The Aviator's Wife has been favorably compared with "Loving Frank", and "The Paris Wife". The Aviator's Wife is about the wife of Charles Lindbergh. Anne Morrow Lindbergh was a quiet college girl when she met Charles. Although her relationship and marriage to this American Hero led her to her own great accomplishments, she was seen by the public, and the press as only his wife. The kidnapping and murder of their first child was a heartbreak neither she or Charles ever recovered from, their differing ways of dealing with this tragedy made her stronger, and I believe him weaker. Benjamin has given us a well written story of a woman, married to a famous man, who became an accomplished person in her own right. Anne Morrow Lindbergh was a woman who overcame the time she was born into, which viewed women as less important than men.

I liked this book very much. Bittersweet story and seemed pretty close to the historical record of Charles and Anne Morrow Lindberg.
