“The reigning queen of historical fiction” — Fiona Davis, New York Times bestselling author of The Lions of Fifth Avenue 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 everything—beauty, wealth, and the dashing Prince Philip of Greece sending her roses—but 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 letter–the 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 danger–and their true enemy–closer…

This story is just too long and repetitive. An easy 200+ pages could have been cut out. Just not for me.
Normally I would pass on a book like this. I’ve been inhaling Gothic thrillers with duel timelines for months now.I am so very happy I picked this up! I didn’t want it to end. The characters were women I wanted to be friends with. I didn’t want their story to come to an end.I was worried about the hefty 600+ pages but found myself pleasantly surprised at how fast the book went. I was so drawn into the story and mystery that I would lose myself in the pages.I read a lot and order a lot of those books from Amazon but this is one of the first times I have so throughly enjoyed a book that I felt the need to leave a review.It made me laugh, cry, and feel outrage for what characters have to go through. I felt as if I had become a part of their lives. Kate Quinn writes so beautifully, drawing you in and painting a vivid picture of a very specific time and place.It also left me wanting to know so much more about the real Bletchley Park women and the secrets they held.I highly recommend this book!
Wow. Now I know why this has been on so many “Most Anticipated Reads” for 2021 lists. What a remarkable story! A debutante, an impoverished dreamer, and a spinster, the most unlikely of friends, come together to work in Bletchley Park: Britain’s best kept war secret. As the war drags on, their jobs become more important, more strenuous, and more secretive. Just when they think nothing could sever their bond, D-Day arrives, and blows their friendship apart. The war ends and years go by. When one of them reaches outside the walls of her prison, asking for help, will the old friendship they’d rather leave behind be strong enough to save her?
Bletchley Park, and the important work taking place there, was unknown to the average English citizen but to Osla, Mab, and Beth, it was about to become their whole world. Using each of their individual talents, these three women will help change the course of World War II.As members of the famous codebreaking team, these women will help defeat the Nazi army as it makes its way across the continent. Along the way, Beth realizes that there is a traitor in their midst and receives the ultimate punishment to keep that information hidden. Together, the trio brings the traitor to light and mend fences for past grievances along the way.I have long been interested in the roles women played in World War II and the story of the codebreakers, who were among some of the brightest minds of the time, is one of the best. While there were many brilliant men at Bletchley Park, such as Alan Turing, the creator of the Turing machine, the use of young, bright female students was unheard of. Women’s colleges were scoured and the best of the best were brought to Bletchley to serve their country.Kate Quinn has proven she is a master of World War II historical fiction. The attention to the details of the codebreakers’ lives is exquisite. Using the names and histories of actual female codebreakers such as Osla Benning and Valerie Glassboro (grandmother of Kate Middleton). While this not a quick read, 626 pages to be exact, it is a story that drew me in and kept my attention. I know that when purchasing a novel by Quinn, that I am going to be told a tale that will keep me interested from page one.
I have read two of Kate Quinn’s other novels; The Alice Network and The Huntress, both of them fabulous too. I was entrenched with these three female characters; I felt every emotion they were feeling. Alot of surprises and twists and turns and I especially enjoyed reading the Afterward and learning so much more . I knew a little about Bentchley Park but after reading this book, learned so much more. I read alot of WW2 historical fiction and learn from each book and when I think about how brave, how tough, these men and women were, what they had to live through, I have so much respect and admiration for them. This is a Must Read book.
I’ve read The Alice Network and The Huntress each in one sitting—the prose is engaging, the characters smart, and overall both are a step above a lot of other historical fiction I’ve read. The Rose Code is a tremendous read, my favorite out of the three. There’s a lot to the story but it doesn’t drag. The three main characters are both flawed and have redeeming qualities—none are irredeemable, and while backstories are fleshed out, they don’t take away from the plot. Quinn’s development of a certainly neurodiverse, possibly autistic, character was well done, not condescending, but certainly representative of the challenges (and wins) being wired differently can have. I saw a lot of myself in Beth (and her colleagues) and have a bit of renewed hope for a place that welcomes what neurodiverse people can do. I’ll be rereading this one, as well as revisiting the Bletchley Circle series I enjoyed when it first came out. I highly recommend The Rose Code to other readers who enjoy complex characters and compelling historical fiction.
