Perhaps because they were born ten years apart, the author had/has a special, sweet adoration of her sister. Jill Bialosky mourns her baby sister with respect and honest inquisitiveness. The expected questions are all here: the whys and the what ifs. By the end of the book, I was much informed but still futilely hoping the young girl’s despair could be reversed. Suicide has a tinge of sensationalism but when related so carefully and personally, one is left caring deeply for those left behind.

In Anne Morrow Lindbergh's sixth and final collection of diaries and letters, taking us from 1947 to 1986, we mark her progress as she navigated a remarkable life and a remarkable century with enthusiasm and delight, humor and wit, sorrow and bewilderment. Above all, she was devoted to finding the essential truth in life's experiences through a hard-won spirituality and a passion for literature. Here is an eloquent and often startling collection of writings from one of the most admired women of our time.
