I am not naturally drawn to historical fiction, but I found myself absorbed by Flight of Dreams. It's about the ill-fated flight of the Hindenburg in 1937 as it crossed over the Atlantic headed to New Jersey.
The characters are based on actual passengers and crew. There is a murder plot along with unrequited love and secrets.
A fast, fast read. I finished it in two days, but I think I could have finished it in one except that we had dinner with some friends.
I also checked out some documentaries about the Hindenburg and the footage of the explosion is fascinating. Thanks to Boomer for spending several evenings watching Hindenburg documentaries with me!
