SUMMER OF THE GREAT-GRANDMOTHER is book 2 of the three Crosswicks Journals, written in the 1970's by award-winning author Madeliene L'Engle (pronounced LING-el). While covering the events of her life, her family, and her career, this book focuses particularly on the summer her mother died, and the life this remarkable woman had lead.
This journal offers a loving and poignant portrait of L'Engle's mother in old age that is more about living than dying.
Madeline L'Engle, the popular author of many books for children and adults, has interspersed her writing and teaching career with raising three children, maintaining an apartment in New York and a farmhouse of charming confusion which is called "Crosswicks."
