A new human interest novel is “The Wives of Los Alamos” by TaraShea Nesbit. The wives arrived in New Mexico ready for adventure, but hope quickly turned to hardship as they were forced to adapt to a rugged military town where everything was a secret – including what their husbands were doing. They joined together – friendships were formed, babies born, children grew up – and Los Alamos gradually transformed into a real community: one that was strained by what they couldn’t say out loud or in letters – and by the freedom they did not have.
