I loved this story—partly for its wonderful characters, but also partly because of the history woven seamlessly into its pages! I feel like I learned a lot more from this book than from some of the others, history-wise; I knew the Bolshevik Revolution happened right around the time of World War I, but it’s one thing to know and another thing to see it through the eyes of a character you’re empathetic with. That part was very well done—that, and seeing the effect of the Spanish Flu. How horrible! Makes the pandemic we’re living through seem relatively light in comparison.

The characters? They were spot-on, as I’ve learned to expect from White. She knows her characters and somehow manages to think with their mindsets, and the results are astounding. I’d love to take some character creation classes from her! Whether they are musically, mathematically, or artistically inclined, she does a great job bringing that out in everyday circumstances that just go to prove how much they are geared for those things—it’s a beautiful experience as you read.

Overall, I really enjoyed this story. It wasn’t my favorite of the whole series (I’m a loyal Margot fan), but I felt like it did an excellent job wrapping up the series, and was the perfect addition to them overall. As a historical fiction addict, this one tickled my fancy in that way, but also provided some sweet but not over-the-top romance, which was lovely. If you enjoy that combination within the realms of a well-told story, I’d recommend you check these books out.

I was given a complementary copy of this book, and this is my honest opinion of it. ( )

A Portrait of Loyalty by Roseanna M. White is a long, deep book that I read while bedridden with Covid. It was a bit of a slow start for me because I did not connect right away with Lily or Zivon. However, plenty of intrigue kept me interested in the story and I later found the lead characters more relatable. Eventually, Zivon became my favorite character as he was a true hero, a man of devotion and excellent character.

One thing that I appreciated in A Portrait of Loyalty (and all the other books in this series) was how the characters wrestled intensely with their spiritual issues. Lily and Zivon do not settle for blind, easy answers. The author dives deep with characters that doubt and struggle in a way that feels very authentic and true to real life. As the characters grapple with circumstances and issues, the truths that they discover are powerful and relevant for the reader.

A Portrait of Loyalty stands as the third book in The Codebreakers series by Roseanna M. White, but it can be read on its own. I recommend reading all the series, in order if possible, as each one is excellent in its own way.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a copy of this book by the author or publisher. All opinions in this review are my own. ( )

The third and final book in Roseanna's Codebreakers series was amazing. Fantastic. Superb. I absolutely loved it! I also feel like a good book is one that makes you feel. You feel invested in the characters plight. You feel like you are there with them. And that is just what Roseanna does agiain and again.
The amount of research Roseanna puts into her stories are so obvious. Everything is perfect, down to the last detail.
Lily Blackwell is a photographer and volunteer nurse, determined to do all she can for the war effort. Then there's Zivon Marin. He was a puzzle. There was so much to learn about him, I absolutely loved his character! Lily's light hearted attitude was the perfect balance to his quiet nature. The sweet romance between them was the perfect offset to such a suspenseful story!
I always love how Roseanna connects her books, brings back the characters for you to see again and again. It makes it all feel like one big family!
I laughed. I cried. I chewed my fingernails in suspense! Once again Roseanna wove a beautiful story that will leave readers delighted and wishing it didn't have to end.

The Codebreakers is an outstanding series and this book is the perfect way to wrap it up! A Portrait of Loyalty has everything that I love in a book: a fictional story based on historical facts, two incredible characters who get their own chance to shine, lots of intrigue and suspense, and an extremely strong faith element. Lily BLackwell is a photographer and Zivon Marin is a cryptographer who begin as friends but working together in the war effort shows them that they share so much more and even when rumors about the Russian Zivon's character run rampant, Lily remains steadfast and faithful. Who wouldn't wish that they could find happiness...together?

This story is set in London in 1918, during the time of World War I and the Spanish Flu, and author Roseanna M. White has given me a new appreciation of these historical occurrences. I've gained a whole new knowledge of the spies and the cryptographers who influenced the outcome of World War 1 and I've been reminded just how similar the Spanish Flu and the current Corona Virus pandemic really are!

A Portrait of Loyalty is a remarkable story of trust, loyalty, and forgiveness during the worst of times and I recommend it to all who enjoy historical Christian romance.

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. A favorable review was not required and no monetary compensation was given. These are my own thoughts. ( )

It’s hard to see series this well written come to an end, but this book did its job well. White masterfully creates a story full of heartbreak, loss, hope, and love set against the backdrop of WWI London. This story follows Lily Blackwell as she uses her photography skills to help the English war effort. When she crosses paths with Zivon Marin, a Russian cryptologist who has left his mother country due to his political beliefs, her heart will never be the same. When his enemies follow him to England, can she come to understand his history and clear his name? A wonderful conclusion to the Codebreakers series.

I received this book as a free gift from the author and publisher. My opinions are my own. ( )
