Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The two biographers and narrators are L’Engle’s granddaughters. One presents the main narrative in gracious, unhurried prose delivered in level tones suited to a nature documentary voice-over; the other intersperses excerpts from L’Engle’s vivid journals with greater gusto…. The biography leads up to and includes the publication of “A Wrinkle in Time” in 1962. Here the story stops, and sensibly so; children love a triumph. Only scholars care to know what comes next.” New York Times (audio review)
