A Wrinkle in Time


Father is missing! His top secret job as a physicist for the government has taken him away—but where?—and how? Meg and her younger brother, Charles Wallace, set out with their friend Calvin on an exciting adventure through time and space to search for him. With the help of the mysterious Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which, the youngsters learn to expect the unexpected as they move in the fifth dimension known as the “tesseract”.

The Phoenix’s Perspective

This was one of my favorite books when I was younger and it has always lived in the back of my mind.  The characters consist not only of the fantastical “witches” but also a wonderful little boy whose mind works on such a high level and a misfit young girl who doesn’t know that by just being herself she is such a hero.

It was always a wonderful read because without knowing it at the time L’Engle was teaching me something about the balance of good and evil.  Not only that but she was also showing me something about how I can fight that evil even if it is there and, just by trying to fight it, I can make a difference and help those around me see the good in joining the fight.

Hopefully, the generations after me have continued to read A Wrinkle in Time, so that they also are learning these lessons even if they think they are just reading a book.

Would I add it to the library?

Of course I would!  I am even thinking of going back and reading the rest of the series because, when I read it originally, I didn’t know it was part of a quintet series.
