God Is an Astronaut (Alyson Foster)

Article by annalia

Botanist Dr. Jess Frobisher has finally started to build her dream greenhouse. It's spring in Michigan and her family is doing fine–until March 11, when her husband tells her there's been an accident. Earlier that evening, Liam's Tuscon-based space tourism company Spaceco launched a shuttle that exploded 12 seconds after liftoff.

 

Four days later, Jess sends an email to her colleague Arthur who is doing soil analysis in Canada. It's an impulse thing: she's alone in Michigan on kid duty while Liam tries to do damage control in Arizona. As the news crews descend upon the driveway and the phone becomes a drone, her daily emails to Arthur become a necessary outlet.

 

A suspenseful tale of family, friendship, and fear, God Is An Astronaut explores the relationships we cling to in crisis and the ones we keep out of habit. Jess's missives are candid, neurotic, and charming. A modern love story guaranteed to please.
