On December 21, 1988, in one of the worst acts of aviation terrorism, Pan American flight 103, headed to New York, exploded in mid-flight over Lockerbie, Scotland. The bomb killed all passengers and crew members on board, and another 11 innocent victims on the ground. The carnage and consequences impacted people around the globe. In the years that followed, residents of the town of Lockerbie and families of the victims sought peace, recovery, justice, and restoration. Although fictional, the characters in The Women of Lockerbie exemplify the very real journey through grief and hope of those directly impacted by the tragedy.
