First things first: This novel is written in first-person plural, giving one collective voice to the women whose husbands worked on the Manhattan Project. The ''we'' construction jars in the beginning, but it becomes easy to slip into the rhythms of Nesbit's prose and imagine the dusty, sunbaked mesas of Los Alamos, where the wives — uprooted from their families, their mail censored, not really sure what their husbands were doing — managed to create a vibrant community of their own.
