Do people know every book can't be a 5-star book or the ratings are meaningless? On any site! Same goes for Goodreads.
Yes. These are people and a time I did not know much about. Although most of it IS fiction, it does cover many historical points and eras; and I find it easy to absorb the information this way.
These books make me want to research the people and events that are the subjects. And I read Anne Morrow Lindbergh's Gift from the Sea in recent years, and it is a great piece of writing. And I thought not a bad book for married couples.
Great historical fiction read. It very definitely did cause me to want to know more about the Lindberghs, as the author suggests that a good read encourages.
This book started off rather slow at first - more feeling descriptions than actual plot, but then it takes off like the Lindberghs' plane, soaring to amazing twists and turns in this very realistic diary of a woman, very much infatuated with her hero husband, yet having very poor self-esteem and easily controlled by her larger than life husband. By the time the children are born, it is impossible to stop listening to the narrator, whose voice can mimic a young woman, men, children and an old woman very believably well. I would recommend this book mostly to women. It causes you to hunger for more investigation of the Lindbergh family, especially after learning many truths about this family never known before. I highly recommend this book! My husband didn't care for it at first, but was sucked into the plots without complaint later in the book! Amazing!
So sorry but the author did not do enough research on Anne Morrow. Poorly written. Almost juvenile. Not based on Anne Morrow ' s character at all. Read the diaries or "A gift from the Sea ". Truly so sad this book made it.
I absolutely loved everything about this book. It was brilliantly written. And, just like the book suspected of its readers. I researched to no end Anne, Charles and their life together. Thank you for this book!
I'm not sure it could have. This may need to be a book to read, not listen to.
Not until I read this or another book.
I was driving while listening and her voice was too neutral - nice voice, but not for driving and listening....
n/a I didn't make it more than 5 minutes in.
