Anniversary of Lindbergh’s Flight

Leave a comment

With May 20th honoring the anniversary of Charles Lindbergh’s first solo transatlantic flight, let’s turn to an equally fascinating figure: his wife, Anne Morrow Lindbergh. In her novel The Aviator’s Wife, Melanie Benjamin looks at the real woman behind the fairytale romance. Anne, the daughter of ambassador Dwight Morrow, was a gifted writer. She suffered with Charles through the kidnapping and death of their young son. She suffered alone as he betrayed her (it turned out he had whole other families with other women). Read the novel, read biographies about her, and read her own words in Gift from the Sea.
