This book was set in our world but also had a fantasy element to it. It was beautifully written and had a beautiful setting. It was just a little slow for my taste. I prefer books that are a little more plot driven. That said, I did enjoy the journey of the story and wanted to see what happened, it just wasn't a page turner. I liked most of the characters and enjoyed the bit of mystery to the book. I also really enjoyed that it was written with parts of another book in between the chapters. I really like books that do that. It was a nice clean read and I would recommend it for young adults who enjoy a bit of fantasy.… (mais)

Reminiscent of the Secret Garden, this has plenty going for it. Start with excerpts from a fantasy that takes place in an alternate world that are sandwiched between chapters of the story. Add in a large array of characters both human and otherwise, every one a three-D entity. Have teenage Eva Joyce meeting her English grandmother for the first time and being stonewalled every time she asks anyone a question, Then, there are the mysterious things she sees at night, the often and unpredictable personality changes in her grandmother, the mystery surrounding three young women killed in London back in 1952, not to mention her tenuous friendship with Frankie, the grandson of her grandmother's gardener. Oh, and then there's the mysterious statue in a hidden garden that looks just like the granddaughter. There's plenty more packed between the covers and it's all great stuff, blended to make a joy of a read.… (mais)

3.5 stars

This is pretty surface-level which is why I didn't rate it higher. I have a personal preference for books that dig a little deeper and I set my expectations too high for such short books to meet them. That's my issue, not the author's.

Most of the joy I took from this book was in realizing that so many other people were so influenced by L'Engle's thoughts on faith, art, and life. She was so important to me as a teenager and continues to influence my life in countless small ways (I always say that my love of her writing as a kid was foreshadowing for my growing up to be Episcopalian instead of the evangelical I was raised to be). It's wonderful to know that so many other people were having similar experiences, connecting deeply to L'Engle's writing and benefiting from her expansive view of the universe, her wonder and joy, her belief in creation of art as vocation.… (mais)

I read this one fairly slowly, as a devotional, really. And it is just great, better written and just plain better than at least some Shane Claiborne. (I *am* a big fan of Wilson-Hartgrove, including his prose.) The only critique I would offer is that this year of “small” things is actually pretty overwhelming if you think about just taking it up as your own set of practices. A slower pace might work better, both for reading and for developing new habits.
