Why me?!?!?

Sad Day... Madeleine L'Engle dies at 88

Madeleine L'Engle is dead at 88

People who know me well, know that I do not read a lot of fiction. It's not that I don't enjoy the genre... or even that I don't enjoy reading. I just don't find a lot of books that either captivate me or keep me in a manner that affords me the time to break away to read.

"A Wrinkle in Time" is not only one of the few pieces of literature I treasure... it's one that I make a point to re-read every few years.

It was a stunning book that has allowed me to identify with not one.. but all of the characters everytime I've read it.

Ms. L'Engle will be sorely missed.
