Book Synopsis



From the New York Times bestselling author of I Was Anastasia and The Frozen River, here is a suspenseful, heart-wrenching novel that brings the fateful voyage of the Hindenburg to life.

"At every page a guilty secret bobs up; at every page Lawhon keeps us guessing. Who will bring down the Hindenburg? And how?"
--New York Times Book Review

On the evening of May 3rd, 1937, ninety-seven people board the Hindenburg for its final, doomed flight. Among them are a frightened stewardess who is not what she seems; the steadfast navigator determined to win her heart; a naive cabin boy eager to earn a permanent position; an impetuous journalist who has been blacklisted in her native Germany; and an enigmatic American businessman with a score to settle.

Over the course of three champagne-soaked days, their lies, fears, agendas, and hopes for the future will be revealed--and one in their party will set a plot in motion that will have devastating consequences for them all.

Don't miss Ariel Lawhon's new book, The Frozen River!



Review Quotes




"An enthralling nail-biter." --People

"We are introduced to a carousel of suspicious characters . . . so as the zeppelin cruises serenely through the clouds, the earthbound reader ricochets from distrust to uncertainty to outright foreboding. At every page a guilty secret bobs up; at every page Lawhon keeps us guessing. Who will bring down the Hindenburg? And how?" --The New York Times Book Review

"Rich with historical detail and spiked with plenty of surprises." --Shelf Awareness


"Mystery, romance--it is all here, told in a mesmerizing tale." --Kate Alcott, New York Times bestselling author of The Dressmaker

"A magnificent, tour-de-force story, Flight of Dreams will break your heart and satisfy every conspiracy theorist who's wondered what really happened to the Hindenburg. Simply spectacular. . . .

--Charles Belfoure, author of The Paris Architect


"[A] wonderfully suspenseful, heart-wrenching account. . . . [Lawhon's] vision for the journey and the cause of the explosion is masterful." --The Free Lance-Star (Fredericksburg, VA)

"Historical fiction at its best." --Acadian Lifestyle Magazine

"Lawhon once again reimagines a front-page news event, filling in the entertaining backstory with passion, secrets, and nail-biting suspense." --Publishers Weekly
