lead The author endorsements are impressive Ann Patchett, Delia Owens, Rebecca Wells, B.A Shapiro I was drawn in because our heroine Rosalind Porter is a physicist who worked on the Manhattan Project with Enrico Fermi himself.In truth, this book is a Romance The characters are tropes strong powerful tropes that appeal to a lot of people but with no fresh insights or depth A strong, capable, heroine who has doubts about her capabilities because she has been betrayed by the man she loved, torn between the now contrite betrayer and another man who is damaged both physically and emotionally by his war experiences and yet who is capable of a great love that only she can supply Add in a national emergency and evil Russians Stir It s exciting but not new.I found the writing to be heavy handed and a little trashy The male female stereotypes annoyed me This is one of those historical fiction novels where the characters especially the women have modern sensibilities even while struggling with historical problems And Rosalind s constant love of science doesn t actually get a lot of airplay we don t hear much about her previous work or what scientific puzzle is appealing to her now.If you love romantic historical thrillers, this book is for you If you are looking for in depth characters and some insightful commentary about strong women who were able to achieve something

review Atomic Love, by Jennifer Fields, was the story of Rosalind and her quest for science Rosalind was once an important physicist assigned a top secret position on the Manhattan Project In a world full of men and war, Roz meets Weaver, a fellow scientist, and falls in love Weaver is her first serious relationship, but soon becomes her arch nemesis Weaver destroyed her life and ambitions by seeing that she lost the position she held so dear.Enter FBI agent Charlie, many years post war Charlie is Atomic Love, by Jennifer Fields, was the story of Rosalind and her quest for science Rosalind was once an important physicist assigned a top secret position on the Manhattan Project In a world full of men and war, Roz meets Weaver, a fellow scientist, and falls in love Weaver is her first serious relationship, but soon becomes her arch nemesis Weaver destroyed her life and ambitions by seeing that she lost the position she held so dear.Enter FBI agent Charlie, many years post war Charlie is looking to trace Weaver back to the war and the possibility that he may have been supplying the Russians with US war secrets, specifically regarding the A bomb Charlie approaches Roz in hopes that she can get close to Weaver and seek out a confession Can Roz overcome her anger toward Weaver for betraying her, long enough to trap him, or do lost feelings of love linger It isn t long before Roz and Charlie, working together closely, also become drawn to one and other Ultimately, Roz must decide between lost love that ended in betrayal, or follow her newfound relationship and a future with Charlie Above all else,Roz dreams to re enter the world of science, her true passion.Atomic Love is a historical fiction with so muchIt is a book of mystery and espionage, love and betrayal, spying and secrets Roz is a genius, but playing a man s game when women were expected to stay at home My personal opinion of Roz is not that attractive Her answer to Weaver Charlie and leading them both along, while involved with each physically and emotionally, is not a trait of a strong female protagonist As a matter of fact, her actions justify the very stereotype of women in the 1950 s Roz simply led too much with her heart, and other body parts, and did not use her head wisely I am glad, however, that she did indeed seek her spot in the scientific world once again In that I am a female chemist and chemical engineer, I feel for her position, even now in the year 2020 What I would have enjoyed is a bitscientific detail within the writing I appreciated Roz s internal strife with the use of the atomic bomb Was it a scientific wonder, or had she partaken in the devastation of a country and its 200,000 people Something for all to ponderThank you to Netgalley for the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for my personal opinions and review Netgalley atomiclove What a big, juicy novel It s the story of Rosalind Porter, a brilliant female scientist on the

What a big, juicy novel It s the story of Rosalind Porter, a brilliant female scientist on the Manhattan Project, now working behind a jewelry counter in Chicago s Marshall Field s department store There s a love triangle involving a former co worker of Rosalind s who reappears four years after breaking her heart, and the gentle souled FBI agent she s drawn to, who s emotionally and physically damaged from his years as a Japanese prisoner of war And, yes, there are several fervent lovemaking scenes The time setting is evoked with the most heart racing big elements Russian agents down to the smallest, vivid details like 1950 s fashion dictates requiring ladies to wear gloves in Chicago s grueling summer heat The entire ride is pure pleasure all the way, managing to be both page turning while pulling you in deep Rosalind Porter was one of the few female scientists working on the Manhattan Project and she loved it Then the war ended and so did her passionate affair with a fellow scientist Thomas Weaver when he unceremoniously dumped her She s put her life back together and is unhappily working at Marshall Field s jewelry department when Thomas reappears and wants to resume their love affair At the same time, FBI agent Charlie Szydlo shows up with serious accusations about Thomas s possible treasonous Rosalind Porter was one of the few female scientists working on the

Thomas s possible treasonous activity Caught in between, Rosalind must decide who she can trust and comes to realize that her own life might be at stake if she makes the wrong decision I picked this book up thinking it was just historical fiction and found myself caught up in the steamy romance between very likeable characters Set in Chicago in the 1950s, I thoroughly enjoyed strolling through the old neighborhoods with these characters The next step in historical fiction the Cold War and the women who played a role Fields is writing something different for woman s historical fiction and she does it well Strong, but flawed characters make up the story and quickly moves a long in interesting story I feel this book would appeal to readers who want a character centered historical fiction as well as a good Cold War espionage.

About the Author: Jennie Fields

When I was child, bookstores and libraries were sanctuaries, my invitation to adventure, escape, satisfaction Wanting to be a part of the action, I wrote my first novel when I was six Years later, my first real book arrived in bookstores.But it s taken me until my fifth novel to tackle a topic that s always called to me women in science My mother was trained as a biochemist at the University of Chicago during World War II, and remained at the University afterwards, researching cures for cancer But as was typical in that era, when she married, she gave up her career to be a wife She spent the rest of her life aching for science As a result, science flowed into her cooking, cleaning, our healthcare She measured, she weighed, she considered, she hypothesized.My mother s best friend was her cousin Jean Walking together to campus each day, they discussed everything But no matter how many times she asked, Jean refused to tell my mother a single detail about what was going on at the Metallurgical Laboratory where she worked As it turns out, Jean was a clerical worker for the Manhattan Project and stayed true to her oath of secrecy until long after the atom bomb was dropped.That story of silence stuck with me And my research revealed there was one female physicist involved in those early Chicago years of the Manhattan Project Leona Woods, the youngest member of the team Atomic Love is in no way based on Woods life Still, her presence at that critical time and place in history allowed me to create my main character, Rosalind Porter, a female physicist who is asked to risk love and limb to protect her country.Adventure Escape Satisfaction I hope you will find these things andin Atomic Love.http jenniefields.comhttps www.facebook.com jennie.field
