Anne Morrow Lindbergh's, "Gift from the Sea", was published in 1955, after spending a solitary visit on Captiva Island in Florida. I had never read this work and only picked it up after recently spending time in Captiva myself. The books message is a remarkably enduring one offering an extraordinary kind of freedom. The kind of freedom that comes when one chooses to remain open to life itself and whatever it may bring. The book makes it possible to quiet down and rest in the present. Anne Morrow Lindbergh's respect for the natural beauty surrounding her and her talent as a writer is truly a gift to all women, helping them to embrace the life they have.
If you are a lover of the sea, have ever stepped foot on Sanibel or Captiva Islands or reached for a seashell because it "spoke" to you......you will have to own a copy of "Gift from the Sea"! -Aurora
