Atomic Love is Jennie Fields' new book. It’s a work of historical fiction set in Chicago after WW2, where we meet Rosalind Porter, who five years previously was a bright physicist on the Manhattan Project and in the midst of a passionate love affair with her colleague Thomas Weaver--but suddenly, she loses everything. When Weaver reappears in her life—so does the FBI. Special Agent Charlie Szydlo wants Roz to spy on Weaver, whom the FBI suspects of passing nuclear secrets to Russia. As Rosalind's feelings for each man deepens, so too does the danger she finds herself in.
