Praise for Susan Hertog's "Anne Morrow Lindbergh: Her Life" "Whether soaring into the sky or deep in mourning, Anne Morrow Lindbergh comes vividly to life in this poignant, haunting, and lyrical work."--Ron Chernow "[This biography] is confident, graceful and shrewd. It finds the flesh-and-bones woman at the center."--"The Plain Dealer" "Lots of books are called definitive biographies, but this actually is one. . . . As writing acts go, this one is heroic."--"Commentary"" ""The author's deep research and ability to decipher the code beneath the veneer of Anne's books and diaries allow the reader insight into a woman who paid dearly for a remarkable adventure.""--Chicago Sun-Times" "A detailed and comprehensive portrait of the writer, the aviatrix and the loyal yet in some ways disappointed wife . . . Anne Lindbergh's story proves to be well worth telling.""--The Wall Street Journal"