I had to force myself to put the book down to sleep. The plot moves along nicely so it is not a slow read. Worth the time if you like WWII period fiction.
WHat spoiled a good story was the constant reliance on Americanisms. Not just US spellings but lack of infinitives, eg ‘ I will write you, will you write me back?. ‘ She looked out the window’ . No sign of ‘to’ or ‘of’. My gripe is this is supposed to be British based so a good editor would have changed sidewalk, sanitarium etc. Not sure whether middle class Mayfair debs really did use language like ‘spiffing , bally and fizzing’. Interesting subject though. Enjoyed the book , just annoyed with the language.
I can barely believe I looked through my Kindle library, found this book & began to read on 10 April 2021- the day after Prince Philip died.I am not quite sure I like public figures, still living & breathing, being used as characters in novels, particularly romantic ones.However, I do like KQ’s work & she is a good storyteller.I am not summarising the book itself, I leave that to the synopsis, or to others.Kate, if you are reading this – I must dispute a working class family living in Shoreditch would have a telephone – unheard of.Also, Osla’s flat would be the size of a ‘broom cupboard’, not a boot cupboard – boots are kept in a room…A few other Americanisms, but you write for a wide geographical audience.Some US authors really grate, but not you.I do not mean that in an condescending, patronising manner, just as a fact.This is an enjoyable read, as all Kate’s books are.A very talented lady she is.
Kate Quinn has delivered a ‘tour de force’ with this novel. The detail, research, and invention are all impressive and success is assured here. The subject concerns World War 2 when German submarines were destroying thousands of tons of shipping and so threatening to bring Britain to its knees, the only nation in the war standing between civilisation and Nazi domination. To combat this horrific threat Bletchley Park, a large house in copious grounds, was set up in Buckinghamshire to assemble brilliant men and women, many from the ivory towers of Oxford and Cambridge, mathematicians, scientists and others who developed a flair for breaking German codes. Osla, Mabel and Bethan were three young ladies of very different backgrounds. Osla a Canadian debutante with upper class connections and, through the war, a girl friend of Prince Philipp of Greece when he was ashore, and god daughter of Earl Mountbatten. Mabel, or Mab as she styled herself, was from a poor London East End background who dropped into this life by chance, but with aspiration. Bethan, now Beth, was even more extraordinary. Her mother, a religious zealot, treated her so badly and thought her stupid but it happened that instinctively she could solve crosswords quicker than anyone and was recruited and put to work in the most important code breaking hut. The author has brilliantly used a great many facts and woven them in with her own imagination to produce a riveting story of tension, authoritarian excess and ultimately a spy novel. The traitor at Bletchley is not uncovered till late in the book and not before remarkable happenings with regard to romance and Beth being locked away in a mental institution to prevent her revealing the traitor. A wonderful novel, eminently readable, which will keep you on your toes for the considerable duration.
Three women met at the start of WW2, little to nothing in common other than Bletchley Park.This story starts directly after the war, and jumps between two time frames.I found it a brilliant, well woven story, full of colour.I only wish I had read this prior to visiting Bletchley, a great read if you enjoy books of enduring friendship, the war and going adversity
A bit long but what a story. The whole section in the asylum made me angry, uncomfortable and worried but I had to read on. The central mystery isn’t really introduced until quite a long way in when you’re already invested in the characters. I found myself thinking about the situation even when I wasn’t reading the book! By pure chance I started reading this on the day of Prince Philip’s funeral, totally unaware he’s a main player in the narrative – although not a main character. I am really interested in history but not keen on ‘historical novels’ ! However this was different. Read it, you ‘ ll love it and learn about our recent past. Did you know lobotomies were still practised in this country as rencently as 1973! !
