On Wings of Devotion by Roseanna White



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 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. 


I did read this book and I apologize for it being late but life happens!
I will start by saying that I absolutely hate that name Black Heart. Just because things happen no one deserves that ugly name. .But Philip Camden ended up wearing that name.
In my opinion since it's a war they were fighting anything can happen and whether Philip did it intentionally remains to be seen.
This is where Grace and Healing come into play. And we can't leave out forgiveness. But that is the hard part.
Roseanna really does a great job with this story! She kept my attention throughout the whole book.
I enjoy how she puts her characters through their paces and I found myself rooting for them the whole time.
I love her stories so I was really excited to read this one and she didn't disappoint! I think this the best one so far!
The characters are wonderful and so is the plot!
This is a story that will keep you riveted to your seat reading to see what happens next!
Oh and we can't forget the little mystery that was woven in throughout the story.
I didn't really relate to these characters but then, you don't have to to enjoy a great story! I was even able to imagine myself alongside Arabella and her co workers helping to treat their patients.
Arabella is part of the Codebreakers.
I loved the chemistry between these two and things escalated from there if you know what I mean.
I didn't want to say Goodbye either!
Highly recommend.
My thanks to Bethany House/Netgalley for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
