    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. Together with the other wives they formed the Astronaut Wives Club, meeting regularly to provide support and friendship. 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.

    What did you love best about The Astronaut Wives Club?

    Very enjoyable book, the astronauts from a different point of view. Could have done without the narrator trying to do voices but overall, wonderful narration.

    Four weeks after Navy SEALs had killed Osama bin Laden, the President of the United States stood in Arlington National Cemetery. In his Memorial Day address, he extolled the courage and sacrifice of the two young men buried side by side in the graves before him: Travis Manion, a fallen US Marine, and Brendan Looney, a fallen US Navy SEAL. Although they were killed three years apart, one in Iraq and one in Afghanistan, these two best friends and former roommates were now buried together - "brothers forever".

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kevin T. Collins?

    He is overly dramatic. The story can stand on its own.


    Any additional comments?

    Touching story. We'll written. Wonderful young men
