Wrinkle In Time was my favorite book as a child. Now that I'm older, I'm re-reading it and was unaware that it was a trilogy. I understand that some of L'Engle's books are linked in a way to the O'Keefe's & Murray's. Has anyone thought of putting out a Family Tree of sorts? I'd love a visual of who belongs to whom and what books they are featured in. :)
Hi Jenn -- That family tree is available in most editions of those books! Take a look in the back. We'll also look into posting that visual guide on the website. Thanks for the suggestion!
The Sphinx at Dawn is available as an ebook (print coming soon!)
Madeleine rarely wrote with a particular audience in mind, she simply followed the story, so it makes very good sense that readers of all ages would enjoy her books. Tesser well!
Hi Libby --
After years at schools where she was thought to be not quite bright and had a hard time making friends, Madeleine loved Ashley Hall. She was encouraged and supported by her teachers, found friends, and her writing blossomed. She wrote poetry and plays and fiction, and acted in school plays and edited the literary journal as well. An upcoming biography has a couple of chapters on her time at Ashley Hall. Check it out here: https://goo.gl/y2cBHh
hi my name is john conklin, when i was 6 years old in 1962 my kindergarden used to read from your book to uus ech day , i don,t know why i always remembered the title of your book when i was at such an early age' my daughter who is now 6 was with me in an target department stor an few months ago when she was your book, and recognized the title because i had told her about it and promised ii would read it to her if i ever was an copy of it again, it was like reliving it all over again at age 6,, although it has been over 50 years sent,s i heard the story i thought that the end of story was abrupt and diffrent than in the orginal boon published in 1962 book, i do not remember tesserating away from the it of gaint brain with out destroying it , it seemes that the story was shortned or changed ? i enjoyed the book very much, please respond, sincerely john
Hi John, Thanks so much for writing. Madeleine died in 2007, but she would have been moved by your story of sharing A Wrinkle in Time with your daughter. To answer your question, A Wrinkle in Time has not been shortened or changed since it was first published in 1962.
Hi Ma'am my name is Jhara and I am a great fan of yours! I've never read all your books because I still lack money to buy but among the books I read my most favorite book was "Troubling a Star." I don't know if it's the last of the series, so I'm just here to ask that if it is the last book of the series? Oh yeah, I'm really loving the way Vicky's mind works and her infatuation towards Adam Eddington, will Adam III reciprocate Vicky's feelings towards him? It's fine if you won't tell me if they'll be together. I guess if you don't tell me, it means that the readers must be the ones who will be thinking of their happy ending. Anyways, thanks again! I hope you get to answer my questions :) God bless!
Thanks so much for writing and how wonderful that you're such a Vicky person! Madeleine died in 2007, so can't answer your questions about what happens with Vicky and Adam. Troubling a Star is indeed the last in the series, and she never let on what happens. Seems like a ripe topic for fan fiction!
That certainly sounds like her, but we don't know where that might be found. If you discover anything, please let us know!
Wonderful! Tesser well!
