So, I enjoyed this in large part because I am such a fan of Anne Morrow Lindbergh. The book itself read a little like a term paper, which style I don't find very readable, despite the best efforts of the author to liven it up by using verbs like "effused" and "scampered" (which, to my mind, are downright embarrassing). Also, I was disappointed to discover (by the time I'd read the whole thing) that it's not so much a biography as a summary of AML's own autobiographical writing. In other words, I ...more
I got this book from the library at my husband's request. So after reading and enjoying "The Aviator's Wife," thought I'd skim through this book. I'm glad I didn't read it as its a very disappointing summary of Anne Lindbergh's life. It is more about her husband than about her. Too bad this is the way many people see her.

Somewhat dry prose but thoroughly researched and narrated tale of a fascinating female explorer.

Really not worth the time.....If you're interested in Anne, read her own writings, which are numerous and lovely to read, not the dry prose of this book.
Read this while flying to CA this week. If you have an active imagination, don't read it on a plane. Amazing story of how the Lindberghs impacted aviation while living a Kennedy-like family experience. We thought the press was hard on Princess Di. I finished it thinking I found a new author--I plan on reading several of Anne's novels, including "Listen to the Wind".
Very interesting. I knew Lindbergh was an author, but wasn't aware that she was also an accomplished pilot and navigator. Remarkable woman.
