Book Overview: A Swiftly Tilting Planet

In this companion volume to "A Wrinkle In Time" (Newbery Award winner) and "A Wind In The Door" fifteen-year-old Charles Wallace and the unicorn Gaudior undertake a perilous journey through time in a desperate attempt to stop the destruction of the world by the mad dictator Madog Branzillo. They are not alone in their quest. Charles Wallace's sister, Meg--grown and expecting her first child, but still able to enter her brother's thoughts and emotions by "kything"--goes with him in spirit.

But in overcoming the challenges, Charles Wallace must face the ultimate test of his faith and will, as he is sent within four people from another time, there to search for a way to avert the tragedy threatening them all.

"Charles Wallace ( A Wrinkle in Time), now 15, Meg, and the Murrys reappear in an intricately woven fantasy in which the boy time-spins through a tangle of history to find and mend the broken link that threatens to disturb the harmony of today." -- Starred, Booklist

Madeleine L'Engle was an American author best known for her critically acclaimed young adult fiction, particularly her science fantasy series 'A Wrinkle in Time'. Born on November 29, 1918, in New York City, she found her passion for storytelling early on, eventually leading to a career rich in literary achievements, which spanned more than six decades and encompassed more than 60 books. L'Engle's literary journey began with her first book, "The Small Rain", published in 1945. However, she catapulted to fame with the publication of 'A Wrinkle in Time' in 1962, which bagged the prestigious Newbery Medal for excellence in children's literature. This book marked the beginning of the Time Quintet series, alluding to complex scientific concepts and eliciting unprecedented resonance across generations of young readers. While Madeleine L'Engle used her writing to navigate the convergence of science and faith, her works resonated well beyond this niche. She fearlessly explored subjects that were considered taboo, such as death, love, and human frailty. Her unique blend of realism and fantasy, combined with thoughtful interrogation of moral and philosophical questions, ensures that her legacy deliciously lives on. L'Engle passed away on September 6, 2007, leaving behind an enduring wealth of inspiration for readers of all ages.
