The portion of the novel revolving around the disappearance of the Lindbergh’s two-year old son, was extremely sad and read like a mystery novel. Some of the actions taken by Charles Lindbergh in an effort to get his son back only backfired, and in a huge way. The tragic ending due to the poor police work was especially hard to grasp for me since we live with Amber alerts and law enforcement who move so much quicker to find abducted children. The book was a bit long, with just a little too much emphasis placed on how unhappy Anne was. Sadly, Charles was not a faithful husband and had several affairs and children out-of-wedlock. For a woman who accomplished so much professionally, in her personal life, Anne was very unfulfilled. Overall, this was not an uplifting read.
The story of Anne Lindbergh was filled with a wide range of events and emotion that made the story a good one, albeit slightly depressing. Read with caution!
