The Astronaut Wives Club by Lily Koppel
  

Lovereading view...

Having a husband with a dangerous occupation is one thing, to have him actually leave the planet another. Lily Koppel’s book tells the stories of the women married to the first American astronauts, their loyalty and support for each other. Having to become adept at media appearances and interviews, they drew together into the Wives Club, their friendships lasting long after the last space voyage.

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

Kerry Bridges

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.
