Come Down Somewhere by Jennifer L Wright

Such an interesting read! I had no idea about all of this happening during and after WWII in New Mexico. Based on the true happenings of very secrets high level military testing happening on land in New Mexico during the war, this novel follows two girls who came from different backgrounds but both had connections to what was happening. Olive’s family is falling apart. Her father died, then her uncle showed up and now her brother is different and headed off to war. Meanwhile her mother is not who she used to be and has decided to Olive needs to go live with her grandmother for now. Being used to roaming on the ranch, she now has to live in a city and attend school, which means following all of these rules and being an outcast. But Jo tries to befriend her, also newer to the school the two seem to hit it off until Olive finds out who Jo’s father is and all of the anger she has tried to get past comes roaring back. After an incident at church one day, the two are forced to work together over various projects and each one does not realize they need the other. A decade later Olive has not been seen in months, and Jo is called back to this awful place trying to find the answers she has been searching for. The truth of what was really happening at that base, and the fallout years later is becoming known along with the fear of the Cold War. I also love how the title wraps into this story. This was such a good novel and I had no idea this had happened.

Thank you to the author for a free ebook, I also preordered this novel to have a hard copy since it is so good! 

~ Goodreads – About the Author ~

Jennifer Wright has been writing since middle school, eventually earning a master’s degree in journalism from Indiana University. However, it took only a few short months of covering the local news to realize that writing fiction is much better for the soul–and definitely way more fun. A born and bred Hoosier, she was swept off her feet by an Air Force pilot and has spent the past decade traveling the world and, every few years, attempting to make old curtains fit in the windows of a new home.

She currently resides in New Mexico with her husband, two children, one grumpy dachshund, and an overly demanding guinea pig. 

She is a member of ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers Association), and can be found on Facebook, Instagram, and sometimes (but very rarely) on Twitter. She also blogs at

“If It Rains” is her first novel and is available from Tyndale House Publishers wherever books are sold.
