From Publishers Weekly

Anne Morrow Lindbergh, who will turn 92 in June, is well known for her marriage to Charles Lindbergh, the kidnapping and death of her first child and her wonderful writing. Her most popular book is the beloved Gift from the Sea, the 1955 classic in which she speaks to women about simplifying their busy lives and focusing on inner quiet and peace. Using Morrow Lindbergh's different "seashells," Johnson shares meditations from her own busy contemporary life as a wife, mother, therapist and writer, ending each chapter with a reflective exercise. For example, Johnson writes about the "Sea of Inner Stillness" as the location from which we draw our strength, acceptance and love. Moreover, she writes, "it is in the spiral dance to deep waters of quiet and back to the surface of activity that we experience the joy and rhythm of life. The time for reflection is never over." Johnson's simple reflections on Lindbergh's Gift from the Sea invite readers to step into the waters of Lindbergh's writing.

Reading this book is like having a wonderful, personal conversation with the author. It is also a wonderful companion to Anne Morrow Lindbergh's Gift From The Sea. I'm always amazed when I read and re-read Gift From the Sea that Mrs. Lindbergh and I (a 54 yr old housewife) could have so many feelings and thoughts in common. Anne Johnson shows us that we are all connected in our thoughts and feelings. Through wonderful, common, everyday experiences Anne Johnson shows us that we can Return to the Sea and feel present in the moment. I know millions of women have read, loved and taken Gift From the Sea to heart, and I'm sure many will do the same with Return to the Sea.

I first read this book in 1978. A friend of mine recomended it to me. I was going through a very difficult period. I remember when I opened the first page, I was sitting by a stream near the apartments where I lived, feeling very sad and as I started reading it, I could feel a spirit near me and it was comforting. When I finally finished this book, I decided that this book would be my Bible to life. I have given this book to several "very close" friends and have recommened it to others. I now need a copy for me since I gave my own copy away. This book will remain on my selves until I leave this earth.

Anne Johnson has given the reader a great gift. This book is an excellent companion for the journaling soul. Written with a warm, insightful and sensitive voice, not unlike Lindbergh's in Gift From the Sea.

Thought provoking revisit to a favorite of mine, Gift rom the Sea, but more than that. It puts Anne Morrow Lindbergh's wonderful thoughts on a down-to-earth basis. Anne Johnson is a fine writer and bravely shares the stages of her growth. Nell Abbott
