Gift from the sea paperback novel by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Feeling burned-out in her life in Connecticut, Lindbergh embarks on a two-week getaway to the seaside, which consists of one week alone and a second week during which she is joined by her sister. While she initially feels guilty for leaving her family behind, she soon becomes content in her solitude and enamored with the seashore itself. Lindbergh views the sea as a metaphor for life’s unpredictability and advises readers that if they are patient, the sea will offer them certain rewards. Additional metaphors are created out of the shells she finds along the beach. Lindbergh notes that choosing shells is similar to making choices in life, in that you can’t, nor should you, try to collect all of the shells—you have to select only a few and try to be satisfied with those
