“The Aviator’s Wife” – In this piece of historical fiction, Melanie Benjamin explores the marriage of one of the most famous couples of the early 20th century–that of Charles Lindbergh and Anne Morrow. She shines a light on Anne, who spent much her life in the shadow of her husband, though she was an accomplished aviator in her own right, as well as a poet and author.
