Summary
Anne Morrow, daughter of the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, meets Charles Lindbergh when she is a shy college student and, awestruck, is quickly swept off her feet and the two marry. Throughout their tumultuous marriage, however, Anne finds herself constantly in the shadow of her controlling husband, and although outwardly supportive, she struggles for independence, eventually finding freedom in her own aviation exploits and writing.
Critique
A fine work of historical fiction that is both a heartbreaking and inspirational story of one woman's courage. A captivating read. Recommend.
