Early 1940s. Mildred Groves is gifted-- and cursed-- with the ability to see the future. She holds a secretary position at the Hanford Research Center on the banks of the Columbia River in remote South Central Washington, which exists to test and manufacture a mysterious product that will aid the war effort. Only the top generals and scientists know that this product is processed plutonium, for use in the first atomic bombs. As Mildred starts to have prophetic dreams about what will become of humankind if the project is successful, she eventually risks everything to question those in power, putting her own physical and mental health in jeopardy. .-- adapted from publisher info.
