My reading choices so far this year have been rather heavy and studious, but today’s book is a simply lovely little romance. Madeleine L’Engle is one of my absolutely favorite authors, and during our latest visit to the library I found a book trumpeted as “a new novel by the author of A Wrinkle in Time“. Madeleine L’Engle died in 2007 aged 87 years, but in 2008 her granddaughters published a manuscript first written in the 1940s and shared with them when they were preteens. This very autobiographical young adult novel about falling in love (both with the theater itself and with a fellow actor) is a delightful read, and will leave you wanting more.

Madeleine L’Engle is magnificent!
