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.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Nancy L. | 3/29/2013

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Mary Ann | 7/21/2011

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Carol | 10/3/2010

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jenny | 9/23/2010

    " 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. "
