by | Read by Hope Davis

Children Ages 10+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1962

Hope Davis is wonderful narrating Madeleine L'Engle’s children’s classic. The 1963 Newbery Award winner is the first in L'Engle’s Time Quintet, featuring Murry siblings Meg and Charles Wallace, and their friend, Calvin. Through Davis’s appealing performance, listeners share the youngsters’ extraordinary adventures through space and time. Davis creates fully realized, completely credible children whose actions determine their own fate, the fate of their loved ones, and the continued existence of the known universe. As the children do battle with the forces of good and evil, and even as the realities of a coming-of-age story unfold, Davis keeps the tender heart of this well-loved sci-fi tale in the foreground. Her narration provides a thrilling plot, convincing characterizations, and a strong message of faith and familial love. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2012]
