A black and white photo of young women monitoring gigantic panels covered in knobs and dials both altered my view of this story and inspired me to write The Girls of Atomic City I was struck by the youth of these women, the size of the room, the unfamiliar technology They did not know they were enriching uranium and would not know until a bomb detonated above Hiroshima What were they thinking What did the Manhattan Project look like through their eyes I had my way in I tracked down everyone I could who had worked on the Manhattan Project in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, during World War II. I entered a top secret compound, one that straddled two worlds that which existed before and that which followed the dawn of the nuclear age Octogenarians as my trusted guides, I found not only fission and cyclotrons, but rations and dances The satisfaction of doing one s part mixed with the anxiety of wartime It was a world of pioneering spirit and propaganda, of scientific gains and personal loss Loved ones were far away, deadlines and informants lurking much nearer There was always waiting for news, for cigarettes, for letters, for the end of the war When that end came, it was a relief and a shock Secrets were revealed, others still remain. I hope readers will be as fascinated by this moment in time as I was, as I still am.
