The audiobook I listened to is narrated by the author herself, and it's a great narration. This is an alternate history of the space race, kicking off with a meteorite strike that catastrophically alters the earth's climate. The story follows Elma, a pilot, and her drive to have women included in the astronaut corps. It's a steadily moving narrative that covers a fairly long period of time, and at times includes a reasonable amount of mathematical and technical detail (Elma works as a "computer", calculating rocket trajectories etc by hand on paper) - so it's not a constant thrill ride of a book, but a really engaging story.
