Dear Madeleine L’Engle,

Meet the AustinsI love you, Madeleine.  I’ve read, I’m fairly certain, everything you ever wrote.  Including Meet the Austins, which I’ve reread now in its new and wonderfully understated cover.  Now, far be it from me to say less-than-glowing things about the literature of the deceased, especially the beloved recently deceased, but…I’ve discovered that I love your fantasy much more than your realism.  The older I get, the more and more the religious overtones in your books sit poorly with me; couched in fantasy, it’s quite tolerable, but in the realism stuff it grates on me a little more.  That said, I did enjoy reading this book again after a long time.  Four stars!
