Description

During the summer of 1946, 20-year-old Elizabeth is doing what she has dreamed of since she was a little girl: working in the theater. Elizabeth is passionate about her work and determined to learn all she can at the summer theater company on the sea where she is an apprentice actress.

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".
