The author has written about the most awesome achievement of our time - the splitting of the atom, and the manufacture of the atomic bomb. She takes us into the lives of the scientists responsible for the creation of this fearful weapon, and we are close to them as they slowly become aware of the potential force of the thing they are striving to create. We live beside them in their homes, and stand beside them in their laboratories. The sequence of the events of the creation of the bomb is true, but fictional characters are used to tell the story.
