Letters to Amelia by Lindsay Zier-Vogel
"Amelia is so much more than her relationship with Gene. So much more than her disappearance. Grace can picture her ducking under these red and rounded wings, the black block letters spelling out NR-79521. She can see her hands touching her face, nervous, and excited, the tomato soup from the Cochrane Hotel waiting for her in the cockpit."
LETTERS TO AMELIA
Grace Porter is reeling from grief after her partner of seven years unexpectedly leaves. Amidst her heartache, the thirty-year-old library tech is tasked with reading newly discovered letters that Amelia Earhart wrote to her lover, Gene Vidal. She becomes captivated by the famous pilot who disappeared in 1937. Letter by letter, she understands more about the aviation hero while piecing her own life back together.
When Grace discovers she is pregnant, her life becomes more intertwined with the mysterious pilot and Grace begins to write her own letters to Amelia. While navigating her third trimester, amidst new conspiracy theories about Amelia’s disappearance, the search for her remains, and the impending publication of her private letters, Grace goes on a pilgrimage of her own.
