The Astronaut Wives Club by Lily Koppel
Discover the true story of the women who stood beside some of the greatest heroes of American space travel in this book.

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. Together with the other wives they formed the Astronaut Wives Club, providing one another with support and friendship, coffee and cocktails.
