    I just took this book out of the library The author was one of those interviewed for the PBS Special on Amelia Earhart She stated that Amelia was responsible for the breakup of her grandparents Dorothy and George Putnam Interestingly Dorothy divorced George and remarried well before George and Amelia married So I'm interested in reading of what she has written about her grandparents and Amelia EarhartBy the way July 2 2007 was the 70th Anniversary of the disappearance of Amelia Earhart somewhere near the Howland Islands in the South Pacific Later this year the 100th Anniversary of Amelia Earhart's birth will occurHaving finished this book I can state that it would be of interest only to those who've already achieved some level of familiarity with Amelia and her husband George Putnam This book mainly focuses on the life of Dorothy Binney Putnam George's 1st wife

    I have to say that I didn't actually finish it We read it for our book club and I think we were all expecting it to have about Amelia Earhart While it is obvious that the author loved her grandmother and wanted to pay tribute to her memory with this book I personally could not connect with Dorothy In fact toward the middle of the book I got increasingly annoyed with her lamentations and her life as a sad unfulfilled little rich girl whose travels and social life seemed important than her family I don't think she didn't love her family or her sons but it just didn't seem she tried to invest in them as much as she should Anyway by the middle of the book I gave up on it; I wasn't even interested enough in the Amelia Earhart side of it to read through the parts of her disappearance Oh well

    Our Community Read this year is The Aviator’s Wife by Melanie Benjamin has me reading about the early women in aviation A dear older woman put this book in my hands It was a good story written by the granddaughter of Dorothy and George Putnam who had access to historical documents and Dorothy’s diaries and journals and the family stories I particularly like the descriptions of the houses built and lived in by these lovers of the great outdoors The fancy fonts for the Grandmothers journal entries made them almost unreadable

    The history of this book was great I learned who discovered Crayola crayons and learned alot of Amelia Earhart but learned alot about women back in those days and the things that have changed and some of the things that have not change as our insecurities and self doubtfor us women it has been around alooooong time but read the resilience in an overcomer
