This was the first book by the author that I have read. I enjoyed the story of three women, their lives war, family, friendship and love. These ladies discover just how smart and strong they are and I found them so interesting. The story well researched and well written. There are parts, however, that I thought it dragged a bit. I say, keep reading. I look forward to reading more by this author.

rabck from dvg; three women from different social standings are recruited for codebreaking at Bletchley Park during WWII. Osla is a socialite who is dating Prince Philip of Greece. Mab is a social climbing working class girl. The two bunk at Mrs. Finch's home, where they meet Beth who has been told that she is slow, but is actually a whip at crossword puzzles....and cracking codes. The story flits back and forth between the war years, and a small period of time leading up to Prince Philip & the royal wedding to Elizabeth. During the war, Beth is committed to an asylum and Osla & Mab don't really question it. After the war, Beth finally is able to sneak out a coded message to Mab & Osla. The ending and who was the traitor was a bit trite, but the coding years portions were engrossing. Between Silk and Cyanide is an excellent parallel book written by one of the Bletchley Park exiles, who was sent to SOE for codebreaking instead. It has lots of pictures of coded and uncoded messages.

Another historical fiction set during WWII. I was unaware of Bletchley Park and the code breakers and the part it played during the war. This was a well researched book.
