    (581)

    For much of her life, Anne Morrow, the shy daughter of the U.S. ambassador to Mexico, has stood in the shadows of those around her, including her millionaire father and vibrant older sister, who often steals the spotlight. Then Anne, a college senior with hidden literary aspirations, travels to Mexico City to spend Christmas with her family. There she meets Colonel Charles Lindbergh, fresh off his celebrated 1927 solo flight across the Atlantic. Enthralled by Charles’s assurance and fame, Anne is certain the celebrated aviator has scarcely noticed her. But she is wrong.

    Audrey says: "The Megalomaniac's Wife"
    "Fictional bio about fascinating woman"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Aviator's Wife again? Why?

    I think I would like to read the book rather than listen again. I felt that the narrator's voice was "too old" for the chapters that portrayed Ann in her younger years. It took away from the feeling of young love, infatuation, and love. I think the content of the book might "read" differently.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ann - of course. I read the excellent bio of Charles Lindbergh by Scott Berg so got the "male" perspective. She has always intrigued me.


    Did Lorna Raver do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes with the exception of the above criticism.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Listening - made me want to reread/listen to "Gift from the Sea"
