Madeleine L'Engle (1918-2007) was the Newbery Medal-winning author of more than 60 books, including the much-loved A Wrinkle in Time. Born in 1918, L'Engle grew up in New York City, Switzerland, South Carolina and Massachusetts. Her father was a reporter and her mother had studied to be a pianist, and their house was always full of musicians and theater people. L'Engle graduated cum laude from Smith College, then returned to New York to work in the theater. While touring with a play, she wrote her first book, The Small Rain, originally published in 1945. She met her future husband, Hugh Franklin, when they both appeared in The Cherry Orchard.

Upon becoming Mrs. Franklin, L'Engle gave up the stage in favor of the typewriter. In the years her three children were growing up, she wrote four more novels. Hugh Franklin temporarily retired from the theater, and the family moved to western Connecticut and for ten years ran a general store. Her book Meet the Austins, an American Library Association Notable Children's Book of 1960, was based on this experience.

Her science fantasy classic A Wrinkle in Time was awarded the 1963 Newbery Medal. Two companion novels, A Wind in the Door and A Swiftly Tilting Planet (a Newbery Honor book), complete what has come to be known as The Time Trilogy, a series that continues to grow in popularity with a new generation of readers. Her 1980 book A Ring of Endless Light won the Newbery Honor. L'Engle passed away in 2007 in Litchfield, Connecticut.

Madeleine L'Engle lived in New York City, in the state of New York. Madeleine L'Engle was born in 1918 and died in 2007.

Reviews - What do customers think about WinterSong: Christmas Readings?

Early Winter, Christmas, Late Winter  Oct 20, 2009
WinterSong: Christmas Readings by Madeleine L'Engle and Luci Shaw, is a beautiful book in every way. I have both the hardcover copy, published in 1996 by Harold Shaw Publishers, as well as the paperback version, published in 2003 by Regent College Publishing (copyright by the authors). Good to have an extra copy of this timeless writing, compiled by Lil Copan, on hand for a gift.

WinterSong includes many different selections of writing in poetry and prose, by L'Engle and Shaw, from their long and distinguished careers. Scripture quotations from different translations of the Bible are also included and appreciated. As noted in the Acknowledgments, many pieces in WinterSong are previously unpublished. It is also lovely to reread familiar pieces in a new conversational and devotional setting.

There are seven chapters in the book, beginning with "Unraveling a Season/Early Winter," "Marvelous Mystery/Incarnation" at the center, and ending with "Newness of Heart/New Year and Late Winter." It is a book to read from cover-to-cover and/or to read and reflect upon selections here and there.

WinterSong is a classic. The books of Madeleine and Luci have been a part of my life for decades now. Surely, I am not alone in feeling comfortable referring to them by their first names. It is a privilege to recommend their work.
