Challenger Park by Stephen Harrigan

At the center of Challenger Park is Lucy Kincheloe, an astronaut married to an astronaut and raising two kids. After his second mistake in space, her husband's career is in free fall, while she gets assigned to her first shuttle mission. Her training and future in space is complicated by her husband's bitterness and emotional distance, her asthmatic son, and her growing intimacy with her training instructor. Lucy must juggle it all, anticipating that 8-minute ride into space. Once she gets there, can she avoid the mistakes that would put her career, if not her life, in peril? Stephen Harrigan's novel has received mostly positive reviews with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch saying, "Challenger Park takes the well-trod landscape of suburban bedroom angst and gives it such a quirky makeover that the whole business of marital infidelity and family stability seems fresh. Challenger Park remains eminently readable."
