"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...

This book deserves 10 stars!
I loved everything about this book, including the narrator. Loved her voice and she was very easy to follow. What an interesting story about smart women who worked at Bletchley Park during WWII, focusing on Osla, Beth, and Mab. Three very different women who'd likely never become friends form a bond that's tested as they're forced to keep the oath they took to never tell what their actual job is, to keep the government secrets they learn every day.
Throw in there the fact that Osla Kendall (IRL) dated Prince Phillip before he married Queen Elizabeth in the story and it adds to the mix of suspense, tragedy, romance, history, and what makes a family.
The author did a fantastic job of sucking me into the story built on real and fictitious characters, real history, and an interesting story that kept me guessing right up to when the traitor was revealed.
I consider this a must-read for all historical fiction fans! Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me a copy of the audiobook. ( )

Three women met as workers at Bletchley Park in 1940, each trying to do what they can (or what they are allowed to do) for England. Interesting as real characters are woven into the story, like Prince Phillip, Princesses Elizabeth and Anne and even Alan Turing makes an appearance, as does Churchill. When Beth discovers evidence of a traitor in their group, she is betrayed and spends several years in an asylum. She finally finds a way to assemble her old friends and track down the actual spy, who is now working for the Soviets. ( )

I think it was a me thing, I was constantly getting distracted and the multiple timelines just confused me. ( )

Osla, Mab and Beth are recruited to work at Bletchley Park in 1940. It’s very secret and they are not allowed to talk about their work decoding German messages to help the soldiers at the front (even amongst themselves, as they work in different areas). They all have very different backgrounds, but with Osla and Mab boarding at Beth’s house, they become fast friends. Osla, a well-off debutante, has been dating Prince Philip of Greece; Mab is looking for a husband; Beth is very quiet and shy and will not say a peep to her overbearing mother who takes her for granted.

But something happens. One of the girls ends up in an asylum, and in 1947, she sends a note to the other two to come, even though things ended with bad blood between them all.

Probably the only thing I didn’t like was the convenience of the timing of an event near the end. Thinking more about it, they likely would still have figured it out (in a different way) before the very end. And wow! I was surprised at how much in this story was real! The characters, some based wholly on a real person and some on a mix of people. But even the events… so many of them really happened. ( )

The Rose Code. Kate Quinn. 2021. What a fascinating novel! It is a historical romance set at Betchley Park, where the code-brakers stuggled to break the Enigma code used by the Germans. I knew about the code but not about Betchley Park where scholars, military and civilians worked around the clock to break the code. It is told through the lives of three women, an upper class young deb who dated Prince Phillip, a lower class woman who struggled to overcome her status by educating herself, and a mousy, painfully young woman who was a whiz at working crossword and other word games. Quinn really did her research on this one! Exciting and suspenseful. ( )
