The Astronaut Wives Club by Lily Koppel


What a wonderful read this hidden little treasure of a book is.  Not only does this detail the strength of these women, it documents how smart they were despite the times determining their destiny to a large degree.  They were conditioned to support their men in their space quests and largely take a back seat to their accomplishments and fame, however, this book really individualises these amazing women, their daily lives, and how they coped with the stress, loss, danger and least of all the unrelenting press of the day!  It was difficult to have a favourite; they were all amazing and admirable women in their own right.
