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 enjoyed this story about the lives of the Lindberghs. It brought them down to earth and made them human. I better understand the nature of a hero like him and the wife that stands "behind" him, so that he can accomplish great things. I enjoyed it so much, I listened to it twice!
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.
Do you offer refunds?
This book captivated me from the moment I started listening. As the daughter and wife of aviators, I identified with many of the aeronautical escapades as well as the personality traits many pilots share. Loved it!!
I could only stand so much of listening to the whiny, poor me narration. In this story, it is all about her and how pitiful she thinks she is, but you sense an underlying ego. I don't like the older woman narration either. I got this book because of a book club read but Would not recommend this.
