Overview

The forty-five-year marriage of Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh was one of the great love stories of the century - outlasting the traumatic kidnapping and murder of their infant child and the storm of criticism sparked by their brief involvement with the America First movement on the eve of U.S. entry into World War II. In Loss of Eden Joyce Milton gives us the first dual biography of this fascinating, often enigmatic couple. Drawing on newly available documentary evidence as well as on her own investigative research, Milton offers us the most intimate portrait ever of Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh. Beginning with Charles's Midwestern childhood in Minnesota, and with the story of Anne's very different childhood experience as the daughter of a wealthy Eastern banking family, Loss of Eden traces Lindy's career as an aviator and Anne's as a writer. Who would have dreamed that the charming but feckless barnstormer would be the first pilot to make a transatlantic flight from New York to Paris in 1927 and become the hero of an adoring American public, a national icon? Anne learned to fly, too, and the Lindberghs' flights as a team were an important and dramatic chapter in their marriage. Unlike previous biographies, Loss of Eden makes the 1932 kidnapping of the couple's infant son the central moment in its narrative, the event that determined the future course of the Lindberghs' lives. Joyce Milton provides startling new information about the kidnapper, Bruno Hauptmann, and about Charles's own role in the case. Loss of Eden also illuminates for the first time Charles Lindbergh's belief in the utopian dream of air-mindedness - his faith that aviation would solve the world's problems, and encourage peace, brotherhood, and international cooperation - and his crushing disappointment when it dawned on him in 1936, during a fateful trip to Nazi Germany, that the airplane was also a weapon that would make warfare more horrifying than ever before. Joyce Milton is the f

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Milton lavishes all the sympathy and apologetics upon the Lindberghs that she previously denied the Rosenbergs in The Rosenberg File coauthored with Ronald Radosh. Includes 16 pages of photographs. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
Author - David C. Lee
“Engrossing…It is nearly impossible to imagine that any [other book about the Linberghs] could match the horsepower, top speed or rate of climb displayed in [Loss of Eden].”
Author - Daniel Harris
“Riveting…Milton’s skillful new biography…succeeds in clearing up just about every conundrum in the life of this celebrated pioneer and his fabulously wealthy wife and co-pilot.”
Author - Peter Kurth
“Admirably researched…[Milton] tells the story well, and movingly, and she obviously has uncovered a great deal of new material. She writes with vigor, and keeps the psychologizing to a minimum.”
Author - Ellen Chesler
“Compelling…[Milton] is best as describing the haven Linbergh tried to create for himself in the one enduring relationship of his life, his marriage to Anne Morrow.”
Author - Linda Barrett Osborne
“[Milton’s] narrative is absolutely riveting as she details the heartbreaking search, the press and public’s emotional, intrusive reaction, and the arrest and trial of the alleged kidnapper.”

    Fascinating story

    The story itself was fascinating but the text was riddled with misspellings. The many errors detracted from the book. The story is well researched.
