Flight of Dreams by Ariel Lawhon


25614670We’ve all seen the footage of the Hindenburg as it erupted into flames in May 1937.  In Flight of Dreams, we are taken on that final flight and introduced to the crew and passengers who were aboard the German flight.

The story is told from several POVs; the stewardess, the journalist, the American, the cabin boy, the navigator.  As the Nazi party approaches it’s pinnacle, the flight of the Hindenburg is a source of German pride, but there are rumors of sabotage and not everyone on board is who they seem to be.  Emotions are high and secrets abound!

While the cause of the explosion is still a mystery to this day, sabotage is among the many theories that exist.  Ariel Lawhon has done a superb job researching the Hindenburg disaster.  She’s taken us on an inside journey and created a lovely piece of historical fiction.  The characters are based on their real-life counterparts and they are each captivating and mysterious. Even though I had seen that fiery footage over and over, I had never heard much about the people on board.  The author has given us characters with real feelings and struggles.  It’s these outlines of the human heart that truly make us grieve those people on board.  It’s a story of love, hope, espionage and adventure that we know is doomed to end in tragedy, making it all the more touching and unforgettable.  Highly recommended!

I want to thank the publisher (Doubleday Books) for providing me with the ARC through Netgalley for an honest review.
