Madeline L'Engle

Some books you read and forget about as you move on to the next one. Some stay with you whether you ever read them again or not. A Wrinkle in Time is one that has stayed with me. My mother probably gave it to me back when I was a youngster. I read it a few times as a kid and as a teenager. I also read the other two books in the trilogy, A Wind in the Door and A Swiftly Tilting Planet. I bought the last two when I was in college. Madeline L'Engle was doing a signing at a local bookstore. The three books still sit on my bookshelf across the room. Of course, I recommended them to my children.

Betsy's Page reports that Madeline L'Engle has died. Betsy also links to a fond remembrance by John Podhoretz.

I honestly did not know she was still alive. I have read many of her books and loved the trilogy. But I have read a Wrinkle in Time many times even as an adult!

I too recommend these books. As a Christian, many have told me not to read these books....I do not understand this.

I also enjoyed these books and read them aloud to my children. I did not know she had died.
