In Anne Morrow Lindburg's book A Gift From The Sea, she describes her insights into the complexity of womanhood and life as she discovered them in a brief vacation by the sea.
She helps us see ways to reconcile our most deeply personal needs with obligations to family, friends, lovers, and work, ways to separate loneliness from replenishing solitude, and ways to find solace in the simplest of daily tasks.
It is a book that has brought me peace many times when I have felt afflicted by the many needs and expectations that life brings. I have found simple answers to the complexity of being so much all at once and have taken hope from her insights into life's true meaning.
I LOVE this book. It was the perfect gift to give a group of my great women friends who do so much to inspire me with their valiant efforts as mothers and women.
