I first read this book as a young woman with several children My mother had suggested it I recently reread it and found it just as impactful as a retired woman of 65 years Lindbergh has such insight into being a woman and she seems so aware of the challenges of self and others in relationship I read her daughter Reese s book about Lindbergh s last years The circle of life so much to think about Dawn T Gneiting
This was a delightful little book using shells and the sea to talk about women, their lives, and their relationships I especially liked her emphasis on solitude and simplicity We certainly need that in our busy lives

In some ways meaningfully instructive about life today as when it was written Over 50 years in print A book to be periodically reread The author is one of the extraordinary women of the 20th Century with many other books to her credit.
This is a book you can pick up and read at any time It s short stories, antidotes and poems reading to ponder Written while spending time at her cottage on the coast sea shells, sand, ocean .
Amazing how one woman s words can ring true generation after generation When life gets too complicated, reading this helps me to simplify and peel away the layers and get back to the basics.
