A novel about the darker side of love by the bestselling author of A Wrinkle in Time and the Crosswicks Journals.

From the moment Henry Porcher first sees Ilsa Brandes, he worships her. Despite controversy surrounding the young girl, Henry is drawn to her, a fascination that turns into a lifelong infatuation.

As the years pass, Ilsa's memory never leaves him, not until the day he returns to their sleepy Southern hometown and renews their childhood friendship. Henry watches as she becomes a wife, then a mother, then a widow, irrevocably changed by tragedy.

Out of print for nearly six decades, this rare and sought-after novel is a portrait of a remarkable woman bound by both the stifling conventions of her time and place, and her own sense of honor and purpose.

A departure from L'Engle's later works, Ilsa is a dark, intriguing novel about passion, fixation, and the real price of unrequited love by an author renowned for her children's classics as well as her candid personal memoirs.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Dominated by an all pervasive, if tenuous, atmosphere, this is a study in place and personality, a still life of the south in all its inertia and its persistence for the past. . . . There is considerable charm here, an effectiveness compounded of subtlety and indirection, giving this a very definite appeal for discerning readers." -Kirkus Reviews
