Which to buy for what? None of these are really hunting or target handguns, so I'm assuming you're interested in them for self defense and concealed carry?
The PPK is a classic firearm and has the cool "James Bond" thing going for it. Its really a bit too large and heavy for pocket carry (the role of most .380 pistols these days) and has a slide mounted safety which a lot of people find slow and difficult to operate during an emergency. Overall, a nice pistol but not a first choice as a CC weapon for most people.
The Sig P238 is an excellent, high quality pocket gun that's popular with a lot of people. It has better than average sights and a great trigger. It is a single action pistol, though and many people are not comfortable carrying a cocked and locked pistol in their pocket. It's also one of the more expensive pocket pistols on the market. So, a good pocket pistol with some reservations.
The S&W Model 60 Pro is a great small carry revolver. The steel frame Model 60 is about the smallest, lightest gun I'd want to shoot full blown .357 mag ammo (most S&W j-frame pistols are alloy frame and so light that shooting magnum ammo is actually painful). Despite being a small frame gun, with the 3 in barrel and steel frame it's not really suited to pocket carry and like the PPK is better in a belt holster. So, a great CC gun if you like revolvers and belt carry.
All three of these can be considered for concealed carry, although all have limitations and drawbacks (as dies any gun you could choose for CC). You just meet to understand the strengths and weaknesses of each.
EDIT: I just saw you are looking for a gun for a recoil sensations female shooter. In that case I would recommend the Model 60 Pro loaded with .38 SPL rounds. I would not recommend a SA pistol to someone presumably new to guns and the Walther, while not a bad choice in terms of recoil has the frame mounted safety (not decocker) which I personally don't care for on a SD gun.
Hope that helps!
