“This exceptional book presents the true perspective of those intense, high-energy, high-visibility years of Apollo, especially the challenging roles of the families. Susan and Frank Borman were leaders in the community, respected and admired by all—and this book will tell you why. Susan’s story is the most accurate description of the lives of the ‘astronaut wives’ I have ever read, from the glory of success to the grievance of loss. Enjoy this insightful book, and you will learn more about the human story of Apollo, especially about many of us who were fortunate to have participated.”
—Astronaut Dave Scott - Gemini 8, Apollo 9, Apollo 15

A truly inspirational novel on one of America’s great heroes! Not only was his life inspirational, but his wife was also a hero in her own right. What they endured and the problems they overcame, while holding on to each other through out it all, makes this a must read for all!
Thank you to #NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for my honest review.
