Book Review: An Acceptable Time by Madeleine L’Engle

Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars Age Recommended: 11 and up An Acceptable Time by Madeleine L’Engle was one of my favorites in the quintet.

I loved how the concept of kything from A Wind In The Door was also used in this book. Calvin’s family is portrayed exceptionally well in this book, and his mother is one of the main characters. The story is written so that Mrs.O’Keefe’s history … Continue reading Book Review: A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L’Engle
