GIFT FROM THE SEA by Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Type: Paperback

Bookclub recommendation by Laura Cox

It's a beautifully written book which seems to literally seep fresh air into your lungs, creates space and gives a moment of calm. It helps one reconnect and take the time we so need but seldom allow ourselves. It was first published in 1955 but is timeless in the way it is written. The author intended it to be read by women to help them find balance and flourish in life.

I read it every so often, when I have become too busy and overwhelm threatens. It really helps to bring comfort and space. Like a supportive friend, telling you to sit down and breathe.
