As a determined nation mobilizes for war in the anxious days after Pearl Harbor, beautiful, talented Life magazine photojournalist Claire Shipley finds herself on top of one of the most important stories on the home front. In the quiet labs of New York City’s renowned Rockefeller Institute, some of the country’s brightest doctors and researchers are racing to find a cure that will save the lives of thousands of wounded American soldiers, as well as countless others—a miraculous new drug they call penicillin. Lauren Belfer dazzled readers with her debut novel City of Light. In this highly anticipated follow up, she deftly captures the uncertainty and spirit, dreams and hopes of a nation at war. A sweeping tale of love and betrayal, intrigue and idealism, A Fierce Radiance is an ambitious and deeply engaging novel from an author of immense talent.
