I’ve started reading An Acceptable Time. I love the tone and conversation in Madeleine L’Engle books, the scientific talk, the normal intellectual conversations… the walks to the star-watching rock. I read some of her non-fiction work: A Circle of Quiet and all of the landscape described at the Murray home is from her home in Connecticut…. sweet – a very endearing moment for me as I learned that. Also Mr. Murray and Mrs. Murray have first names in this book Alex and Kate (and they fit!). I wasn’t sure until now that they hadn’t been mentioned before. There so must nostalgia involved here, I’m sure I will be unable to make people understand why that is a nice surprise for me.

I’ve written so much about her already in other posts. I had a “Swiftly Tilting Planet” since the 5th grade – I couldn’t get through it at that time. Many years later, I still have the very same book and I am reading it now hoping the cover wont completly come off. It’s a Yearling book with a teen Charles Wallace on the back of a Unicorn and its poetically written.

Would you believe that Madeleine L’Engle had a hard time getting A Wrinkle in Time published (a predecessor to A Swiftly Tilting Planet)? – I believe it sat around for over two years before finally getting picked up for publishing…

She provided so much for the imagination in her books, I couldn’t imagine what gems we would have missed out on had these wonderful stories not been published.
