Ariel Lawhon, Flight Of Dreams says
With everyone onboard harboring dark secrets and at least one person determined to make sure the Hindenburg doesn't make the return trip, Flight of Dreams gives an utterly suspenseful, heart-wrenching explanation for one of the most enduring mysteries of the 20th century.

On the evening of May 3, 1937, Emilie Imhof, the only female crewmember, boards the Hindenburg. Emilie has access to the entire airship and hears everything. But with rumors circulating about bomb threats, Emilie's focus is on maintaining a professional air …and keeping her own plans under wraps. What Emilie can't see is that everyone from the dynamic vaudeville acrobat to the high-ranking German officer seems to be hiding something.

Told through the alternating perspectives, Flight of Dreams gives free rein to theories of sabotage, charade, and mishap, taking readers on the thrilling three-day transatlantic flight. As the novel moves inexorably toward its tragic climax, the question of which of the passengers will survive infuses every scene with tension.

Ariel Lawhon is co-founder of the popular online book club She Reads, a novelist, blogger, and life-long reader. She’s the author of one previous novel, The Wife, the Maid and the Mistress She lives in the rolling hills outside Nashville, Tennessee, with her husband and four young sons and a black lab who is, thankfully, a girl.
