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 ...
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.
