I enjoyed this book a great deal. The friendship among Osla, Mab and Beth develops as they embark on careers at Bletchley Park at the beginning of WWII in England. None of them are experienced workers, but have various talents and earn their places in the workforce. As women, they don't always get the respect they deserve, but they are proud to be a part of the defense effort.
I liked their give and take, the loyalty among them and the ways their lives developed throughout the book. There is drama, humor, a mystery and romance in a well-researched historical novel. ( )

With the men at the front, many young women find themselves joining the war effort including intelligence work at Bletchley Park (BP), the center of English intelligence during WWII. Osla is out to prove that she is more than a silly deb beginning with building planes and moving to BP where here language skills are essential. Mab grew up poor on the East side but is versatile and tall, a must for the women working with the bombe machines.

The two meet on the train to BP and are billeted with the Finches, a local family. The daughter, Beth Finch is odd (today we would put her on the autistic spectrum) and under her mother's abusive thumb. However, recruitment to BP allows her to use her neurodivergence to crack code.

Alternating between the war years and postwar wedding of Philip and Elizabeth, the story explores the roles of the women, their friendship and later break, and the role they continued to play after the war.

Quinn is a great writer whose characters and setting open up much as the Rose Code.

I received a complimentary print copy of this book from William Morrow and Library Thing ER in exchange for an unbiased review.

In Autumn 1939, Hilter‘s advances seemed unstoppable and they thought Enigma was unbreakable.

The story travels from London, November 1947 back to December 1939. Three very different women meet because of the the war. Mab Churt has dreams of going to school to be a writer. She is forced into the work force at 14 years old as she was the 5th of 6 children that her single mother tried to raise on her own when her father abandons them. Mab works tirelessly to improve her situation by taking secretarial courses to get a better paying job. It isn’t long before Mab receives a curious letter that directs her to go to Bletchley to serve her country.

Olsa Kendall, a debutante born in Quebec but raised in London, gets kicked out of her expensive boarding school. She returns home to work with her cousin Sally Norton drilling holes in Durol sheets for aircrafts. Her mother is divorced 3 times and hardly a source of support for Olsa. She finds herself set up to meet Prince Philip, a cadet at Dartmouth related to the king and his uncle Lord Dickie Mountbatten. Olsa also receives the same vague letter instructing her to report to Bletchy Park, which appears to be an asylum.

Olsa and Mab meet on the train ride to Bletchy Park, where they soon realize they were recruited to be code breakers. The government places them as billets in the home of Beth Finch and her controlling dismissive mother. Olsa and Mab live there under very strict rules while working all hours of the day and night at Betchley Park. They are under orders to never disclose the nature of their work to anyone, not even family.

Olsa and Mab discover that Beth is very talented in cryptology and bring her into the secret work at Bletchy Park. This is extremely difficult as Beth has never stood up to her overbearing mother and must lie daily as to the nature of her work. She soon triumphs over the imposed guilt and negative feelings her mother has bestowed upon her over years. She learns that the negative comments from her mother were not true and that she actually is intelligent and capable of important work.

Years later when Mab and Olsa have moved on in their lives trying to forget the disaster that befell them at Betchley Park, they receive a mysterious message from someone begging for their help. They realize the message is from Beth and wonder if they can trust the claims of Beth being locked in the clock tower. The women realize that their work has bound them in ways that can never be broken and that they still have one more mission to complete to finally make peace with the past.

I highly recommend "The Rose Code" This novel has many threads of plots written in beautifully executed with pulse-gripping suspense. Within the unputdownable novel is a book club "The Mad Hatters" who are codebreakers enjoying themselves with old classics, however, more is in store for their part in this unforgettable story. Also, a trio of heroines melds spy-hunting with love stories that will bring you laughter, tears in this gripping page turning historical fiction novel.

"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 civilization 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." ( )

It's 1940, and three very different women accept a mysterious summons to Bletchley Park, where some of the greatest minds in Britain are working on . . . well, nobody knows what, exactly. As debutante Osla, ambitious East Ender Mab, and village girl Beth embark on their top-secret duties helping break German codes, they forge a friendship that will be the strongest of their lives -- until it breaks, leaving the three of them estranged, and one of them in an insane asylum. When information emerges pointing to a traitor at Bletchely Park, can the three put aside their differences and come together to break one last code?

I read this just after reading The Alice Network, and liked it even better. Bletchley Park is a fascinating historical setting, and Quinn's writing and characters are excellent. I was surprised at the reveal of the mystery, and enjoyed working my way through it with the characters. Definitely recommended for historical fiction readers. ( )
