From the list on amazing women whose stories were lost or hidden.
Who am I?
As a military wife, and daughter, sister, mother, and mother-in-law to military members, I gained a strong perspective of what it is like to be behind the scenes, keeping the family together and building my own career while supporting the important missions of the men around me. In my reading, I’m drawn to historical fiction, as I feel it makes the stories come alive for me. I love a good story, and what entertains and informs even better than the documented facts are the dialog, relationships, and emotions of the characters. So it seems only natural to write about the amazing women behind the curtain in history in the engaging and memorable form of novels.
Tracey's book list on amazing women whose stories were lost or hidden
Discover why each book is one of Tracey's favorite books.
Why did Tracey love this book?
Every schoolchild learns the story of Orville and Wilbur Wright and the famous first airplane flight at Kitty Hawk.
But how many know of the brilliant, irrepressible, and extroverted woman who supported them throughout and is a key reason for their success? The woman who travelled to France and met with presidents, kings, and queens to sell the idea of aviation, when the American people weren’t yet believers?
In keeping with my desire to learn the rest of the story, especially the women in the background who made the grand events possible, I am studying the story of Katharine Wright Haskell.
Both heartwarming and tragic at times, it is a story of the American dream at a time when it seemed anything was possible.
