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.
“He straightened. “I’ll not see you throw your life and your fortune away on some money-grubbing scoundrel. I may not be good for much these days, but I can at least scare off the rabble.”Unbelievable. “The papers have something right, anyway—you are a madman. A raving lunatic.” She moved to step past him, back onto the street.He blocked her. “You’ll not dissuade me, Arabelle. I’ve made up my mind, so just resign yourself to an escort.”“I don’t need a … a guard dog!” She moved to sidestep him the other direction and, as soon he shifted to compensate, darted around him on the first. He was at her side within a step. “Woof.”It was anger simmering. It had to be. She couldn’t let it be amusement, couldn’t let it be gratitude, and certainly couldn’t let it be hope. “Go home, Camden.”“No.”“I don’t want your company.”“Too bad.”“I’ll have my father—”“I’ve already spoken to your father. He thinks it capital of me to want to champion you.And has issued a standing invitation for me to come by in the evenings and chat about aviation and the possible applications of the field to his own.” He would. She gritted her teeth, picked up her pace, and angled her face up at Camden, ready to lam bast him with the only truth that might get him to call off this ridiculous plan.You’ll do me more harm than good. The words died before she gave them breath. Because when she looked up, he was looking down, and those too-blue eyes of his weren’t just cold. They weren’t just patronizing. They weren’t just determined. They were the very thing he’d called her—desperate. “I may not be good for much these days….” He’d been stripped of his squadron, his brothers-in-arms, his purpose. He’d been told he was a villain. He needed to help. Someone, somehow. He needed to prove, if only in some small way, that he was worthwhile. But couldn’t Cass be his proof, or Jeremy, or his mother, or some other person he actually knew? Why did it fall to her? He needs to help. This time it wasn’t just a thought. It was an echo in that place in her heart where the Lord whispered. She faced forward again. Lord God… this is a bad idea. She wasn’t weak, not like Camden had said she was. But she wasn’t strong either. Not when it came to him.”

After reading this book all my head wants to say is WOW…
I have not previously read any books by Roseanna M. White and I am now scratching my head wondering how I could have missed her? This book On Wings of Devotion is actually the second book in her Codebreaker series. However, I was not lost at all just jumping into this one (I will definitely be going back and reading the first one though).
The character interactions in this book are the best I have read in a while. They banter back and forth so much, and you just can’t help but smile or laugh, through it all. They did have their ups and downs, but I was amazed by Ara’s absolute faith in the face of everything that happened. Yes, she had doubts but they never lasted for long. That is what I personally strive to do even though it doesn’t always work out as well as in this book. Camden was also a great character who I enjoyed getting to know. He was the picture of a flamboyant flyboy with a teddy bear heart underneath. So much mystery surrounds him, and we get fed little bits of his true character throughout the book. It was like getting to know someone in real life, you slowly get to know them over time.
The storyline in this book was riveting like it literally sucked me in (Laundry did not get done that day 😊). I think it really comes back to the ways in which Roseanna M. White used her characters. She used a combination of real events that happened in history combined with characters in believable situations and she rounded them up in a great storyline full of espionage, mystery, and love.
I give this book a resounding 5 out of 5 stars for keeping me hooked from the very beginning, the historical accuracy of the characters and events, and for the overwhelming theme of faith in God that He is always by your side. I highly recommend reading this book!
