Book: Gift from the Sea
Author: Anne Morrow Lindbergh
A BOOK that transcends time, Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh is a timeless classic that should be a staple on your book shelf.
It may have been written in the 50s but it is every bit as relevant now as it was then, if not more so.
Gift from the Sea will likely resonate with women of all ages from all walks of like at different stages of their lives, who will appreciate the author’s creative gift of showing us a way back to ourselves.
I am reviewing Gift from the Sea this month because I think it is an important book that deserves increased popularity and should be talked about more.
I promise you will turn the last page and feel like the author knows you.
Such timeless wisdom can be found in this little book, it’s a powerfully good read that elevates women and it will speak differently to you every time you pick it up, depending on what’s happening in your own life in that moment.
This well-crafted book encompasses themes of solitude, relationship and inner peace intertwined with beautiful metaphors.
The author offers excellent insights into the different phases of life that we all go through and emphasises that our need for solace and reflection makes us better human beings.
Her thoughtful observations are written beautifully with a gentle tone, and offer self-reflection observed in a peaceful, serene location.
The chapters centre on Lindbergh’s musings during a short holiday alone, without her husband and children, where she stayed in a simple beach cabin without any of the usual home comforts like plumbing, hot water and a telephone.
I highly recommend Gift from the Sea - buy it, read it and save it on your bookshelf to revisit in a few years for a new perspective.
You can purchase a copy of Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh from all major e-book retailers for around $13.
