Or all I can say right now.What say you?Jess Frobisher is a botany professor at the local university. Her husband, Liam, works for a space tourism company called Spaceco, which has just become front-page news: one of their shuttles exploded shortly after lift-off, killing everyone on board. The press descends. With the future of the company in doubt, two filmmakers approach Liam about making a documentary on the space tourism industry. Seeing this as an opportunity to save Spaceco, Liam agrees to cooperate, assembling a team for another trip into space. When he asks Jess to go, she must decide how far she's willing to go to save her faltering marriage and her life as she knows it.

From the first page, I was drawn in by this gripping and winning novel. The writing is fresh, vivid, and funny, beautifully capturing the mysteries of both the cosmos and our daily lives
A witty and original novel, rich in pithy insights, gloriously spot-on with regard to the yearning middle-aged heart stalwartly beating amid the complexities family life. Lost love and lost socks co-exist here, as our engaging botanist heroine digs her way to an unexpected epiphany
Alyson Foster's unusual novel God is an Astronaut updates the classic epistolary form for the Google age . This is an impressive novel, full of wry humour and, perhaps, a covert ecological message
An incredibly powerful modern love story
