  • GET THIS BOOK! AMAZING

    Oh, My Gosh! Go get this book! WWII is such an amazing era. Not because of the war, but because of the amazing people who lived during that time and the things they had to do to continue living. The Rose Code is the story of three amazing young women whose job it is to break code. They work in huts and must keep everything a secret. No sharing what they learn…with anyone. Osla is dating Prince Philip and has everything a girl could want but she wants more. She wants to prove that she is not just a society girl. Mab wants to move up in society and away from the poverty she was born into. Beth is a mouse of girl who does everything her mother says but is brilliant in solving puzzles. They seem an unlikely trio, but they work together, live together, and become best friends. As they figure out how to live their lives, they find a fight that they cannot get past and do not speak to each other for several years. When a call for help brings them back together, bringing their history as codebreakers into their lives again, they cannot help but step up and do what is necessary. I really enjoyed seeing how their history came back around in their present. The tension was obvious but doing a job they were trained to do is most important. Kate Quinn wrote a WWII book about a part of WWII that I had not heard of before. I am now looking for more stories set around Bletchley Park.

  • Bletchley Park up close and personal

    I received a free trade paperback of this wonderful historical novel from Goodreads Giveaway, Kate Quinn, and Publisher Harper Collins on February 19, 2021. I have read this novel of my own volition, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. Kate Quinn writes of the period of WWII, with characters who represent the mores and lifestyles of the time and place. A journey through her work is an authentic trip into the past. With this novel, the secrets of yesterday come alive for us. We have all seen hints and shadows of the life and achievements that took place in Bletchley Park, but with this book, you will have the heart of that accomplishment and the personal achievements that made possible the two-year shortening of WWII. Thank you, Ms. Quinn, for bringing to us the all-out efforts and sacrifices of these heroes - of both genders - and an inkling of the intensity of the work they put into breaching the secrets of the German Enigma coding machine.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Edge of my seat read

    I couldn’t read this book fast enough. The Alice Network and The Huntress were two of my favourite books by Kate, I’ll be adding The Rose Code to that list as well.

  • ABCD

    A great read. Characters both major and minor well developed. Captured the day to day lives of people in an unbelievably tense situation. Mystery to the final chapters. Lots of suspects but difficult to point the finger. Good for readers who like a mystery combined with “real world’ history.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Thrilling tale of Bletchley Park codebreakers

    This is an amazing book that delves into the secret world of the Bletchley Park codebreakers during World War II. From brilliant mathematicians, to quirky puzzle masters, to linguists, to the mechanically minded, to clerical workers, they all played an important part in breaking the enemies' codes and helping the Allies win the war. While following the relationships of three very different women who work at BP, we get a fascinating look at the pressure of codebreaking, the strain of keeping everything top secret even from their families, and the empowerment these women felt for the first time in their lives. Kate Quinn makes even the tedious parts of codebreaking appear fascinating and vital. The storylines are at times heartbreaking, but the overall mystery of what went wrong among the main characters and the search for the traitor really keeps you speeding through the book to unlock the clues and find the solution. And what a great ending! I listened to the audiobook version, and I highly recommend the narrator. She does a fabulous job with all the characters and makes the scenes unfold like a thrilling spy movie.

    Thanks for your feedback!
