Madeleine L´Engle´s A Wrinkle in Time has captured the imagination of millions - from literary sensation to timeless classic and now a major motion picture starring Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Storm Reid, and Mindy Kaling. A Light so Lovely tells the story of the woman at the center of it all - her imagination, her faith, her pattern of defying categories, and what listeners today can learn from her legacy. Best-selling and beloved author Madeleine L´Engle, Newbery winner for A Wrinkle in Time, was known the world round for her imaginative spirit and stories. She was also known to spark controversy - too Christian for some, too unorthodox for others. Somewhere in the middle was a complex woman whose embrace of paradox has much to say to a new generation today. A Light so Lovely paints a vivid portrait of this enigmatic icon´s spiritual legacy, starting with her inner world and expanding into fresh reflections of her writing for listeners today. Listen in on intimate interviews with L´Engle´s literary contemporaries such as Philip Yancey and Luci Shaw, L´Engle´s granddaughter Charlotte Jones Voiklis, and influential fans such as Makoto Fujimura, Nikki Grimes, and Sarah Bessey, as they reveal new layers to the woman behind the stories we know and love. A vibrant, imaginative listen, this book pulls back the curtain to illuminate L´Engle´s creative journey, her persevering faith, and the inspiring, often unexpected ways these two forces converged. For anyone earnestly searching the space between sacred and secular, miracle and science, faith and art, come and find a kindred spirit and trusted guide in Madeleine - the Mrs. Whatsit to our Meg Murry - as she sparks our imagination anew. 1.
