Reviews

"A highly-charged love story that reveals the dangerous energy at the heart of every real connection. The power of separation and loss propels Atomic Love into unexpected orbits of intrigue and conspiracy as riveting as the science they study."--Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing

"Atomic Love is a novel of science, love, espionage, beautiful writing, and a heroine who carves a strong path in the world of men. As far as I'm concerned there is nothing left to want."--Ann Patchett, New York Times bestselling author of Bel Canto and Commonwealth

"Brimming with espionage and passion, Atomic Love shines a light on the private lives of scientists involved with the Manhattan Project and the growing threat of nuclear Russia. Taut, atmospheric, and wholly immersive, Atomic Love is a thrilling read for historical fiction lovers." --Chanel Cleeton, New York Times bestselling author of Next Year in Havana

"Atomic Love is so propulsive that "page turner" doesn't do it justice...At the heart of it all is a brilliant, damaged woman determined to save herself and the whole human race. The world could not be in better hands." --Margaret Renkl, author of Late Migrations

"Atomic Love had me in its thrall from page one. How rewarding to follow these sympathetic, brilliantly drawn characters through their affairs of state and heart. Thank you, Jennie Fields, for this terrific, atmospheric, suspenseful and wholly gratifying read."--Elinor Lipman, author of Then She Found Me and Good Riddance

"A page-turning thriller that's also an exploration of the competing pressures on women that still resonates today. This one goes to the top of your pile." --B.A. Shapiro, author of The Art Forger

"Full of intrigue and good old fashioned espionage, Fields has created a flawed and ferocious heroine in the intelligent Rosalind Porter. A captivating must-read with a cast of crafty characters so engaging I was sad to see it come to its glorious end." --Noelle Salazar, author of The Flight Girls

"The smart, warmhearted, and haunted heroine at the center of Atomic Love is just one of the complex characters that enrich this imaginative page-turner. Field's sharp eye for detail never slows the action, but sensuously immerses the reader in time and place." --Laura Moriarty, author of The Chaperone

"Atomic Love lives up to its name--explosive and passionate, this is a story that you will not want to put down, and that will resonate long after it has ended. Fields has an unerring gift for recreating the past, and making it live and breathe like the present."--Kitty Zeldis, Not Our Kind

"A beautifully rendered love story entwined in a page-turning espionage thriller. Fields packs the pages of this wonderful novel with fascinating facts about the Cold War and characters that are complex and compelling. A must read!"-- Anita Abriel, author of The Light After War
