This Petite is a companion piece to our popular Guided Journal, Gift from the Sea, offering more excerpts from the original Anne Morrow Lindbergh bestseller on love, happiness, solitude, and contentment. Like the Journal, the cover has an elegant translucent vellum overlay, highlighting the beautiful photo beneath. If you are not familiar with it - the Journal is a beloved classic—graceful, lucid and lyrical—Anne Morrow Lindbergh shares her meditations on youth and age; love and marriage; peace, solitude and contentment as she set them down during a brief vacation by the sea. Drawing inspiration from the shells on the shore, Lindbergh’s musings on the shape of a woman’s life bring new understanding to both men and women at any stage of life. A mother of five, an acclaimed writer and a pioneering aviator, Lindbergh casts an unsentimental eye on the trappings of modernity that threaten to overwhelm us: the time-saving gadgets that complicate rather than simplify, the multiple commitments that take us from our families. And by recording her thoughts during a brief escape from everyday demands, she helps readers find a space for contemplation and creativity within their own lives. 80-page hardcover book with a silver-plated charm on a ribbon bookmark; 3-1/4" wide x 4" high.
