    Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestDNF p.54 Like most kids, I read A WRINKLE IN TIME when I was young and I really, really loved it Not just because it was an intellectual fantasy that didn t talk down to its readers but because the heroine was bespectacled like I was YAAAASS.I was really excited to receive a copy of THE MOMENT OF TENDERNESS, which is a collection of L Engle s earlier stories from the 40s and 50s that predate A WRINKLE IN TIME Many of them

    As a child, A WRINKLE IN TIME by MADELEINE L ENGLE was probably my favorite book I can t even count how many times I read it THE MOMENT OF TENDERNESS is an absolute treasure of short stories compiled by L ENGLE s granddaughter She published the early works of L ENGLE in somewhat chronological order so that you can see the progression of the author s writing Even though the first ones are rough, they immediately transport me Similar to Judy Blume, L ENGLE just GETS

    Received this book as part of the Vine Program.L Engle has always been one of my favorite writers Ever since I picked up A Ring of Endless Light as a pre teen and fell into a world so sad and wonderful and poignant that it changed me It s a book that I ve returned to often and I always get some kind of new meaning from it But enough about that book, let s talk about this one.This was published after L Engle s death When her granddaughter found some of her old stories sto

    I name Madeleine as my favorite author or less out of habit I m not as gaga for her as I was in middle and high school But even so, there was no chance I wouldn t pick up this collection of short stories, most of them previously unpublished Overall, it s a good, though not great, collection Its strength for me lies in its breadth of genres typical L Engle philosophical talk science fiction fantasy coming of age slice of life Its greatest weakness, of course, is Madeleine s typi

    This book took me longer than I expected to get through Like most short story collections, there were stories I wanted of, stories I couldn t keep up with, stories that puzzled me, and stories that made me pause and digest a while I loved Madeleine L Engle s Time Quintet as a kid and revisit them every so often I ve never read any of her adult works and Moment of Tenderness definitely falls into the adult category Her writing style always appeals and this book had that nostalgic flavour, even thoug

    ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review It s always exciting to read or hear something new from an author or artist that was unearthed or not released until after their death A lot of great timeless stories, usually told by a female narrator and tending to be presented in order of the main character s age I am very much a proponent of story and essay collections being very deliberately organized, and this one satisfied me

    This is a collection of short stories pulled together by Madeleine L Engle s granddaughter since sorting through her grandmother s papers after Madeleine s death in 2007 They were written prior to the 1962 publication of A Wrinkle in Time There is quite an assortment of genres.I am not a huge short story reader, but I did enjoy these.
