I was attracted to this book because Madeleine L’Engle has been one of my favorite authors since I was 11.

This book was about the life of Madeleine L’Engle until the publication of A Wrinkle in Time. Her granddaughters gather the story from their many talks with Madeleine, her journals, and letters. 

Things I liked about this book. It was interesting to learn of backstory and how the elements of her life influenced her writing. 


Why you should read this book. To learn more about Madeleine’s personal life and her struggles and successes as a writer. 


This book lived up to the back cover copy. The back copy contains a wonderful quote from Madeleine  - “A self is always becoming.”
