Publisher Description

In this first full-length study of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Susan Hertog pierces the public image of Anne and Charles to reveal their story from inside the marriage and gives us a true understanding of the author of the bestselling classic The Gift from the Sea.

Susan Hertog plumbs the depths of Anne Lindbergh’s search for her own identity and vision as she struggles to remain faithful to her marriage and to motherhood. Anne Morrow Lindbergh is the story not only of a brilliant writer who probed the heart of womanhood, but also the anatomy of a marriage, the journey of a young bride who overcame the pressures of fame, personal tragedy, and social constraint to find answers that continue to illuminate the lives of women today.

    " I know there was a flap at the time this was published about how Hertog actually got AML to talk to her, but I find this book very compelling and her research far outstrips other AML biographies. Excellent. "

    " Felt like I learned more about Charles Lindbergh than I did Anne but maybe that's the point. "

    " Fascinating sketch of her life...although I was left still not knowing who Lindbergh really was - I thought some necessary details were left out. Overall a good read. "

    " I enjoyed this book. I was disappointed to learn some of the things contained in it about Anne Morrow Lindbergh, especially since I had previously read Gift from the Sea. Still, I think the author did a fair job and didn't tried to glamorize the Lindbergh family. "

    " It started off really strong and I wanted to give it 4 stars but it seemed to drag on a bit about the pre-WWII politics. But a good read and I found her to be a much more complex person than I'd before imagined. "Gift From the Sea" is still one of my favorite books. "

    " I feel so close to this woman after reading details of her unique life. She was human, but is one of my heroes. She seems to be a grandmother watching over her daughters of future generations. We owe her much for her pioneering efforts in many areas. "

    " Interesting story of a woman who always put her husband first, even when she may not have agreed with his politics. But she did have some great adventures! "
