What more could you ask for than a book created by these two wonderful women--and friends. This is the beautiful story of a friendship that has flourished through miles and years--death and trials--beauty and joy. It is an inspiration and a tribute to friendship.
This is the kind of book you buy 2 of--one for you and one for your best friend!
This long-term friendship of two authors is rich in insight. Sep 22, 1997
L'Engle and Shaw, friends for 25 years, are educators at heart. Here they teach about friendship by sharing their own balanced and loving bond. Through an assortment of poetry, conversations, journal entries and other narrative, they celebrate a connection that grew in spite of living many miles apart.
As they look back over visits, vacations and joint writing projects, one sees that they enjoy each other's company enormously. Along the way they reflect on many facets of friendship; with girlhood chums, male friends, spouse, and family. They also show us their friendship with God and we observe that communion as they share and pray together and enrich each other's faith.
These two friends, one in her 70's, one ten years younger, were there for each other as both lost their husbands to cancer within the span of twelve months some years ago. Luci Shaw has since remarried, but their bond of friendship continues to this day.
Readers who follow their work will enjoy finding familiar poems in this new setting. And will be happy to know that L'Engle and Shaw have collaborated again. Their new book is a collection of short Christmas readings. It is _Winter Song_, a lovely blend of their own prose and poetry
