TPB Literary Book Club - The Atomic Weight of Love

In the early 1940s, Meridian Wallace, a gifted ornithology student at the University of Chicago, sets aside her own ambitions to follow her husband to Los Alamos, where he will work on a secret government project. Their marriage, built on a mutual passion for science, becomes stifling when Meridian is left to housekeeping and socializing with the other scientists' wives. Patriotism and blind faith conflict with the desire to pursue her own career and be more than a mother and housewife.
