“In 1943, families of mathematicians and scientists, escorted under high security, move to The Hill – Los Alamos, New Mexico. Not knowing where they’re going or why, these wives from all over the world cut their ties with friends and relatives to live in isolation, without telephones or uncensored mail. Based on the history of the development of ‘The Gadget’ – the atomic bomb – this novel reads like a collective diary of hundreds of wives. This unique first-person plural recounting of real events culminates with varied reactions to the use of this powerful weapon on the people of Japan. Nesbit portrays these delicate issues brilliantly!” — Jane Morck, Third Place Books, Lake Forest Park, WA
