About the Author
Madeleine L'Engle (1918–2007) was born in New York City and attended Smith College. She wrote more than 60 books, the most famous of which is A Wrinkle In Time (1962), winner of the Newbery Award in 1963. L'Engle continued the story of the Murry family from A Wrinkle In Time with seven other novels (five of which are available as A Wrinkle In Time Quintent from Square Fish). She also wrote the famous series featuring the Austin family, beginning with the novel Meet The Austins (1960). L'Engle revisited the Austins four more times over the next three decades, concluding with Troubling a Star in 1994. The story of the Austins had some autobiographical elements, mirroring Madeleine's life and the life of her family. Madeleine L'Engle's last book, The Joys of Love, is a romantic, coming-of-age story she wrote back in the 1940s, and is being published by FSG.

In my late twenties, I re-read this novel as a book club event and was amazed by all the women who also related and offered comments on how this book directly touched their lives. In significant fashion. Later into my thirties, another group still discussed this novel, espousing the wisdom found within these pages. We all agreed A Wrinkle in Time to be a "Must read" for all teen girls and even boys. It likely won't resonate with men like it does women, but it's one of the most relatable books for females I've ever read.
I strongly recommend this book to women of all ages, and like me, believe teens will pull this out in a decade to read again. And pass to their children and grandchildren. I still own a tattered print copy as it was my saving grace when turmoil took over my life.
There are more novels by Ms. L'Engle, but A Wrinkle in Time will forever remain my favorite - and it's the foremost book I will be suggesting to my granddaughters when they are coming into their teens. Please do not interpret this as an adolescent read, for it is not. This is simply one of the best coming of age novels ever written for women, and I hope you will take time to read it as it will forever change you and most likely become a "go-to referral" when things in your life get a bit overwhelming
So worth the money - no matter your age!!!
