About the Author

ANNE MORROW LINDBERGH was born in 1906. She married Charles Lindbergh in 1929 and became a noted aviator in her own right, eventually publishing several books on the subject and receiving several aviation awards. Gift from the Sea, published in 1955, earned her international acclaim. She was inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame, the National Women's Hall of Fame, and the Aviation Hall of Fame of New Jersey. War Within and Without, the penultimate installment of her published diaries, received the Christopher Award in 1980. Mrs. Lindbergh died in 2001 at the age of ninety-four.

Reviews

"Ultimately, Lindbergh made art from her life; this posthumous collection joins five earlier volumes that explore her experiences with the subtlety and drama of a good novel. It brings to a poignant close a six-volume odyssey that sensitively traces the arc of one woman's life, and with which Lindbergh did in fact create the great 'body of work' she feared she would never produce."
--Los Angeles Times

"Those already familiar with Lindbergh will get to know her more deeply, and those who don't will be introduced to an intelligent, sensitive woman trying to deal with enormous changes through four decades of a sometimes-ordinary and sometimes-extraordinary life."
--Columbus Dispatch "A rich and inviting book . . . full of introspective, beautifully crafted accounts of joys and conflicts; a recurring theme is Lindbergh's frustration at the confines of prescribed gender roles. An enticing publication."
--Library Journal (starred) "These letters, coupled with Lindbergh's diaries, provide searing insight into the inner life of her brilliant and sensitive mind. Equally fascinating are the tidbits she drops about her unconventional, yet essentially interdependent, relationship with "Lucky Lindy." A witness to and active participant in almost an entire century of progress, Lindbergh certainly had a lot to muse about."
--Booklist

"A perceptive, intimate, and spirited journey of a woman as artist, wife, and mother."
--Publishers Weekly
