After Margaret Murray and her baby brother encounter a strange visitor in their kitchen one night during a storm, they are whisked away on an incredible journey to find their missing father. Along the way, they will help fight a growing evil that threatens the entire universe. Some planets have already given in. Earth is in the middle of the struggle, though no one may realize it.
It’s no wonder that this is a classic. A wonderful blend of sci-fi and fantasy with overt Christian themes. There’s no hiding the Christian message in this one. L’Engle’s descriptiveness is just enough to help you imagine her world, but not overdone to the point that it slows the story. The characters are excellent, and the story keeps you engaged. This one is no doubt intended for children, but I think anyone can enjoy it at any age.
