The Aviator's Wife

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences.
• Share the title & author so that others can add the book to their TBR lists!

'Welcome back, sir.' The Great Aviatrix saluted my husband and flashed her toothy grin.'
This fictionalized account of Anne Morrow Lindbergh is fact-based and somewhat disturbing to me at 89 pages into the book. At this point, I find "Lucky Lindy" to be an unlikable man. Ann seems to be making all the wrong choices regarding this man. I hope things improve as the story unwinds, however the foreshadowing does not bode well.

Every Tuesday is First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where we share the first paragraph or two of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon.  Care to join us? Feel free to grab the image and link your post.


He is flying.
Is this how I will remember him? As I watch him lying vanquished, defeated by the one thing he could not outmaneuver, I understand that I will have to choose my memories carefully now. There are simply too many. Faded newspaper articles, more medals and trophies than I know what to do with, his accomplishments; schools and institutions proudly bearing his name. 
Hoping you'll leave a comment and say hello!
Happy Reading!

I enjoyed the book and the history behind it. Some have objected to the depiction of Anne as the put-upon wife.
