Publisher's Summary

It's March, 1943. World War II rages across the globe, and 25-year-old Nora Lindstrom is about to take a huge leap of faith. One of the few women in the male-dominated field of physics, she travels to an undisclosed destination to undertake a vital, top-secret project that the government insists could help the Allies win the war.

At 18, Mary Trask is ready to put high school and the boy who wants to marry her in her rear-view mirror. But what alternative could the future hold for the dyslexic daughter of a train conductor? When a cousin in Tennessee provides Mary with a cryptic job opportunity, she jumps at the chance to rewrite her life.

Nora and Mary are drawn together under impossible circumstances. As the fate of the world hangs in the balance, they find solace in their love for each other. But in a place where secrecy is paramount, their relationship is forever changed by the consequences of secrets well kept.

In this new historical fiction novel, award-winning author Lynn Ames returns us to a time where the contribution of women was often overlooked and the casualties of war were not always limited to the battlefield.

The Rest of the Story

Lynn Ames offers a pointed look at a period of American History from the perspective of two women who fall in love when the stakes were incredibly high if discovered. America is involved in a World War and the efforts of the nation are concentrated solely on achieving military superiority and victory over Japan. It was also a time period when being discovered in a relationship with someone of the same sex meant you could be fired at will, even imprisoned. We know the ending of Nora and Mary's story from Lynn's book, Chain Reactions. What we don't know, is how the love developed between the formidable Dr. Lindstrom nor how they managed to have a relationship at such great peril to themselves while enveloped in a secret world at Oakridge. Ames answers the questions that burned in my mind when I finished Chain Reactions and gave me an incredible history lesson while doing it. She is a master at creating fiction based in fact. She never disappoints. Emily Beresford's narration is, as always, masterful. She brings out the innocence of Mary's character and Nora's constant worry for them both. Extremely well done.
