Character Spotlight: The Number of Love


Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for The Number of Love by Roseanna M. White with JustRead Publicity Tours! Follow along with the tour for a special inside peek at how The Number of Love is connected to the author's previous book from another series, A Song Unheard.


Title: The Number of Love
Series: Codebreakers #1
Author: Roseanna M. White
Publisher: Bethany House
Release Date: June 4, 2019
Genre: Historical Fiction/Romance/Intrigue

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.

Friendship has been on my mind a lot recently. When I found out a strong friendship was cultivated I knew I had to spotlight those characters. Today I'm talking about Margot De Wilde & Dorothea Elton.



Margot is our lovely, and crazily brilliant heroine. She was a master codebreaker and she looked at literally everything in numbers. She even spoke to God in numbers. It was refreshing to see a character with an unconventional quirk. She didn't like the thought of emotions or feelings because they weren't absolute.

Out of the two she definitely was the logical, nonsense friend, however they balanced each other out and had a wonderful friendship. They were there for each other when it was needed.


Dorothea Elton is none other than our precious Drake Elton's sister.

Where Margot was “confident and not afraid of anything” Dot was skittish. She had severe anxiety when she had to leave her flat. Anything that required her to go outside sent her into an attack, until she met Margot.

Their friendship gave Dot courage and she slowly started to get better. Though Margot never pushed her past her limits, she knew Dot was so much stronger than anyone gave her credit for.

Both girls truly flourished because of the friendship.

It was a friendship orchestrated by God and it stood the test of time in the end. They became more than best friends, they became soul sisters.

Take Away: Never take your soul-friends for granted!  


Title:A Song Unheard
Series: Shadows Over England #2 
Author: Roseanna M. White
Publisher: Bethany House
Release Date: January 2, 2018

Willa Forsythe is both a violin prodigy and top-notch thief, which make her the perfect choice for a crucial task at the outset of World War I—to steal a cypher from a famous violinist currently in Wales.

Lukas De Wilde has enjoyed the life of fame he's won—until now, when being recognized nearly gets him killed. Everyone wants the key to his father's work as a cryptologist. And Lukas fears that his mother and sister, who have vanished in the wake of the German invasion of Belgium, will pay the price. The only light he finds is in meeting the intriguing Willa Forsythe.

But danger presses in from every side, and Willa knows what Lukas doesn't—that she must betray him and find that cypher, or her own family will pay the price as surely as his has.
