Book: A wind in the door

Author: Madeleine L'Engle

Details: (c) 1973 Crosswicks Ltd; Pub Dell Yearling 1974; ISBN 0-440-487617

Verdict: A wind in the door is a readable and thought-provoking children's classic.

Reasons for reading it: I liked L'Engle as a child, and the sad recent news of her death prompted me to reread this.

How it came into my hands: I picked it up in a second hand bookshop in Berkeley when I was travelling. It appears to be signed, though I don't know whether L'Engle really did sign it or if the owner forged her signature because he was such a big fan.
