Description

This moving and romantic coming-of-age story was written during the 1940s. As revealed in an introduction by the author's granddaughter Léna Roy, the protagonist Elizabeth is close to an autobiographical portrait of L'Engle herself as a young woman—"vibrant, vulnerable, and yearning for love and all that life has to offer."

      • bioText: Madeleine L'Engle (1918-2007) was the Newbery Medal-winning author of more than 60 books, including the much-loved A Wrinkle in Time. Born in 1918, L'Engle grew up in New York City, Switzerland, South Carolina and Massachusetts. Her father was a reporter and her mother had studied to be a pianist, and their house was always full of musicians and theater people. L'Engle graduated cum laude from Smith College, then returned to New York to work in the theater. While touring with a play, she wrote her first book, The Small Rain, originally published in 1945. She met her future husband, Hugh Franklin, when they both appeared in The Cherry Orchard. Upon becoming Mrs. Franklin, L'Engle gave up the stage in favor of the typewriter. In the years her three children were growing up, she wrote four more novels. Hugh Franklin temporarily retired from the theater, and the family moved to western Connecticut and for ten years ran a general store. Her book Meet the Austins, an American Library Association Notable Children's Book of 1960, was based on this experience. Her science fantasy classic A Wrinkle in Time was awarded the 1963 Newbery Medal. Two companion novels, A Wind in the Door and A Swiftly Tilting Planet (a Newbery Honor book), complete what has come to be known as The Time Trilogy, a series that continues to grow in popularity with a new generation of readers. Her 1980 book A Ring of Endless Light won the Newbery Honor. L'Engle passed away in 2007 in Litchfield, Connecticut.

      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Beloved for A WRINKLE IN TIME, Madeleine L' Engle did not receive much critical acclaim for her other work, including this semiautobiographical story of a young aspiring actress in New York. Maggi-Meg Reed brings it alive with just the right balance of pleasure and determination. Reed moves easily between a varied cast of characters, who are serving as apprentices in a theater production company. Her enunciation is suggestive of the 1940s setting of the narrative, and her choice of pacing has the effect of a play reading itself. Reed believably depicts both males and females and portrays a multitude of moods, including despair, hope, and, as the young protagonist falls in love, romance. M.R.

        May 26, 2008
        Written by the late L'Engle (A Wrinkle in Time
        ) in the 1940s and never before published, this romantic coming-of-age story will immediately draw in listeners. Twenty-year-old Liz Gerard has wanted to be an actress for as long as she can remember, and has finally been allowed to test her talents by apprenticing at a summer stock company. There Liz falls for the slightly older, charming director, Kurt. During a pivotal weekend, however, Liz learns that Kurt's intentions are not so honorable and she comes to appreciate Ben, who has been patiently waiting in the wings. Listening to Reed's narration of this dialogue-rich work is akin to attending a play. Her expert use of pauses, shifts in voices and quiet passion bring this story to life. Teens may need explanations of items like dirndl skirts and telephones with no dialing mechanisms, but the basic story of first love and deception transcends the period setting. The author's granddaughter Léna Roy supplies an introduction and an interview. Ages 12–up. Simultaneous release with the FSG hardcover (see Children's Reviews).
