Anne Morrow Lindbergh was often overshadowed by her famous husband, Charles. Melanie Benjamin's historical novel brings Anne to the forefront, illuminating both her independent accomplishments as an aviator and the heartbreak and triumph of her personal life.

Anne Morrow was the daughter of the US ambassador to Mexico, and as such she's gently raised and well-educated, but life takes a bit of a turn when she catches the eye of aviator Charles Lindbergh and her quiet, ordered life is gone forever. Crossing the Atlantic solo wasn't enough for Lindbergh, and he brings Anne along on other adventures in flight as his co-pilot and navigator. Lindbergh's fame and the paparazzi follow them everywhere, and it takes a terrible toll on their lives and their first born son. Readers will experience both the changes that occur with the Lindberghs and in the first half of the 20th century in the United States and Europe.
