Blast From The Past
The Astronaut Wives Club (Book Club Pick)
With Special Guest Clare Whitfield, Apollo 9 Astro-Wife
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Red Leather Diary comes The Astronaut Wives Club, the real story of the women who stood beside some of the biggest heroes in American history. As America's Mercury Seven astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, television cameras focused on the brave smiles of their young wives. Overnight, these women were transformed from military spouses into American royalty. They had tea with Jackie Kennedy, appeared on the cover of Life magazine, and quickly grew into fashion icons. They formed the Astronaut Wives Club, meeting regularly to provide support and friendship. Many became next-door neighbors and helped to raise each other's children by day, while going to glam parties at night as the country raced to land a man on the Moon. As their celebrity rose-and as divorce and tragic death began to touch their lives-they continued to rally together, and the wives have now been friends for more than fifty years.
