Description

Dr. Karen Piper's outstanding memoir deals with her event-filled life and the unique environment in which she spent her childhood and adolescence--and what happened after she left the secret naval base where wartime missiles were developed. Booklist called her memoir "an incredible view of a little-known community, from WWII all the way through 9/11, and examines how her family navigated life in a town built for war."
