This was selected by a friend for our book club and the back cover of the book initially turned me off. How exciting could a story be about an old woman and her relationships with the individuals who work for the local church? Surprisingly, very exciting. L'Engle is a really gifted writer and she weaves a story that provides more thrills and intrigue than you'd ever expect. I found myself loving this book. It has so many layers, such inticate characters and constant suprises around every page. Fabulous!
