The Rose Code by Kate Quinn
In 1940, as England prepares for WWII, three women answer the call to break German military codes. Years later, in 1947, the three friends-turned-enemies are reunited by a mysterious encrypted letter, the key to which lies buried in the betrayal that destroyed their friendship. They 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.
