She's never felt so alive. And soon she finds another passion: Kurt Canitz, the dashing young director of the company, who is the first man Elizabeth's ever kissed who has really meant something to her. Then Elizabeth's perfect summer is profoundly shaken when Kurt turns out not to be the kind of man she thought he was.
Moving and romantic, this coming-of-age story was written during the 1940s. As revealed in an introduction by the author's granddaughter, Léna Roy, the protagonist, Elizabeth, is close to an autobiographical portrait of L'Engle herself as a young woman - "vibrant, vulnerable, and yearning for love and all that life has to offer".

"Teens...will warm to the author's characteristic, slice-to-the-heart expressions of emotion, while the realistic portrayal of the summer-stock theater scene will draw aspiring actors." (Booklist)
i Have listen to all 4 of Madeleine L'Engle's audio books and i think they are all fantastic. when i listen to this it transported me back in time too the 1940s. Maggie meg read acted all the characters brilliantly and brought it to life. its a great book and i cant wait for more of them to be available by audio.
