    Her book "A Wrinkle in Time" influenced generations of Christians in a post-modern world and affected me deeply when I was searching for something--anything--remotely Christian in fiction to follow the Chronicles of Narnia.

    May she RIP.

    Madeleine L'Engle's A Ring of Endless Light moved me beyond words even though I was in my mid to late 20's when I read it for the first time. I encourgaged the teenagers that I was teaching at the time to read anything that she wrote and some did. A few wound up reading several of her books.

    In my opinion, she was a literary genuis.

    When the made-for-tv version came out a couple of years ago, I was so angry. They heavily altered the story lines and added "fluff" and generally made a very poor adaptation of the book. It made me sick.

    I am very saddened at Ms. L'Engle's death. I think I'll read A Ring of Endless Light again this weekend.
