Author Info
Madeleine L'Engle
Best known for her classic children's book, A WRINKLE IN TIME, winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal, Madeleine L'Engle also wrote dozens of books for adults. Her writing was deeply influenced by her childhood, during which she suffered through a series of bad school experiences. L'Engle attended Smith College and married Hugh Franklin, an actor, with whom she had three children. Many of her books are a combination of science fiction, fantasy, and spirituality. Interestingly, although her books often contain a strong Christian element, they have sometimes been challenged for what some believe to be an "anti-Christian message." In 1997 she was honored with the World Fantasy Award for lifetime achievement, and in 2004 was a recipient of the National Humanities Medal. She died at the age of 88.
Praise
"Readers will come away with a feeling for what is good about humanity. An eminently caring book by an obviously caring writer."
From the Publisher
Annotation Polly O'Keefe, from previous L'Engle novels, is now 17 and goes to stay with her patron Max who is dying. There, she discovers that Max is a lesbian, and when she tries to seduce her, Polly feels betrayed and cannot forgive her. Later, while on a trip to Greece, Polly falls in love with a young man, and through this love, learns how to forgive. Other novels about Polly O'Keefe are "Dragons in the Waters" and "An Acceptable Time".
Editors Note Sixteen-year-old Polly is on her way to a conference on the island of Cyprus, where she will work as a gofer. The trip was arranged by Maximiliana Horne, a rich, brilliant artist who, with her longtime companion, Dr. Ursula Heschel, recently became the O’Keefe family’s neighbor on Benne Seed Island. Max and Polly formed an instant friendship and Max took over Polly’s education, giving her the encouragement and confidence that her isolated upbringing had not. Polly adored Max, even idolized her, until Max betrayed her.|In Greece, Polly finds romance, danger, and unique friendships. But can she ever forgive Max?
