Gary Dikeos’ soaring voice and commanding presence fit well with the lofty subject matter in Loss of Eden: A Biography of Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh.
Joyce Milton’s biography provides a well-researched portrait of the Lindberghs, the first couple of aviation. Charles’ solo flight across the Atlantic helped him capture worldwide fame, while Anna became not only an aviator but a best-selling author. Between their air journeys, the couple dealt with the perils of fame, Charles’ fascination with fascism, and the kidnapping of their infant son.
In his captivating performance, Dikeos utilizes his raspy, baritone, which is reminiscent of a movie documentary narrator, and an engaged, enthusiastic tone.
For the first time, Joyce Milton gives us the dual biography of the wonder couple, Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh. Their love prevailed against a horrifying kidnapping and murder splashed throughout the media, their careers, and even the criticism they underwent following their involvement in the America First movement as the U.S. entered World War II. With new information presented about their son's kidnapper, Bruno Hauptmann, and Charlie's own role in the case, Milton gives her readers a lot to think about. Thoroughly researched, Milton exposes a new understanding and view into the personalities and lives of both Charles, Anne, and the time they lived in.
