Description
In 1946, hired as an apprentice for a summer theater company by the sea, 20-year-old Elizabeth is finally realizing her dream of becoming an actress, in this previously unpublished story from the author of A Wrinkle in Time. Learning all she can from her fellow apprentices and the members of the company, Elizabeth has never felt so alive, and she finds yet another passion there: Kurt Canitz, the dashing young director, the first man she's ever kissed who has really meant something to her. Then one Saturday, several events shake up Elizabeth's perfect summer, and she learns about the harsh realities of theater life and love—and about the joys of both. Read by Maggi-Meg Reed, this unabridged recording for young adults (and older ones, too) includes an interview with Madeleine L'Engle's granddaughter Léna Roy, who reveals how similar Elizabeth is to L'Engle herself.

"Written by the late L'Engle in the 1940s and never before published, this romantic coming-of-age story will immediately draw in listeners.... Listening to Reed's narration of this dialogue-rich work is akin to attending a play. Her expert use of pauses, shifts in voices and quiet passion bring this story to life.... The author's granddaughter Léna Roy supplies an introduction and an interview."—Publishers Weekly
