Gifts From The Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Paperback in Very Good Condition
Anne Morrow Lindbergh (1906 – 2001) was an American aviator and author, and also the wife of Charles Lindbergh. While on vacation in Florida the early 1950’s, she wrote this essay-style book; with great wisdom and insight. Lindbergh describes the shifting shapes of relationships and marriage, presenting a vision of life as it is lived in an enduring and evolving partnership. She also criticizes the trappings of modernity that threaten to overwhelm us: the time-saving gadgets that complicate rather than simplify, the multiple commitments that take us from our families. It was the top non-fiction seller for 1955.
