This elegant and insightful biography of Madeleine L’Engle (1918–2007) was written by her granddaughters, Charlotte Jones Voiklis and Léna Roy. Using never-before-seen archival materials that include photographs, poems, letters and journal entries from when Madeleine was a child until just after the publication of her classic, A WRINKLE IN TIME, her granddaughters weave together an in-depth and unique view of the famous writer. It is a story of overcoming obstacles --- a lonely childhood, financial insecurity, and countless rejections of her writing --- and eventual triumph. BECOMING MADELEINE will speak not only to fans of the icon’s work, but also to anyone interested in writing.
