will have to team up to save themselves from the very secrets that brought them together.
I have been excitedly awaiting this book ever since meeting Margot in A Song Unheard, and it did not disappoint! Roseanna White’s characters are always the perfect blend of intelligent and quirky, her historical settings are always spot on, and the spiritual journey of her characters is always inspiring. This book checks all those boxes and more. I have always been a sucker for characters who are a little socially awkward because of their genius and for the characters who love them, both romantically and as loyal friends. For all those reasons, I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it! My 14-year old daughter also read and enjoyed this book as part of our studies on WW1 this year!
It’s an age-old struggle. Who gets to read the book we’ve both been impatiently waiting for first when the ARC arrives in the mail? 🙂
Full disclosure, I also received a complimentary electronic copy of this book from NetGalley so it was all good. 🙂 But this book is definitely worth fighting over!
