Enjoy this online chat with historical fiction author Kate Quinn. She will give insight into her writing process and discuss her newest book The Rose Code.
"I've loved history all my life, and I hope to share that love with you. Too often we grow up thinking history is boring, dull, nothing but flat lists of dates and places. In my books I hope to show the life, the laughter, and the humanity that runs through our common past. Whether writing about World War I France or post-World War II London, ancient Rome or Renaissance Italy, I bring you history with an irreverent twist: stories to make you laugh, cry, then laugh some more." - Kate Quinn

About the Book
A beautiful blue-blooded debutante, a tart-tongued London shop-girl, and a shy crossword-solving spinster join the war against Nazi Germany as codebreakers of Bletchley Park, only to find that the real puzzle lies inside the Park itself as a traitor sets them against each other in a betrayal reaching past the end of the war.
