Charyl Link reviewed “The Astronaut Wives” by Lily Koppel at Monday’s Unity Club meeting, hosted by Ellie Walburn.

While most of America’s focus was on the first seven astronauts picked for the Mercury program at the start of the Space Race, the astronauts’ wives became regarded as heroes, too. They were the ones who supported their husbands and cared for their families, Walburn noted.

Overnight, they became America’s royalty.
