The Number of Love is truly all about the numbers. This was the first book by Roseanna M. White that I have read and boy was it a good place to start. The first book in her series “The Codebreakers”. The author weaves historical information with the fictional characters and scenes beautifully. Margot, one of the main characters, is intelligent, independent and forward thinking. I enjoyed reading about a woman who is portrayed in this light, when this would have been against the cultural norm of the era. If you are a fan of numbers, you will be intrigued by the codes and numbers throughout that make up Margot’s thoughts, job and world. Without giving any spoilers, Room 40 and cryptography are now on my list to research. This read was fascinating to say the least. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series. If you are looking for a mystery that captivates not only your emotions but is thought provoking, The Number of Love will do the trick.
