So when Romy finds herself at the centre of a scandal, no one can quite believe it - least of all her mother Ailsa, who is also the head of her new school. Ailsa is quick to hold Romy's new boyfriend and his parents responsible for what has happened. But as mother and daughter reveal their very different versions of events, a darker truth emerges. It soon becomes apparent that Romy isn't the only member of her family harbouring secrets, and her disgrace becomes the catalyst for the unravelling of all those around her...

The Wives Of Los Alamos

Author:

TaraShea Nesbit

Synopsis:

Their average age was twenty-five. They came from all over the States, and arrived in New Mexico ready for adventure - or, at least, resigned to it. But hope quickly turned to hardship in the desolate military town where everything was a secret; including what their husbands were doing at the lab... They were constrained by the words they couldn't say, the letters they couldn't send, the freedom they didn't have. Though they were strangers, they joined together: babies were born, friendships were forged, and children grew up. But then 'the project' was unleashed, and even bigger challenges faced the women of Los Alamos as they struggled with the burden of their contribution towards the most destructive force in human history: the atomic bomb.
