Journal Entry 1 by wingmcsarwing from Richmond, British Columbia Canada on Wednesday, October 04, 2017
A nice quick read. The author took a sojourn on an island to find herself and reflect on life. The book is a collection of reflections on life, self and relationship. While the book was written in 1955 and some ideas about the woman's role may be dated, most of the ideas on self and relationship still hold. I think the part about finding time for oneself is particularly true when we are faced with so much distraction nowadays.

Thank you so much mcsar, for the book and all the lovely goodies that came with it. The author of the book lived to be 94, so must have some good insights and visions on life :)

A quick read with some interesting observations, although somewhat dated now.

Amazon Editorial Review
In this inimitable classic—graceful, lucid, and lyrical—Anne Morrow Lindbergh shares her meditations on youth and age, love and marriage, peace, solitude, and contentment during a brief vacation by the sea.

Drawing inspiration from the the shells on the shore, Lindbergh's musings on the shape of a woman's life will bring new understanding to readers, male and family, at any stage of life. A mother of five and professional writer, she casts an unsentimental eye at the trappings of modern life that threaten to overwhelm us -- the time-saving gadgets that complicate our lives, the overcommitments that take us from our families -- and by recording her own thoughts in a brief escape from her everyday demands, she guides her readers to find a space for contemplation and creativity in their own lives. With great wisdom and insight she describes the shifting shapes of relationships and marriage, presenting a vision of a life lived in enduring and evolving partnership. A groundbreaking work when it was first published, this book has retained its freshness as it has been rediscovered by generations of readers and is no less current today.

I read this very quickly and although there are some messages in the book which are quite helpful, I really struggled with the writing style.
