I won this book on LibraryThing's Early Reviewers and LOVED it, but I definitely wouldn't want to have been married to Charles Lindbergh. He was too controlling...loved Anne Morrow his wife.

What did you think of the book?

My review can be found in my reviews on LibraryThing and on my blog. Link is below.

I also received an advance copy and can't wait to read it. I think it is as difficult now as it was back then to be married to celebrity. Thanks for the review!

I have to admit that I didn't like this one very much. The author made a real person seem like just another fictional character to me. There were too many assumptions about what she thought and it felt artificial.

One of my friends loved it and gave it five stars while another friend disliked it so much she didn't finish it. We all have different tastes, and that keeps things interesting.
