From the Back Cover
Willa Forsythe is both a violin prodigy and top-notch thief, which makes her the perfect choice for a critical task at the outset of World War I--to secure a crucial cypher key 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 distraction he finds from his worry is in meeting the intriguing and talented Willa Forsythe.
But danger presses in from every side, and Willa knows what Lukas doesn't--that she must betray him and find that key, or her own family could pay the same price his surely has.
"I enjoyed this inspirational romance, and the author's depiction of Lukas and Willa's journey to greater faith and love. All White's characters show real humanity, and her depiction of Lukas's young sister is particularly sympathetic. The era, the early days of WWI, is convincingly portrayed. Recommended, especially for lovers of sweet romances and/or inspirational reads."--Historical Novels Review
"A beautifully written romance with plenty of suspense."--Library Journal

My education skipped over Belgium with sort of a "Germany tramped through Belgium" summary, and at a young age I didn't bother to imagine what that was like. This story filled in the gaps that I didn't know existed. One important reminder one can draw from the book is this: even in the midst of a nasty war, God blesses and protects those who depend upon Him.
Set during the beginning of WW1 Willa who was abandoned at age 6 is now a professional thief and prodigy violinist. She takes a job with Mr. V who is connected to the government in some way. She is sent to find and steal a cypher key from none other than Lukas De Wild renowned violinist and son of a cryptologist. As their lives cross paths the two learn many lessons most importantly about faith, trust and love. Lukas trying to find and protect his family while Willa must take the key from him to save her own family and help her country.
This is definitely one that I will reread!

To begin with, Lukas is nothing like Peter, and especially at the beginning I rolled my eyes at him so many times. But he is a dear man, and one that was hard NOT to like. Willa was fun to explore, and I loved all the intricate storylines to her character. But Margot probably was my favorite of the three. She was amazing! I was astounded at her knowledge at fourteen, and she made me appreciate mathematics so much more. I love how much she thinks and acts like an adult, and how the end came to play into the story for her ;) Then, there are the bad guys and fascinating characters along the way...like icky Corr and strangely interesting Mr. V.
The setting is amazing, and I loved that this was during the early years of World War I. The facts about Belgium immigrants really fascinated me, and everything with finding the key astounded me even more. This whole book is rather shocking, to say the least!
The romance irked me at times, because Lukas' attitude is not too unlike other playboy characters, who somehow find a girl that outdoes all the rest of the woman they've been around with (okay, okay, I concede that it's better than the fellow keeping on his rocketed path downward). Thankfully, we are never seen much of his past...just a couple hints here and there. Plus, the girl he picked was good for him after all. There are few kisses, a couple semi-detailed.
Spiritual content came forth even more in this book than the first. I loved the progress of it, and how it played a factor into all three MCs. I would have liked to see a little more with Lukas in the end, like Willa, but he obviously had changed for the better ;) There was a good thread of Salvation which I very much appreciated.
Now to the writing style...some moments it positively irritated me. There were lots of fragment sentences and run-ons. Grammar teachers would be horrified! But somehow, this author writes it in such a way that pulls you in and in general I couldn't find much fault with it, except that I do love sentences that hold long, beautiful descriptions.
I simply can't wait to read Barclay's story. I absolutely loved him in this book, and would have been happy to see more of him!! This story has a lot of depth and feeling, and will hardly leave you without some expression of amazement by the end ;)
