    Life is a fugue Our lives and memories overlap and run into one another Perhaps if I had not spent 20 days this summer at a hospice house this book would only have 4 stars but for me this is the summer of the great grandfather and not a word was wasted Five whole stars worth of words And then there are the chapters of stories stories taking place in places I also know and love that old Florida which I stare into nightly in a painting on my wall Sometimes I almost fall into it and this book was like that for me I cannot go too long without hearing the surf either Madeleine It has been too long thank you for the much needed visit Madeleine herself is now gone but this summer I am reading and living her book I am thankful not to be alone

    In this second volume of The Crosswicks Journal after A Circle of Quiet L’Engle recounts her family history as a way of remembering on behalf of her mother who at age 90 was slipping into dementia in her final summer “I talked awhile earlier this summer about wanting my mother to have a dignified death But there is nothing dignified about incontinence and senility” She found herself in the unwanted position of being like her mother’s mother and had to accept that she had no control over the situation “This summer is practice in dying for me as well as for my mother”One of the reasons L’Engle was driven to write science fiction was because she couldn’t reconcile the idea of permanent human extinction with her Christian faith but nor could she honestly affirm every word of the Creed Hers is a broad minded mystical spirituality that really appeals to meL’Engle’s early life reminds me of May Sarton’s as recounted in I Knew a Phoenix both were born right around World War I raised partially in Europe and sent to boarding school and a frequent theme in their nonfiction is the regenerative power of solitude and of the writing process itselfFavorite lines“I said in a lecture that the artist’s response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or sing or write not to impose restrictive rules but to rejoice in pattern and meaning for there is something in all artists which rejects coincidence and accident And I went on to say that we must meet the precariousness of the universe without self pity and with dignity and courage”“Our lives are given a certain dignity by their very evanescence If there were never to be an end to my quiet moments at the brook if I could sit on the rock forever I would not treasure these minutes so much If our associations with the people we love were to have no termination we would not value them as much as we do”“most of us are not aware of the small things we do—or don’t do—that cause pain which is never forgotten”

    Madeleine L'Engle chronicles the last summer of her mother's life with love honesty and yes even her doubts The loss of a beloved parent is one of the most difficult of life's experiences even though it is one of the most natural I was deeply touched by L'Engle's struggle and quest for peace in this second journal of hers that I have read

    OwnMuch to consider What is the essence of a person the ousia? A wonderful follow up to A Circle of Quiet L'Engle wrestles with life death identity and the soul I particularly loved the section of her mother's ancestry and the stories of the people in her family tree I loved their informal education

    I had read other books my Madeleine like Wrinkle in Time and A Wind in the Door but this book sounded entirely different I don't remember now where I heard about it I think it was mentioned in another book I was reading Nevertheless it was wonderful My greatest take away was how important it is to share stories in our families They will bless our lives

    This one came at a good time We had to say good bye to our dog at the end of August and reading this helped with some of the emotions that one goes through when one suffers a loss of any kind I read this mostly with my dad and we both enjoyed L'Engle's writing as usual but we also enjoyed the stories about her great grandparents grandparents and parents They are fun interesting and exciting stories The sections about her present time with her mother are sad and moving L'Engle does a good job of conveying her feelings of sadness and loss the grieving that she went through before her mother even passed She is honest and open not afraid of coming across callous or disrespectful while always being sensitive and respectful I highly recommend this nonfiction account of her relationship with her mother to L'Engle fans but also to anybody who has become of a parent than a child to her parents or to anybody who has sufferedis suffering loss whether of a parent a beloved pet or a friend

    I am not a huge Madeleine L'Engle fan This book is the second in a trilogy based at the author's home Crosswicks I believe It gives quite a good history of her illustrious ancestors and talks a bit about her mother's declining health and dementia I feel that maybe she was whitewashing things quite a bit Not so much about her mother but about her own life and the life of her ancestors Wouldn't recommend it seemed very pretentious


  8. says:

    This is one of the first books I've read in a while that has let me cry written beautifully conveying emotions honestly and truthfully I love L'Engle's autobiographical works They make me feel a little bit normal and inspire me remarkably to write to read even to do my homework


  9. says:

    This memoir is touching and brings up all the feels Highly recommend

    35 out of 5 starsNot as enjoyable as the first Crosswicks book all that family reminiscing got a little boring for me but still a fantastic read I admit that I'm growing annoyed by Madeleine L'Engle's struggle to simply believe Some things she wants to believe but somehow can't at least not all the time I wonder Is she just honest than the rest of us?
