Customer Review

on August 24, 2001
Madeleine L'Engle brings us yet another thought provoking book. She reunites us with characters from her beloved time trilogy. Meg and Calvin's oldest daughter, Polly, is on an educational trip to Greece and Cyprus. Once she is there, she starts to relive her recent troubling past. One year before she arrives in Greece, Polly meets Maxa, an intelligent and wise elderly woman. Polly idolizes Maxa, because Maxa helps Polly to overcome her troubles. One day, a drunken Maxa makes the mistake of hurting Polly, and she discovers the startling truth that Maxa is only human. Will Polly learn to forgive Maxa? The novel has many controversial issues in it, and should not be in the young adult section. But the book still shows the meaning of trust, love and honesty.
