Strong Women - Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Anne Morrow Lindbergh was known for being the wife of Charles A. Lindbergh Jr,
but she was also a writer, aviator, and mother of 6 children.
She often co-piloted next to her husband and was the first licensed woman glider pilot in the United States.
She had to be strong under sometimes extremely difficult times, especially when her first son, Charles A. III, was kidnapped and murdered in 1932.
Her book, Gift from the Sea, was given to me many years ago and has been read several times.
If you haven't read it, it is a must read.
It is a story of learning and relearning the painful lesson that "woman must come of age by herself-she must find her true center alone."
