The Atomic Weight of Love by Elizabeth J. Church
It’s 1941, and budding ornithologist Meri Wallace sacrifices her career plans to follow her physicist husband from Chicago to Los Alamos, where he is engaged in secret work on the atomic bomb. As the decades pass, Meri struggles to reconcile her passion for science with the expectations of traditional womanhood. Church’s lively historical novel explores the evolving challenges and opportunities for women in science and in public life.
