Description

“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 best-selling author of Her Last Flight)

The New York Times and USA Today best-selling 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.

The year 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.

The year 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....

Excellent!

Fascinating interweaving of fact and fiction. One quibble - Keswick in the Lake District is pronounced “Kesick” with a silent “w” (like Warwick). The mispronunciation was distracting (and annoyingly puzzling) but other than that the voice work was really impressive. Definitely worth reading. Five stars all round.

One of the best Audible titles I have listened to!

I chose The Rose Code because I thoroughly enjoyed The Alice Network and The Huntress and I was not disappointed! I was intrigued with the glimpse into Bletchley Park and thought the characters were interesting and well developed. The narrator was very good. The story drew me in and although I was not surprised at the outcome, it was a wonderful ride!

Wonderful Book!

This is the best book I have read in ages! Whilst listening sadly Prince Phillip passed away. The story and characters were so interesting. I hope to visit Bletchley in the future when we can travel again. The reading was excellent.

Great book!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I didn’t want it to end, yet I couldn’t wait to hear the ending. The audible cast was excellent. I highly recommend it. It’s possibly my new favourite book. Thank you Kate for this incredible story that you told so well.

Great Read

A wonderful and intriguing storyline. I loved the way historical figures were introduced in to the plot and the characters’ development and their reasons for their actions was enthralling. Saskia Maarleveld is a top narrator!

Brilliant

A bit of slow start but so good! Loved ‘Alice Network’ didn’t like ‘The Huntress’ so pleased that ‘The Rose Code’ lived up to the author’s talent. Bletchley Park is an amazing site for a historical novel. Recommend it for sure!

Better than expected

After seeing the movie "The Imitation Game" , I could not imagine how a book about the same topic could be as good. This story is written about the same events but with a different perspective. Everything about this book was fabulous, including the reader! Definitely worth the listen.

My Favorite Book!!!

The Rose Code by Kate Quinn is my favorite book! I was immediately pulled into the story of 3 different women who under normal circumstances would never meet. They had the common desire to serve their country. The main 3 characters are young women from different walks of life. (1) Oslo -- nick-named Princess (2) Beth, a young woman who had lack of self confidence (3)Mabe, another woman who wanted to improve her station in life. They meet and work at BP in different capacity. They work on breaking codes. There is deceit, friendships, hope, heartbreak and an awesome twist. I loved the story.The Rose Code by Kate Quinn is one of the best audiobooks that I have listened to this year! I absolutely loved it. Thank you #NetGalley for allowing me to review this book before publication, I loved it so much that I purchased my own copy. The storyline moved so well and the characters were intriguing. The author is fantastic with her imagery and added so many factual details. The narrator, Saskia Maarleveld really brought the characters to life with her voice and emotions. This is a standalone listen by the author of The Alice Network and The Huntress. I loved the twists in this book and learned some things from the time period too. Kudos to the author on not letting me guess who the spy was.

Male reviewer says "Yes men, get this book!".

Always tentative when I read good reviews from females because I've started books with 4.5+ women reviews that sound more like a fashion show review than a story and I stop listening after an hour or two.

My interest in the Enigma gang pulled me in for this one. Before I was a third through, I bought it for my daughter. I loved it, she'll love it and it's my guess you'll love it too, male or female. It's a rare talent that can write books that appeal to both sexes (a talent Mrs. Rhys Bowen has also).

Hate stories where a 90 pound women breaks the arms of three 200 pound body guards, I'd like those better if they just gave her a super power. On the other hand, I love stories where women are smart, sassy and don't take <stuff> off of anybody. These gals ended up being superheroes to me.

Ms. Quinn, I tip my hat to your extraordinary story telling talents.

This was, to my knowledge, my first book narrated by Ms. Maarleveld. It won't be my last... I'll just keep my hat off ...

Enthralling! Beautifully Written & Narrated.

Loved this book ~ couldn't stop listening! I enjoyed The Huntress a lot but I loved The Rose Code. This is one of those books you desperately wish wouldn't end. The female characters are well developed, the suspense is well crafted but ultimately it's the easy dialogue and all the details that keep you immersed in the world of Bletchley Park. Narration is alsmot spot on (I'm picky about narrators, there were only a few slips). There have been so many excellent books about women's roles in WWII lately and I really hope several, like this one, are adapted for the big or little screen. More of the world should know the courageous, ingenious women who came before us.

Well balanced story

It started a little slow and it took awhile to sort out all the characters but once that happened it was golden from there.
The story has several story lines and just when you thought it was coming to conclusion there is more.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Not as well organized

Loved Kate Quinn's other books but this one was a bit disjointed and hard to follow. Switched back and forth too much and I was losing my place on who was who. I've "worn out" the Back-30-seconds button because I couldn't remember who was talking! Great story, though. I did enjoy it - might have to read it again to get the things I've surely missed.

Triumph

It's a mystery. It's a love story. It's full of detail about Britain's breaking of the Enigma code. I loved it.

I like ‘em 5 stars

This was a very good book and I enjoyed it. I will say though, several times while listening I thought, have I read this before? Maybe it’s because I’ve listened and read too many WW2 historical fiction titles, or maybe it’s because I recently watched the movie The Imitation Game, but the story felt like one I’d heard before. Also, I’ve never had to do this before, but I had to slow the pace of the narration down to .9x bc she read so fast! Definitely worth a listen though and this is a nit-picky review from a seasoned listener ;)

I could not understand the reader because it was too fast. It all ran together. I was very disappointed. Author should be disappointed too.

Thoroughly enjoyed

I really enjoy listening to stories set in during World Wars. The strength of people to endure, serve and help each other at the lowest of times. The weight of women doing what at the time would be considered “mans work” and being fully successful is enlightening. I felt like I knew each of the women in this story. Thoroughly enjoyed!
