The Wright Sister
By Patty Dann

 

 

When Katharine Wright, sister to the famous Wright Brothers, married for the first and only time at 52, her brother, Orville, refused to speak to her ever again. The Wright Sister is a historical novel made up of imagined letters from Katharine to Orville, as well as what she calls her Marriage Diary.

 

“The Wright Sister is a marvel—a perfect, very dear and brilliant novel whose characters are now stored in my heart like favorite, absent friends. Long live the remarkable Katharine Wright, her famous brothers, and author Patty Dann, who brought them back to life for this gobsmacked, grateful reader.”
 

— Elinor Lipman, author of Good Riddance and On Turpentine Lane

 

“From the first sentence to the last Patty Dann captures the voice of Katharine Wright with uncanny verisimilitude. Poignant.”
 

— Sheila Kohler, author of Once We Were Sisters and Open Secrets

 

“Dann does an amazing job of transporting readers in time by imagining Katharine’s joy, her devotion to Orville, and the pain she feels from their one-sided correspondence.”
