The beloved author of A Wrinkle in Time takes an introspective look at her life and muses on creativity in this memoir, the first of her Crosswicks Journals. Every so often I need OUT. . . . My special place is a small brook in a green glade, a circle of quiet from which there is no visible sign of human beings. . . . I sit there, dangling my legs and looking through the foliage at the sky reflected in the water, and things slowly come back into perspective. Set against the lush backdrop of Crosswicks, her family’s farmhouse in rural Connecticut, this deeply personal memoir details Madeleine L’Engle’s journey to find balance between her career as a Newbery Medal–winning author and her responsibilities as a wife, mother, teacher, and Christian. As she considers the roles that creativity, family, citizenship, and faith play in her life, L’Engle reveals the complexities behind the author whose works—honored with the National Book Award, the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award, and countless other prizes—have long been cherished by children and adults alike. Written in simple, profound, and often humorous prose, A Circle of Quiet is an insightful woman’s elegant search for the meaning and purpose of her life. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Madeleine L’Engle including rare images from the author’s estate.

Before healing can begin for Kelli and Heather, they need to believe they are worth cherishing. Kelli London once dreamed of being a songwriter. As crazy as it seemed, she hoped that God would use the lyrics that came to her even while she slept. She dreamed about Brian too, that the love they shared as high-school students would grow into marriage. But choices that still haunt her destroyed those dreams. Until now—when a series of love letters reawakens her hope for the future. Heather Anderson's life has spun out of control—first, an affair with a married man, then a one-night stand with the drummer of a popular Christian band has left her devastated. Broken and alone, she cried out to the only One able to save her. He met her there, but it was just the beginning. Because now she must take a different path. And the one God has planned for her looks nothing like the one she envisioned. As Kelli and Heather awaken to their true worth, they find the freedom to pursue their dreams—and relationships—based on the security of knowing God's unconditional love.

Prompted by a post card photograph, 'A Quiet Place' is about a principled solitary man ( Spade) on a pre-designated journey to retirement. Subconsciously he knows what is happening, consciously he refuses to accept the harshness of reality; slow reflexes, less alert vision and meandering of thought. This mental struggle causes him to relive, like a hallucination, some portions of his life as he travels along a lonely forest path pursued only by himself and a presence.
The Old Couple I walk through the park almost every day And see many things as I go on my way Often I see this old gentleman holding his wifes hand They look at each other with a glance they understand They sit by the lake and feed the birds and ducks Occasionally smiling and giving their knowing looks What a wonderful sight to see love so true It brightens the day and fills your own heart too.
