A woman's reflections on life, its stages, and its states, comparing them with the natural treasures of life in the sea
Excerpts from the original bestseller on love, happiness, solitude, and contentment.
Quila MacFarlane is devastated by the death of her mother, especially now that it’s just her and her father on Devils Rock where her father is the lighthouse keeper. They can’t leave and almost no one ever comes to visit them. But the morning after a storm, something floats ashore that changes their lives forever: Two small mattresses strapped together, and inside, a baby! They name her Cecelia, which means “a gift from the sea,” and call her Celia. She makes them a family again–and helps heal the hurt left by Quila’s mother’s passing. Two years later, though, another stranger arrives, one who changes everything all over again: A woman named Margaret, come looking for the final resting place of her sister, whose ship had gone down in a storm two years before. Her sister’s baby had never been found, either, she explains, and now she has no family of her own. Could this be Celia’s aunt? Will Quila have to give up Celia so Margaret can have her own family back? This is a gripping tale full of love, loss, and healing.
In 1955, Anne Morrow Lindbergh published her timeless book of reflections, Gift from the Sea. This perennial favorite used the metaphor of seashells to explore the inner spiritual path, gently guiding readers to practice simplifying, quieting, shedding, and centering in a too-frantic world. Two generations later, in a far more fast-paced world, Anne M. Johnson asks women to discover the beauty and meaning of Lindbergh's timeless "shells" all over again. In Return to the Sea, she uses experiences from her own spiritual journey -- as a busy mother, career woman, and therapist -- to offer a renewed vision of ways to create intentional space in our lives for personal and spiritual growth. Shell illustrations, along with centering exercises, meditations, and journal-writing exercises, enhance each chapter's reflections on Lindbergh's original "shell" passages. Readers who loved Gift from the Sea the first time -- and women who have yet to be introduced -- welcome these reflections in a beautiful new gift edition.

Soon he will risk his life to win her trust—and their heaven-sent future together.
Everyone benefits from a day of frolic at the beach. Hearts lighten as endless waves thrill and distract from everyday life. Bodies glean therapeutic value from the water's mineral content. Souls are soothed by mood-altering gazes at the ocean's vastness. The benevolent sea unceasingly bestows blessings on humankind. Some gifts however go unrecognized. In the solitude of early morning sunrise, if you open your heart to the sea, you can hear her wisdom.
Hopefully some pleasure may be had from my stories, which I enjoyed writing. Each different, I feel, but nonetheless from my imagination. Where did they come from, and why? Like most things in life at times, they arrived and wanted to be told. Perhaps they question what is reality, as opposed to dream, and that can have us going along a long, long timeless road where there is no clear answer, if an answer at all. As stated at the outset, they are to be taken as enjoyable stories, nothing more than that.
