Overnight, these women were transformed from military spouses into American royalty. They had tea with Jackie Kennedy and became fashion icons.They formed the Astronaut Wives Club, meeting to provide support and friendship. Many became neighbors and helped to raise each other's children by day, while going to parties at night as the country raced to land a man on the Moon.As their celebrity rose-and as divorce and tragedy touched their lives-they rallied together, and the wives have now been friends for more than fifty years.This is the story of the women who stood beside America's space-age heroes.
