"The hidden history of Bletchley Park has been waiting for a master storyteller like Kate Quinn to bring it to life. THE ROSE CODE effortlessly evokes the frantic, nervy, exuberant world of the Enigma codebreakers through the eyes of three extraordinary women who work in tireless secrecy to defeat the Nazis. Quinn's meticulous research and impeccable characterization shine through this gripping and beautifully executed novel."

Beatriz Williams, New York Times bestselling author of HER LAST FLIGHT

The New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Huntress and The Alice Network returns with another heart-stopping World War II story of three female code breakers at Bletchley Park and the spy they must root out after the war is over.

1940. As England prepares to fight the Nazis, three very different women answer the call to mysterious country estate Bletchley Park, where the best minds in Britain train to break German military codes. Vivacious debutante Osla is the girl who has everythingbeauty, wealth, and the dashing Prince Philip of Greece sending her rosesbut she burns to prove herself as more than a society girl, and puts her fluent German to use as a translator of decoded enemy secrets. Imperious self-made Mab, product of east-end London poverty, works the legendary codebreaking machines as she conceals old wounds and looks for a socially advantageous husband. Both Osla and Mab are quick to see the potential in local village spinster Beth, whose shyness conceals a brilliant facility with puzzles, and soon Beth spreads her wings as one of the Park's few female cryptanalysts. But war, loss, and the impossible pressure of secrecy will tear the three apart.

1947. As the royal wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip whips post-war Britain into a fever, three friends-turned-enemies are reunited by a mysterious encrypted letterthe key to which lies buried in the long-ago betrayal that destroyed their friendship and left one of them confined to an asylum. A mysterious traitor has emerged from the shadows of their Bletchley Park past, and now Osla, Mab, and Beth must resurrect their old alliance and crack one last code together. But each petal they remove from the rose code brings dangerand their true enemycloser...

Kate Quinn is one of my very favorite authors. This is the third book of hers that I have read and I have been spellbound by all 3! They are based on real people and are so well written. They each highlight important roles that women played during wartime and for all the historical fiction that I read, I have learned a completely new aspect of the times with each story.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! ( )

3.5***

Quinn uses her talent for historical fiction to explore the women (and men) who worked at Bletchley Park during WWII, and who were credited with breaking the German Enigma code. The novel focuses on three women: Osla (a debutante who is dating Prince Phillip), Mab (self-made, rising out of poverty and intent on making an advantageous match), and Beth (a mouse of a girl living under her mother’s thumb, but with a head for ciphers). And, as had become almost mandatory in this genre, there is a dual timeline. Though at least here, both are historical: 1940 and 1947.

I was fascinated to learn more about the goings on at Bletchley Park. The secrecy required of workers there was paramount, even long past the end of the war. One result was that the workers became their own community, with sports teams, dances, dining and affairs helping to relieve the stress of their work. Still, the emotional toll resulted in several workers breaking down and some even being confined to high-security mental asylums, as the government could not risk the possibility that they would leak information. Quinn shows all these aspects in the novel.

She also highlights a strong friendship between three women who would never have met were it not for the war work they undertook. I really liked how Quinn showed how the friendship between these three developed. And how their loyalty to one another, though severely tested, became central to the conclusion of the story.

Saskia Maarleveld does a marvelous job of narrating the audiobook. She has a lot of characters to handle, men and women, young and old, from different regions of England, and she is up to the task. ( )

Three very different women are brought together during WWII while working at Bletchley Park, a secret intelligence base in England where they broke codes to stay ahead of the Germans.

This is now my favorite Kate Quinn novel. Mab, Osla, and Beth were all so interesting and I enjoyed reading each of their stories; there wasn’t one that I wanted to skip to get to the other. Osla is a high class woman looking to prove that she's more than just a “ditsy deb” by joining the war effort. Her language skills find a purpose at Bletchley Park, but she’s always looking for something that will make her stand out. Mab is a tall working class woman looking to snag a husband. Unlike Osla, she is invested in each monotonous job she is given because she feels like she’s making a difference. Beth is the genius of the group, but her whole life she’s been told that she’s stupid. Working to break codes soon becomes her obsession and opens up a new world for her. By 1947 these friendships are in tatters, but the women reunite to break one more code to find out who betrayed them.

It’s difficult to process why I love this book so much-- 3-4 star books are easy to understand, but when a book completely captures me and leaves me on a book high it’s hard to put into words why. I think what really makes this book special is how Quinn balances the highs and lows in the lives of her characters. Historical fiction can often be pretty bleak, and there are certainly dark nights of the soul in this book, but it also has moments of great joy. Those moments of joy are what make the devastating moments worth reading. I also love that there’s a level of suspense as the book slowly reveals what happened to the characters during the war to get them to the places that they are as well as a need to catch the traitor who was in their midst. These things plus characters that came to life on the page are what make this book amazing to read.

The Rose Code is a fantastic historical fiction that is both character-driven and suspenseful. It highlights the work of code breakers, translators, and typists in the war effort while telling a thrilling and emotional story about these three women. It is a novel of friendship and betrayal, romance and heartbreak, and the isolation of secrets and the discovery of home.

*Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Follows the lives, loves, losses, and triumphs of three women during WWII, who find themselves working at the now-famous code-breaking center of Bletchley Park.

I generally don’t go for historical novels about Strong Women Doing Strong Things during WWII, but this one really surprised me. The characters are excellent, seamlessly woven into actual historical events. The love stories are interested and well done, and there’s even a nice mystery plot that ties everything together and manages to deliver a nice twist. ( )
