Despite her many achievements following the wedding, including becoming the United State's first female glide pilot, Anne continues to live in the shadow of Charles. The fairy tale life she longed for would end up bringing heartbreak and many challenges to Anne's life which caused her to challenge her need for love and independence and to embrace the possibility of life's changes.
