Synopses & Reviews
Fifty years ago, Madeleine LEngle introduced the world to A Wrinkle in Time and the wonderful and unforgettable characters Meg and Charles Wallace Murry, and their friend Calvin OKeefe. Now their first three adventures are together in one volume. In the Newbery Award winner A Wrinkle in Time, the children learn that Mr. Murry has been captured by the Dark Thing, and they must time travel to Camazotz to save him. In A Wind in the Door, Meg, Calvin and Mr. Jenkins (their grade school principal) must travel inside C.W. and battle to save Charless life—as well as the balance of the universe. And in A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Megs brother Charles Wallace has twenty-four hours to stop the tragedy of nuclear war from occurring. Read the iconic novels that continue to inspire millions of fans around the world.
Praise for A Wrinkle in Time:
“A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books of all time. Ive read it so often, I know it by heart. Meg Murry was my hero growing up. I wanted glasses and braces and my parents to stick me in an attic bedroom. And I so wanted to save Charles Wallace from IT.” —Meg Cabot
“A book that every young person should read, a book that provides a road map for seeking knowledge and compassion even at the worst of times, a book to make the world a better place.” —Cory Doctorow
Praise for A Wind in the Door:
* “A suspenseful, life-and-death drama that is of believable cosmic significance. Complex and rich in mystical religious insights, this is breathtaking entertainment.” —School Library Journal, starred review
“Madeleine LEngle mixes classical theology, contemporary family life, and futuristic science fiction to make a completely convincing tale that should put under its spell both readers familiar with the Murrys and those meeting them for the first time.” —The New York Times Book Review
Praise for A Swiftly Tilting Planet:
* “Charles Wallace, now fifteen, Meg, and the Murrys reappear in an intricately woven fantasy in which the boy time-spins through a tangle of history to find and mend the broken link that threatens to disturb the harmony of today. Theme is LEngles greatest forte, and once again she proves this with a compelling plot, rich in style that vibrates with provocative thoughts on universal love, individual caring, and the need for the joy in living.” —Booklist, starred review
Praise for T. A. Barron:
“The greatest wizard of them all continues to inspire.”
—Los Angeles Times, on The Merlin Effect
“Once in a great while a book comes along that is so powerful and so wise that you want to shout about it.”
—Madeleine LEngle, bestselling author of A Wrinkle in Time, on The Ancient One
“Bold, original . . . this book shines!”—Publishers Weekly, on Heartlight
Join Kate on an epic adventure...
Starring a heroic young woman named Kate Gordon, and featuring T. A. Barrons trademark mastery of language and setting, The Heartlight Saga collects three of Barrons beloved novels into a single volume. The stories follow Kate as she travels to a distant galaxy to save the life of her astronomer grandfather in Heartlight, goes back in time to a lost Native American tribe in The Ancient One, and ultimately down to the very bottom of the sea in The Merlin Effect. Weaving together mystery, mysticism, and magic, and exploring themes of mortality, interconnectedness, and the fragility of the environment, The Heartlight Saga is a testament to the power that each of us has within us to make a difference in our world.
