By turns touching, confiding, and
matter-of-fact…Engrossing, dense,
and believable.

—publishers weekly, starred review

Astounding…Nesbit brings alive
questions of war and power
that dog us to this day.

—booklist, starred review

Impressive . . . . Together and alone
and each in her separate way,
the wives are left to celebrate or lament
the wonder or the horror of what their town had done.

The New York Times Book Review

[A] fascinating and artful debut…
This is a novel—and a writer—
of consequence.

—paula mclain, author of the paris wife

Recommended both for its important subject matter and for the author’s vivid storytelling.

Library Journal

I am in awe of this novel…
The Wives of Los Alamos will be read
and reread and remembered.
