Inside Box 1663
As the author herself put it, this is "the lives of men and women who lived and worked in grim secrecy to hasten the end of the war." It is the story of stressful lives, cryptic conversations between husbands and wives, leaky faucets and water shotrages, censored mail, and sharing a post office box with every other person in town PO Box 1663, Santa Fe, NM.
