A Portrait of Loyalty
Updated: May 15, 2021
Anyone who follows what I read and what I've posted, then y'all know that I ADORE Roseanna M. White's novels. I can still remember when I first saw her The Reluctant Duchess on the shelf of Books-A-Million and thinking, "Hey, that looks interesting." A couple days later, I'd put a hold on it and the other two books in the series at the library and within a month, I was a Roseanna fan.
Well, her newest series, The Codebreakers, is about to come to an end next month with the release of her latest novel, A Portrait of Loyalty. Today, I'd like to share with y'all how you can get first dibs on this wonderful book.
The release date is set for September 8th, but you not only have a chance to pre-order A Portrait of Loyalty on Amazon (https://amzn.to/3feh2VG), Barnes & Noble (https//bit.ly/2XbYz68), Christian Book (https://bit.ly/2XaCip8), and her online store--signed copy, guys--(https://bit.ly/30cG5Ef), but you can also receive a serial sneak peek in your inbox when you sign up for Roseanna's newsletter here: https://bit.ly/39FY4WM. Even if you've already signed up for her newsletter, you need to sign up specifically for the sneak peeks.
Now, I can assure you that, after sneaking peeks of her previous novels The Number of Love and the beautiful On Wings of Devotion, these sneak peeks are TOTALLY worth it! Plus, if you sign up for her newsletter, you'll get notified about her array of other treats, like podcasts, blog posts, book news, and new items in her online store.
So, if pre-order discounts and sneak peeks haven't convinced you to invest in Roseanna's A Portrait of Loyalty, then I have two more bullets. This beautiful blurb:
He sees patterns in what she deems chaos. She sees beauty in a world he thought destroyed. Zivon Marin was one of Russia's top cryptographers until the October Revolution tore apart his world. Forced to flee to England after speaking out against Lenin, Zivon is driven by a growing anger and determined to offer his services to the Brits. But never far from his mind is his brother, whom Zivon fears died in the train crash that separated them. Lily Blackwell sees the world best through the lens of a camera and possesses unsurpassed skill when it comes to retouching and re-creating photographs. With her father's connections in propaganda, she's recruited to the intelligence division, even though her mother would disapprove if she ever found out. After Captain Blackwell invites Zivon to dinner one evening, a friendship blooms between him and Lily that soon takes over their hearts. But both have secrets they're unwilling to share, and neither is entirely sure they can trust the other. When Zivon's loyalties are called into question, proving him honest is about more than one couple's future dreams--it becomes a matter of ending the war.
And my review of On Wings of Devotion here: https://novelist056.wixsite.com/graceajohnson/post/on-wings-of-devotion-review
I absolutely loved On Wings of Devotion, in which I met both Lily and Zivon (which proved that I'll love A Portrait of Loyalty) and truly believe that it is one of the best Christian historical fiction releases of the year. Roseanna is an amazing writer who perfectly balances mystery, action, and suspense with humor and wit, heartfelt romance, and a wonderful story of God's love and grace. She has a great eye for detail and emotion, which, coupled with her gorgeous prose, always results in a terrific novel!
Keep an eye out for more updates on A Portrait of Loyalty, including my review sometime at the end of this month!
