Publisher's Summary

All of England thinks Phillip Camden a monster - a man who deliberately caused the deaths of his squadron. But as nurse Arabelle Denler watches the so-dubbed "Black Heart" every day, she sees something far different: a hurting man desperate for mercy. And when their paths twist together and he declares himself her new protector, she realizes she has her own role to play in his healing.

Phillip Camden would have preferred to die that day with his squadron 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. What comes as a shock is the reborn desire to truly live that Arabelle inspires in him. But when an old acquaintance shows up and seems set on using him in a plot that has the codebreakers of Room 40 in a frenzy, new affections are put to the test.

History, mystery, romance - this book has it all!

This is the second book in the Codebreakers Series by Roseanna M. White and it’s wonderful to learn more about earlier characters and to meet new ones, both heroic and evil.

Set in England during WWI, life was much different than in the US and the class system was very evident, even in the military. Like other great books, there are several stories woven throughout which cleverly end in a very dramatic way! This is an excellent book and I highly recommend it.

Fantastic!

I am loving this series! Roseanna M. White has quickly become a favorite author, and I love how she makes her characters and history come alive! This series and the previous series, Shadows Over England, will be definite re-listens for me. And can we talk about the narrator, Susan Lyons? Wow! She makes listening a pure joy! I'd give this book, and the series, ten stars if I could!
(P.S. Phillip and Arabelle might be my favorite characters so far! But don't tell the others.)

Lovely, as usual, Ms. White.

I always find Roseanna M White's characters so easy to relate to, the stories engaging, and so much more than a love story. Faith, finding one's self, and a bit of adventure are familiar themes from this author by now along side a bit of romance. Thanks again for a thoroughly enjoyable tale.

Absolutely perfect

This is the first book I’ve read by Roseanna M. White and what a delight it was! Set during WW1 England it has intrigue, suspense, and romance all tied up in a well researched historical setting. The writing is beautiful, the pace perfect. The characters believable and likeable. The narrator does an amazing job. I would change nothing.

Very enjoyable

I love this author. I especially like how she weaves characters from older books, even older series into her books. Action adventure and romance. Easy to get lost in the world she beautifully creates. This book was one of my favorites. The characters were so lovable. I love how she turns hearts toward the Lord. The stories of redemption and changed hearts and lives are so full of joy. Hopefully there be more.

Excellent, as usual!

Ms. White has become one of my favorite authors. Her characters are full of life and draw the reader/listener in. The plots are detailed, but not boring. Not only are the books clean, they speak of our Lord Jesus with truth and reverence. Now I’m on to the next one.

A new favorite……..

The character development in this book is outstanding. Real struggles with faith and past mistakes throughout the plot, but the continued theme that God is waiting and willing to reconcile all of the pain. Probably my new favorite!

Her best yet!!!

I didn’t think I would enjoy this book as much as the previous Codebreaker book but it surpassed it. Full of drama, espionage, intrigue & romance. I love how Ms. White gives us a glimpse into history as well. I was not a good history student ( presented in a dry & boring fashion when I was in school) and her books have caused me to do research now into these periods of history that I know little about.
Thank you Ms. White, keep them coming.

Speed up narration

This is a great book but sounded so dreary...I almost gave up.
When I tried it at a faster speed it was perfect. Do try.

10 stars

I would give it a 10 if the stars went that high! I don’t know why I loved this book so much! I loved the dialogue between characters and how Ara didn’t allow her past pains from helping others no matter what they did to her. I appreciated the continuing references to characters introduced in book one. Looking for book 3 now
