This is a wonderful memoir written by a young woman who would have a place in at least one of the biggest news stories of the early part of the century. Her first born child is kidnapped and murdered...her husband the infamous Charles Lindbergh who after being catapulted into near-godlike status, falls after he sympathizes with the Nazis. And, of course, falls again after new revelations in 2003 (no spoilers here;-)).

Anne Morrow was a beautiful writer, Gift From the Sea, a later book, is one of my all-time favorites and was another huge bestseller. Still a lovely, prescient read for wives and mothers.

I also highly recommend her daughters' books: Reeve Lindbergh. She wrote a lovely memoir of her mother as she became disabled with dementia. Reeve also lost her first born child to SIDS.
