Lyhyt elämäkerta
Madeleine L'Engle Camp began writing stories, poems and journals at a young age. When she was 12, she moved with her parents to the French Alps and went to an English boarding school. She attended high school back in the USA at Ashley Hall in Charleston, South Carolina, vacationing with her mother in an old cottage on Florida Beach.

She majored in English at Smith College and graduated with honors in 1941. She moved into an apartment in Greenwich Village in New York, worked in the theater, and published her first two novels, A Small Rain (1945) and Ilsa (1946). In 1946, she married Hugh Franklin, an actor, whom she met while an understudy in Anton Chekov’s The Cherry Orchard. The couple moved to Connecticut to raise their family on a small dairy farm village with more cows than people; they later returned to New York City with three children. Madeleine began an association with the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, where she was the librarian and maintained an office for more than 30 years. She produced more than 60 books during her career.

For a family with four kids, two dogs, assorted cats, and a constant stream of family and friends dropping by, life in the Austin family home has always been remarkably steady and contented. When a family friend suddenly dies in a plane crash, the Austins open their home to an orphaned girl, Maggy Hamilton. The Austin children--Vicky, John, Suzy, and Rob--do their best to be generous and welcoming to Maggy.

Vicky knows she should feel sorry for Maggy, but having sympathy for Maggy is no easy thing. Maggy is moody and spoiled; she breaks toys, wakes people in the middle of the night screaming, discourages homework, and generally causes chaos in the Austin household. How can one small child disrupt a family of six? Will life ever return to normal?… (lisätietoja)
