Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for A Wrinkle in Time:

 

“A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books of all time. I’ve read it so often, I know it by heart. Meg Murry was my hero growing up. I wanted glasses and braces and my parents to stick me in an attic bedroom. And I so wanted to save Charles Wallace from IT.” —Meg Cabot

 

“A book that every young person should read, a book that provides a road map for seeking knowledge and compassion even at the worst of times, a book to make the world a better place.” —Cory Doctorow

Praise for A Wind in the Door:

 

“A suspenseful, life-and-death drama that is of believable cosmic significance. Complex and rich in mystical religious insights, this is breathtaking entertainment.” —School Library Journal, starred review

 

“Madeleine L’Engle mixes classical theology, contemporary family life, and futuristic science fiction to make a completely convincing tale that should put under its spell both readers familiar with the Murrys and those meeting them for the first time.” —The New York Times Book Review

Praise for A Swiftly Tilting Planet:

 

“An intricately woven fantasy ... Theme is L’Engle’s greatest forte, and once again she proves this with a compelling plot, rich in style that vibrates with provocative thoughts on universal love, individual caring, and the need for the joy in living.” —Booklist, starred review

Praise for Many Waters:

"This will be enjoyed for its suspense and humor as well as its other levels of meaning." —Kirkus Reviews

 

"L'Engle blends speculative fiction with biblical theology to create another provocative spellbinding tale." —Philadelphia Inquirer

Praise for An Acceptable Time:

"L'Engle has again achieved the award-winning style of A Wrinkle in Time ... Highly recommended." —VOYA

The New York Times Book Review on A Wind in the Door

Madeleine L'Engle mixes classical theology, contemporary family life, and futuristic science fiction to make a completely convincing tale that should put under its spell both readers familiar with the Murrys and those meeting them for the first time.
