Michael Flamini at St. Martin’s Press took North American rights, at auction, to Heath Hardage Lee’s The League of Wives: A True Story of Survival and Rescue from the Vietnam Homefront. Lee, who was represented by Katherine Flynn at Kneerim & Williams, is a historian who has spent much of her career working for museums. This book, Flynn said, “follows four Vietnam-era women through their incredible transformation from conservative, rule-bound, stay-in-the-background military wives to covert spies, national lobbyists, and international human rights figures—all to save the lives of their POW husbands and those missing in action.”
