Superbly narrated by Jennifer Van Dyck, this exquisite novel spans the life of a unique woman whose brilliance is obscured by her overbearing husband until later in her life. Van Dyck portrays the uncertainty of young Meridian Wallace at the outset of her college career in 1941, and then her naïve devotion to the middle-aged professor who will become her husband--and also a scientist developing the atomic bomb in Los Alamos. Van Dyck voices Meridian with depth, articulating her dazzling intelligence and delicately revealing her growing identity as she finally pursues her own passions. Van Dyck also has the knack for convincingly distinguishing each character. Her narration is marred only by mispronunciation of "nuclear," a small tarnish in a splendid performance.
