Marjorie Smith, author of 'Making Up Amelia'

In Making Up Amelia, Montana author Marjorie Smith has created three different characters, in three different decades, who find their fates entangled with the mysterious disappearance of the American flier, Amelia Earhart.

In 1983, an idealistic journalist makes a sentimental journey that turns into an alarming encounter with her past.

In 1967, a civilian employee of the U.S. Navy goes on a weekend visit to friends and discovers a passion for flying and for a certain island bush pilot.

In 1936, a South Dakota teenager accepts a stranger's invitation to see the world, then finds out it comes with a high price.

Their three intertwined stories come to a dramatic conclusion on Guam, the island that likes to say it is "Where America's Day Begins."

Find out more about Marjorie Smith, and listen to the program, on the radio or online.
