PRAISE FOR MELANIE BENJAMIN

The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb

"By turns heartrending and thrilling, this bighearted novel recounts a fictionalized life of this most extraordinary of women in prose that is lush and details that are meticulously researched. I loved this book."--Sara Gruen

"[Benjamin] knows how to combine research and readability. And she's given Vinnie such dignity and courage . . . that her heroine commands attention from the first page."--"The Washington Post"

"A narrative voice that is feisty, intelligent, brave, adventurous, and resourceful."--"The Boston Globe"

Alice I Have Been

"This is magic! Childhood, sensuality, love, sorrow, and wonder, all bright and complex as the shifting patterns of a kaleidoscope."--Diana Gabaldon

"Excellent . . . Benjamin offers a finely wrought portrait of Alice that seamlessly blends fact with fiction. This is book club gold."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

"The novel doesn't just fill in the blanks of a literary life, but tells the story of someone who was more than a muse; Alice may have been immortalized as a girl but, as Benjamin imagines, she grew up to be a great woman."--"New York Post"

"Delivers another stellar historical novel based on the experiences of an extraordinary woman . . . fictional biography at its finest.""--Booklist "(starred review)

"Talented historical novelist Benjamin has a knack for picking intriguing, if somewhat obscure, women in history and making them utterly unforgettable. . . . In true Benjamin style, it's Anne who captures us all in this exquisite fictional take on an iconic marriage."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

"What happens when you marry the greatest superstar of his time? Beneath the boyish persona of the beautiful aviator Lindbergh is a driven man, impossible not to love and yet impossible to live with. In this compelling portrait of a marriage between the naive young Anne and her world famous husband, Anne will overcome tragedies and betrayals to evolve into a strong woman and writer; even then when she has gained so much, she cannot entirely put aside the man she loves. This soaring novel of a woman's journey through a difficult marriage to self-discovery is sure to be a book club favorite."--Stephanie Cowell, author of "Claude & Camille"

Reseña del editor:

In the spirit of Loving Frank and The Paris Wife, acclaimed novelist Melanie Benjamin pulls back the curtain on the marriage of one of America s most extraordinary couples: Charles Lindbergh and Anne Morrow Lindbergh.
The history [is] exhilarating. . . . The Aviator s Wife soars. USA Today
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
For much of her life, Anne Morrow, the shy daughter of the U.S. ambassador to Mexico, has stood in the shadows of those around her, including her millionaire father and vibrant older sister, who often steals the spotlight. Then Anne, a college senior with hidden literary aspirations, travels to Mexico City to spend Christmas with her family. There she meets Colonel Charles Lindbergh, fresh off his celebrated 1927 solo flight across the Atlantic. Enthralled by Charles s assurance and fame, Anne is certain the aviator has scarcely noticed her. But she is wrong.
Charles sees in Anne a kindred spirit, a fellow adventurer, and her world will be changed forever. The two marry in a headline-making wedding. Hounded by adoring crowds and hunted by an insatiable press, Charles shields himself and his new bride from prying eyes, leaving Anne to feel her life falling back into the shadows. In the years that follow, despite her own major achievements she becomes the first licensed female glider pilot in the United States Anne is viewed merely as the aviator s wife. The fairy-tale life she once longed for will bring heartbreak and hardships, ultimately pushing her to reconcile her need for love and her desire for independence, and to embrace, at last, life s infinite possibilities for change and happiness.
Drawing on the rich history of the twentieth century from the late twenties to the mid-sixties and featuring cameos from such notable characters as Joseph Kennedy and Amelia Earhart, The Aviator s Wife is a vividly imagined novel of a complicated marriage revealing both its dizzying highs and its devastating lows. With stunning power and grace, Melanie Benjamin provides new insight into what made this remarkable relationship endure.
