Gift from the Sea - Anne Morrow Lindbergh I know that this book might seem dated, targeted as it is to stay-at-home moms. Women who work and don't have children already get the tangible evidence of accomplishments, the regular pats on the back and remuneration, the time alone or with a partner. But if you are a stay-at-home mom or a mom trying to work and be a good parent, this book is affirming, thoughtful, and full of good advice. I picked it up at the used-book store in Cannon Beach. I had always meant to read it, but never go 'round to it. And I'm glad, because as an older stay-at-home mom who gave up a career to homeschool a young child, it was perfect timing.
