“The story of Katharine Wright is told here through imagined letters and diary entries. She has married late in life and as a consequence has been shunned by her brother, Orville. As a devoted confidant and caregiver to both Orville and Wilbur Wright, this is an unexpected blow. The pain of physical and emotional separation comes through clearly. At the same time, we learn about her life, told with frankness, wonder, and humor. A story that will leave readers wanting to know more about this delightful woman.”

“Katharine Wright — beloved sister and fervent supporter of Wilbur and Orville Wright, suffragette, feminist, aspiring teacher — becomes Orville’s caretaker and support after the death of Wilbur. Orville becomes more and more reclusive, finally cutting Katharine out of his life. The letters to Orville and musings of a sister who endeavors to close the ever-widening gap between the siblings make this a lovely historical novel.”
