We finally hear the voices of women…an unvarnished truth that turns history on its pointy-hatted head.
—helen simonson, author of MAJOR PETTIGREW’S LAST STAND and THE SUMMER BEFORE THE WAR
Part mystery, part love story, beautifully told and meticulously researched…
—anton disclafani, author of THE YONAHLOSSEE RIDING CAMP FOR GIRLS
With gorgeous, period-inflected prose, Nesbit takes us back to the earliest days of New England… I read it at a gallop. What a marvel…
—laird hunt, author of IN THE HOUSE IN THE DARK OF THE WOODS
Restoring women’s voices, primarily through Alice and Eleanor, adds a new and welcome dimension to our history, made more vivid by solid research and clear, concise prose. In Nesbit’s hands, history once again comes alive.
Haunting…fascinating…A powerful testament to women’s strength and ability to hold a community together during a disturbing time…
—wall street journal on the wives of los alamos
Impressive…Together and alone and
each in her separate way, the wives are
left to celebrate or lament…
