I absolutely loved Roseanna White’s “Shadows over England” series. Therefore, when I realized “The Codebreakers” series was connected, I was thrilled! Not only does “Number of Love” feature a young lady we already know and love from the previous series named Margot De Wilde, but it also gives us a glimpse into the lives of many of the other characters we came to love.
Not often do we find a female leading character in possession of mathematical genius and scientific brilliance, but that is an accurate, if not understated description of Margot De Wilde. With an intellect that has earned her a place in the codebreaking sector of British Intelligence during World War I, Margot’s story is not only one of a mental prodigy, but also of remembering that the heart is just as important as the brain.
This is the type of book that deserves the highest of praise. The characters shine through with clarity and realness, the story is captivating, the romance clean, and the messages timeless. It was simply a joy to read, all the way through. It made me think, laugh, relate, sympathize, guess at what would happen next, and definitely look forward to the next in the series.
“Number of Love” is, without a doubt, the best book I’ve read, and likely will read, this year. I cannot recommend it highly enough, and I truly thank the author for the beautiful addition this book has made to the genre.
