Summary
From the author of the acclaimed and bestselling The gates of the Alamo, a novel of extraordinary power about what it's like, and what it means, to journey into space as one of today's astronauts. At the novel's center: Lucy Kincheloe, an astronaut married to an astronaut, the loving mother of two young children, with a fierce ambition to excel in the space program. Lucy has devoted years of intense and focused effort to win her place on a mission, but as her lifelong dream of flying in space comes true, her familiar world appears to be falling apart around her. And when at last she is in space, 240 miles above the earth, and an accident renders the world she left behind appallingly distant--perhaps unreachable--her spirit is tested in gripping and unexpected ways. In The gates of the Alamo, Stephen Harrigan's narrative authority brought a vanished nineteenth-century Texas to vibrant life. In Challenger Park, he does the same with the world of space flight, bringing us up close to the lives--the risks, the friendships, the rituals, the training--of the astronauts and the people who work with them. Harrigan has written an exciting--indeed a thrilling--novel about the contrary pulls of home and adventure, reality and dreams, and the unimaginable experience, the joys and terrors and revelations, of space flight itself
