Atomic Love | Jennie Fields
54 posts | 43 read | 20 to read
In 1950s Chicago a former scientist on the Manhattan Project finds herself torn between two men: the physicist she loved passionately during the war, and the handsome, wounded FBI agent now investigating him for espionage, in this breathtaking novel of betrayal, love, desire, and secrets. Chicago, 1950. Rosalind Porter has always defied expectations--in her work as a physicist on the Manhattan Project, and in her passionate love affair with co-worker Thomas Weaver. Five years after the end of both, her guilt over the results of her work and her heartbreak over Weaver are intertwined. She has almost succeeded in resigning herself to a more conventional life. Then Weaver gets back in touch--and so does the FBI. Agent Charlie Szydlo wants Roz to spy on Weaver, whom the FBI suspects of passing nuclear secrets to Russia. Despite her better instincts, Roz has never stopped loving Weaver, but now finds herself drawn to Charlie, even as she's not sure she can trust him. Charlie, whose time as a prisoner of war haunts him, is not sure he can trust himself, especially around Roz. As Roz's feelings for each man unexpectedly deepen, so too does the danger she finds herself in. When it becomes clear the Russians will stop at nothing, Roz will have to choose: The man who taught her how to love, or the man her love might save?

Roz has always loved science. She becomes the first women who gets to work on attaining the power from atoms. Roz knows the new power can be used for good but after they are used to drop the bombs to end the war she is not sure if their scientific findings should have taken place. A love story filled with history, Russian spy‘s, and the FBI. Good read.

Rosalind is a physicist who worked on the Manhatten Project, but between feeling guilt about the deaths caused by an atomic bomb and a broken heart she had to leave. Now 5 years on she is asked by FBI to meet up with her ex-lover Thomas and see if he is a spy for the Russians. This novel has spies, love, science and a women trying to get ahead in a man's world. I very much enjoyed it. #books

I enjoyed this book! Rosalind is a physicist who worked on the Manhattan Project who had an affair with her colleague that ended in heartbreak. Years later she is asked to spy and join the FBI to uncover if her ex passed intel to Russia. It‘s an entertaining story fictionalizing two true history facts. A member of the Manhattan Project passed info to Russia and one member was a woman.

So as from Tuesday we go back into lockdown, so everything will be closed apart from essential shops. Anyway I went to the library again and took out these plus some others. It will hopefully be only for a month! #tbr

BarbaraBB You‘re going into lockdown again too? Will it ever stop? You are in the UK, right? 3y
emmaturi No in Switzerland. Hopefully with the vaccines out now next year will be much better! @BarbaraBB 3y

Finished this one while my son naps on my lap this morning 💙 I started it right before he was born in August and haven‘t had much free time to read lately! This book had some interesting parts, however, it fell short for me. It was a little choppy, everything kind of fell together too neatly in places and the suspenseful parts weren‘t really suspenseful...It was okay, but not great. #botm

#BookReport - Finished 2 books this week. I‘ve picked up and put down like 5 books and couldn‘t get into much.

Currently reading Spinning Silver for #LMPBC which I‘m really into, listening to Peril at End House on audio and reading Winter Counts

#WeeklyForecast - Finish these 3 books and hopefully get into Girl Serpent Thorn and a mystery. I have so many library books right now!

This book was okay. I was really interested in the spying, the Russian conspiracies and the Science stuff. I just felt like this book was more about Roz‘s feeling and a lot of romance talk. I should have realized it would be like that based on the title but still. I‘m glad I read it, but I could have used more espionage.

Flingogal That's disappointing, I love historical women in science fiction! 4y

A little espionage and a little love...Rosalind, Weaver, Charlie. Who betrays who and who falls in love? Started out a little too slow for me but I‘m glad I stuck with it.

I love historical fictions, but unfortunately this one fell flat for me. I actually almost DNF‘d it but decided to stick with it since it‘s my #bookspin . I was expecting spies, espionage, and romance. Though there was some romance, it was uneventful and frankly irritating. Rosalind was suppose to be this big scientist, but her skills were never utilized. This story had so much potential, I‘m saddened by the let down. Sept 16/20 #bookspinbingo

A page-turner from #BOTM! Between pick and so-so. There‘s a love triangle and the main character likes to drink scotch. A lot. I liked the historical fiction aspects of the Cold War and also dealing with the aftermath of the Manhattan Project. Also liked the Chicago setting 👍

I actually can‘t remember the last time I read a physical book! It‘s just too easy to keep picking out new ones on my kindle.

Today feels like the first day of Fall here. Perfect weather for sitting outside with a brand new book! Here‘s hoping my August botm pick lives up to the hype 🍂🍁📚

A little heavy on the romance for me. I found myself skipping over sections 🤭 2 - 2.5

A good read, a tie between 3.5 and 4 🌟👍🏻 I wish the ending was a bit more satisfying, kinda an “Eh” which surprised me because the rest of the book kept me interested.

Overall, this was a great story. I liked the spy plot and I really love Charlie's character. I just wish we would've had more of his backstory and would've squashed his insecurities by the end of the story. I wasn't a fan or Roz, she needed more character development. I also wish Weaver's character had a better end to the story. Other than that, this was a beautiful story and I recommend it to avid readers.

Good. Set in the cold War in America it is a rollercoaster of book as it is full of subterfuge and spies with a spot of romance. Also it questions the morality of the atomic bomb and its effect on people who made it. Thank you Penquin Random House for inviting me to read this via Netgalley.

4 💫💫💫💫 I felt this novel was more a humdrum romance then a suspenseful spy one. It was boring to me but I found the historical context interesting, the main character started to get on my nerves, obsessing about one of the Male characters that hardly makes an appearance.

Annoyed with #botm shipping. I picked my box on 7/31, and here I am on 8/5 and technically USPS doesn't even have it yet? My books are usually here by now. 🤨
PA> IL> PA is a weird detour to get to Maryland...

InBooksILive Mine took almost 2 weeks to get to me and I‘m in PA! I swear it took the longest routes possible. 4y
TheLibrarian This is happening to both my boxes and I live in PA and I ordered 7/30. This just baffles me. 4y
katlyn447 Looks like I'm not alone! My box hasn't moved since I posted this... Honestly, this is the kind of thing that makes me rethink my subscription. Free shipping isn't worth it when this is what happens; I'd be willing to pay for an upgrade to a better delivery service. 4y
