Camilla finds she's growing up and coming into her own in her fifteenth year when her life seems all of a sudden not quite so idyllic and secure as it was just a few months before this fall and winter. The story is set in NYC just after WWII, which is interesting as a set piece of what it was like growing up there and in a privileged Upper East Side setting with friends who live in the Village.

I'm not sure I'd have even known the authors referred to in this book at the same time?and wonder how Frank's discussions about God would have struck me then. The book seemed a little ?preachy' to me now?like Heidi was when reading it when nearly 60! I'm glad I read it and can't quite remember why it was recommended to me. L'Engle is a treasure; everyone should read her books.
