Reeve Lindbergh has written a beautiful and honest book about growing up the child of the two famous aviators and authors. She writes of her mother Anne, then writes of her father, then writes of them as her parents, and as a couple. I've always been amazed that after the tragic kidnapping of their first son, they were able to raise five children without high security, body guards, and in an armed fortress. These two fancinatting people raised an extrodinary family and has left the world a touching legacy. Charles and Anne should be very proud. Well written, I couldn't put it down!

Very well written memoir! I loved all the intimate details of their family life. Highly recommended and am going to check out her mom's books!

Beautifully written. Interesting that the reader (in my case raised among the "less privileged") can identify with the writer's memories and observations. I enjoyed the fact that the author, though very proud of her family, is not snobbishly so. I enjoyed this book very much!

Good story written by the youngest of the 5 living Lindbergh children about her family. Gives a lot of insight into the life of her very private parents, and what it was like growing up in the Lindbergh family.

I loved this book. It was an easy read and so poignantly written. I felt like the author really let us in for an intimate look at the Lindbergh Family life. I have always admired Charles Lindbergh and his wife, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, but this gave me reason to respect and admire them even more. They were a very private family and this compelling memoir shares many candid and fascinating moments.

Reeve Lindbergh, the youngest child of Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, is the author of many children's books, two novels, and the text of a book of photographs of Vermont, where she lives with her husband, writer Nathaniel Tripp, and their children.

This a wonderful book of Reeve Lindbergh's growing up years with her parents Anne and Charles Lindberg. Anne put her life aside to be a stay at home parent. The Lindbergh kids had fun growing up even though their first sibling Charles JR was kidnapped and murdered as a baby. The five subsequent kids did not know until they heard about it in school. They grew up in a wooded area of Connecticut by the beach.
