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.
