The Aviator’s Wife, by Melanie Benjamin

Find in catalogAn eye-opening story based on the facts of Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s life as child and later wife of Charles Lindbergh, first aviator to fly solo across the Pacific Ocean. The author has used letters and archives to factually base her story that shows that Anne Lindbergh was the true hero of the couple. I won’t spoil the surprise but the author does include a chapter after the fictional novel to show how deeply she based her story on research…some very surprising elements in Mr. Lindbergh’s life that were not known until after his death. This is a woman as hero story.
