Gift From the Sea
Gift From the Sea By Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Usually when we read books written long ago we can relish in how different life was "back then" or how much times have changed. It is amazing how this collection of essays by Anne Morrow Lindbergh, a poetic, magical writer, has captured the timeless essence of women. For mothers, sisters, friends, everyday life which includes your hopes and dreams, past, present and future. She says so much in so few pages leaving the reader craving more of her words. Fifty years after its publication, nothing has changed because what mankind ("womankind") holds deep in the heart is true for all people in all places and at all times. A book to read over and over, I highly recommend this uplifting work of art that is truly the authors never ending gift to us.
