A novel about the space war between the US and Russia for the best weapons
This book is factual and all the characters are real people. It is a real life action adventure. However, the spy plot with the lead character is entirely fictional. This novel is about a young woman recently completing a Peace Corps assignment in Peru who takes a job in a medical Clinic on Ebeye Island, Kwajalein Atoll, Republic of the Marshall Islands. Life on the islands can be idyllic but also very hard. The lead character has a great ability to cope with events. She makes friends easily and enjoys the people and the life on the islands. Because of her beauty and the scarcity of single white females in the area she is constantly watched and pursued by the lusty young men. She is there when the US Navy seals come to find the missing black box from an incoming missile from Vandenberg. And, what fantastic stories those guys had to tell.
