Anne Morrow Lindbergh : her life by Susan Hertog( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 1,628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this first full-length study of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Susan Hertog pierces the public image of Anne and Charles to reveal their story from inside the marriage, and gives us a true understanding of the author of the bestselling classic The Gift from the Sea." "Anne Morrow, the daughter of the American ambassador to Mexico, came of age in the rarefied society of international business and politics. In 1929, at the age of twenty-three, she married the already famous aviator Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh. Charles was the mirror to Anne's own ambition and her way out of a conventional straitlaced home. As hungry for life and adventurous as he, she harnessed his fame and his courage to become a groundbreaking aviator and writer. The tragic kidnapping and murder of their infant son became the price Anne paid for her marriage to a hero, and the catalyst for her passionate commitment to her family and to her work." "Illuminated by nearly five years of interviews with Anne Morrow Lindbergh, this book offers valuable insights into her thoughts on her life and writing. And it is the work that may finally unravel the mystery of Charles Lindbergh's entanglements in the German Reich, which threatened to destroy Charles and Anne's faltering marriage."--Jacket
Dangerous ambition : Dorothy Thompson and Rebecca West : new women in search of love and power by Susan Hertog( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in the 1890s on opposite sides of the Atlantic, friends for over forty years, Dorothy Thompson and Rebecca West lived parallel lives that placed them at the center of the social and historical upheavals of the twentieth century. Here, biographer Susan Hertog chronicles the separate but intertwined journeys of these two writers, who achieved unprecedented fame and influence at tremendous personal cost. American Dorothy Thompson was the first female head of a European news bureau, a columnist and commentator with a tremendous following. Englishwoman Rebecca West blazed a trail for herself as a journalist, literary critic, novelist, and historian. In a prefeminist era when speaking truth to power could get anyone--of either gender--ostracized, blacklisted, or worse, these two smart, self-made women were among the first to warn of the dangers posed by fascism, communism, and appeasement. But, torn between convention and the opportunities of the new postwar world, they were drawn to men who were as ambitious and hungry for love as themselves.--From publisher description
