A Wrinkle in Time is a palpitating story of space and time travel, that blends mystery with science-fiction. In their quest to find their father who disappeared in the course of secret work for the government on an unlikely problem - the tesseract problem - the three young heroes encounter a mysterious, unearthly stranger, and their lives take an unexpected, fantastic turn as they must uncover the mysteries of a four-dimensional reality.

Madeleine L'Engle (1918-2007) was an American writer of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and young adult fiction. Her works reflect the two key-aspects of her personality: her strong Christian faith on the one hand, and her fascination with science on the other.
