When fifteen-year-old Charles Wallace Murry shouts out an ancient rune meant to ward off the dark in desperation, a radiant creature appears. It is Gaudior, unicorn and time traveler. Charles Wallace and Gaudior must travel into the past on the winds of time to try to find a Might-Have-Been-a moment in the past when the entire course of events leading to the present can be changed, and the future of Earth-this small, swiftly tilting planet-saved.

Publisher's Description

It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.

"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."

A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.

Author Bio

Madeleine L’Engle (1918-2007) was the Newbery Medal-winning author of more than 60 books, including the much-loved A Wrinkle in Time. Born in 1918, L’Engle grew up in New York City, Switzerland, South Carolina and Massachusetts.  Her father was a reporter and her mother had studied to be a pianist, and their house was always full of musicians and theater people. L’Engle graduated cum laude from Smith College, then returned to New York to work in the theater. While touring with a play, she wrote her first book, The Small Rain, originally published in 1945. She met her future husband, Hugh Franklin, when they both appeared in The Cherry Orchard.
 
Upon becoming Mrs. Franklin, L’Engle gave up the stage in favor of the typewriter. In the years her three children were growing up, she wrote four more novels. Hugh Franklin temporarily retired from the theater, and the family moved to western Connecticut and for ten years ran a general store. Her book Meet the Austins, an American Library Association Notable Children's Book of 1960, was based on this experience.
 
Her science fantasy classic A Wrinkle in Time was awarded the 1963 Newbery Medal. Two companion novels, A Wind in the Door and A Swiftly Tilting Planet (a Newbery Honor book), complete what has come to be known as The Time Trilogy, a series that continues to grow in popularity with a new generation of readers. Her 1980 book A Ring of Endless Light won the Newbery Honor. L’Engle passed away in 2007 in Litchfield, Connecticut.

Editorial Reviews

"Charles Wallace (A Wrinkle in Time), now 15, 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." --Starred, Booklist

    Person indwelling other beings; confusing

    After my teenage daughter stopped reading the first book because of scriptural problems, I as her mother decided to investigate this series to see why they were recommended. I found a lot of scriptural confusion and no strong scriptural basis to encourage kids' walk in the Lord.

    Book 3 deals with a main character indwelling different beings in time to "help them" make other decisions that would affect the history of today. Personally, I find this concerning. The Bible mentions that the Holy Spirit indwells us to help us and that demons can indwell people who don't believe in Jesus. If we are to be responsible before God for our decisions, how can this judgment be valid if some other human being living inside us is "helping us" choose what to do?

    This series has interesting concepts scientifically, but has much to confuse children about scriptural issues, in my opinion.

    Like all the magnificent Time Quintet books, A Swiftly Tilting Planet is jewel in the crown of imaginative literature. A closer look at a previously unsympathetic character is both fascinating and heartbreaking. The similar names (Zylle, Zillah, Zillie; Madoc, Maddock, Maddox) are a joy. Courage, love, humility, and the need for peace and selflessness are all major themes. Highly reccommended!
