"Quietly powerful and a great help. Glorious". (Emma Thompson). 'Women need solitude in order to find again the true essence of themselves.' First published in 1955 and an instant bestseller, Gift from the Sea is a classic, wise book for women about how to flourish in life, how to balance life, work, motherhood; about finding space to think and breathe. Holidaying by the sea, and taking inspiration from the shells she finds on the seashore, Anne Morrow Lindbergh meditates on youth and age, love and marriage, peace, solitude and contentment. Her insights - into aspects of the modern world that threaten to overwhelm us, the complications of technology, the ever multiplying commitments that take us from our families - are as relevant today as they ever were, perhaps even more so. By recording her thoughts during a brief escape from everyday demands, Anne Morrow Lindbergh helps readers find a space for contemplation and creativity within their own lives.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh - Gift From the Sea - This is a literary tool that you'll rediscover periodically, year after year. Read it once, and you'll be compelled to a second read. Not because you didn't get it but because it is so darned good! Bought six copies for Christmas gifts ...

Interesting outlook on life
I bought this book thinking it was a book about the history of different kinds of seashells and it did touch on it a little bit, however, how the author compared life experiences to different kinds of seashells turned out to be very interesting and thought provoking. I found the book to be interesting and have loaned it out to other people. They enjoyed it also. I would recommend this book and seller.

This book gives insightful into the process and importance of personal rumination, while unveiling elementary truths for one women, that may prove true for others. Although this book was written for a female audience, I believe it's still a great read, regardless of sex.

This is one of my all-time favorites. I give it to brides, babies, anyone needing a spiritual lift. I love the Sea and the Beach and have found this to be a perfect expression of that love and what it symbolizes.
