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 every German telegram. 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, for the first time in her life numbers aren’t enough.
Drake Elton returns wounded from the field, followed by an enemy that just won’t give up. He’s smitten quickly by the too-intelligent Margot, but how to convince a girl who lives entirely in her mind that sometimes life’s answers lie in the heart?
Amidst biological warfare, encrypted letters, and a German spy who wants to destroy not just them, but others they love, Margot and Drake will have to work together to save them all from the very secrets that brought them together.

The Number of Love by Roseanna M. White was such an incredible read! Every time I finish one of White’s books my respect for her grows bigger and bigger. She writes with such fluidity and experience; you can really tell that she did her research, and I adore how incredibly rich and full each of her chapters are. White’s books are really a treat to read!
After reading A Song Unheard featuring Lukas DeWilde and loving the glimpse of Margot in there, I especially loved how The Number of Love dove into Margot’s story and her talent + innate ability to dissect numbers and math, and I feel like the author explained her personality really well. The other main characters, Drake and Dot, had such beautifully vibrant and rich personalities ; especially Dot and her reserved self. I definitely found myself connecting to Margot and Dot and I also loved their friendship (as well as Drake and Margot’s romance)! The plot was the only thing I felt was somewhat average compared to other books of similar genres — though that’s not a bad thing. I just can’t find anything particularly spectacular to mention of it. xD
Overall, amazing book! Such great content in there and I loved how each of the characters really learned to trust and lean on God! I would definitely and highly recommend this book to anyone and especially lovers of historical fiction. 5 stars!
