An Affirmation of Life
I have read L'Engle's A Ring of Endless Light nearly every year since I first discovered it, so I could trace many of the thoughts, scenes, details, and philosophies back to Summer of the Great-Grandmother. Her experiences as care-giver for her mother carried over into her fiction. I loved Summer of the Great-Grandmother for many of the same reasons I love A Ring of Endless Light: they both affirm the value of individuals, the importance of family, the necessity of exploring outlets for grief, the need for the knowledge that "it's alright" and "it's all right." L'Engle never settles for easy answers, but always finds hope, even in the midst of great pain.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
