I re­ally en­joyed the book The As­tro­naut Wives Club. What will the show be like?

Los Angeles Times - - PARADE - —David L., Des Moines, Iowa

A: Like the best­seller by Lily Kop­pel, the se­ries— pre­mier­ing June 18 on ABC—will fol­low the lives of the wives of the orig­i­nal Mer­cury 7 as­tro­nauts. As their hus­bands are sent into space, they ex­pe­ri­ence both celebrity and tragedy. Yvonne Stra­hovski, 32, who

plays Scott Car­pen­ter’s wife, Rene, is in ad­mi­ra­tion of her real-life coun­ter­part.

“In the book, they de­scribed her as the rebel,” she says. “She def­i­nitely

stands out to me.”
