about this book

An illuminating portrait of Anne Morrow Lindbergh—loyal wife, devoted mother, pioneering aviator, and critically acclaimed author of the bestselling Gift from the Sea.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh has been one of the most admired women and most popular writers of our time. Her Gift from the Sea is a perennial favorite. But the woman behind the public person has remained largely unknown. Drawing on five years of exclusive interviews with Anne Morrow Lindbergh as well as countless diaries, letters, and other documents, Susan Hertog now gives us the woman whose triumphs, struggles and elegant perseverance riveted the public for much of the twentieth century.


“[This biography] is confident, graceful and shrewd. It finds the flesh-and-bones woman at the center.” —The Plain Dealer

“The author's deep research and ability to decipher the code beneath the veneer of Anne's books and diaries allow the reader insight into a woman who paid dearly for a remarkable adventure.” —Chicago Sun-Times

“Lots of books are called definitive biographies, but this actually is one. . . . As writing acts go, this one is heroic.” —David Gelernter, Commentary

“A detailed and comprehensive portrait of the writer, the aviatrix and the loyal yet in some ways disappointed wife. . . . Anne Lindbergh's story proves to be well worth telling.” —The Wall Street Journal

“A wonderful book, truly worthy of its subject.” —Peggy Noonan

“Poignant, haunting, and lyrical.” —Ron Chernow
