To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Oh how i love the writing style of Madeleine L'Engle! This might be a short story but it packs so much into it! It flows nicely through it transporting you down the story line , the characters are well developed and it makes you feel like you know them. It had a twist in it that I was certainly was not expecting, you know it is a good short story when you wish it was a full length story because you love it that much! A solid 5 star read for me!
Creepy little story that does indeed remind me of Shirley Jackson. It is to short in my opinion but deliciously dark and in the short time it takes to read it, it packs a punch and really is eerie. Recommended for fans of short stories.
Short but oh so richly developed. It is amazing how effective suspension of disbelief can be in so few pages! I love how twisted it was; I will definitely be finding the rest of these L'Engle stories!!
I've been reading Madeleine L'Engle books since I was seven years old and this is the first new story I've seen in a long long time. I'm so glad her granddaughter has taken the time to go through her archives and find the work that was never published. This is a slightly disturbing but wonderful story that is so Madeleine L'Engle.
I have always enjoyed Madeliene L'engle's books. Also being able to read the backstories of how they came about. Was extremely interesting to read how they came about. Thank you for this opportunity . If you haVe read her books I do recommend reading this. It is a very quick read.
An improbable story that somehow L'Engle makes you believe. This short story reminds me of Shirley Jackson's tales. The ordinary suddenly becoming frighteningly real, stirs your imagination to wondering, could this be?
A quick read, about a favor asked by a elderly friend, take her to a church in the dark of night. A fast paced, mysterious foray into the realm of twists. An enjoyable little story to whet your appetite.
