Today is week eight of Lisa Ricard Claro's inspirational meme, Book Blurb Friday. The object of this meme is to take the cover image Lisa provides and write the back cover blurb you feel belongs to the book, in 150 words or less. Pop over to Lisa's blog to find out more and to visit the other entries.
Here is this week's image and my back cover blurb:
'I entered the space programme wearing rose-tinted glasses, believing astronauts to be infallible. I was wrong.' Ellie Garratt, 2019.
From the moment Garratt entered the European 2011 Space Explorer Program there was only one destination she had in mind - Mars. Read her incredible journey from RAF Fighter Pilot to astronaut in training, and her eventual acceptance on to the doomed 2018 Mars One Mission.
In this startlingly frank book she lifts the veil of silence surrounding the tragic death of her fellow astronauts and explains how she alone survived the perilous journey back to Earth. With indisputable factual evidence she counters the many conspiracy theories that surrounded her safe return and pays tribute to the five men and women who paid the ultimate price in the name of space exploration.
