Madeleine L'engle

"If I have something that is too difficult for adults to swallow, then I will write it in a book for children." – from Circle of Quiet

She died last Thursday at the age of 88. She has been very influential in Laura’s life thus influential in mine. We were discussing that she was one of the last of our list of great contemporary writers that was still living and had hopes of trying to meet her at some point. We shall just have to wait for heaven; maybe we’ll get Lewis, Tolkien, MacDonald, and her together and have a good discussion.
