Read my review of my favorite L’Engle novel, A Ring Of Endless Light.
“I’m Sara, by the way,” the young prisoner across from her said, throwing Noelle an effervescent, innocent smile.
Noelle didn’t answer. She stood to leave.
“Hey, I’m not going to knife you in the back and steal your clothes. These digs are stylin’ and all, but they’re the same as yours,” she said jokingly. “Just tell me your name.”
“Noelle. Noelle Reid,” she said.

“A man named Nelson Mandela once fought against a seemingly unbeatable adversary—apartheid. In his country, people were classified and separated by race. Those with the darkest skin were deprived of basic human needs and oppressed by the government. Mandela was in prison for twenty-seven years but he never gave up hope. He once said, ‘The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.’ Don’t believe the lie that you shouldn’t be afraid. Fear is normal. Use it. Conquer it. Remember—the Guardian has prepared your path. She chose each of you especially for this task. Work together and return to us safely.”
–The Red Cloak, Volume 2 of Days of the Guardian
“Be a hero!”
“The Cloak of Dreams?” Li asked.
“It’s a story about an emperor with a sad dilemma,” Ellen explained to Li. “He loved his wife very much, but she had a dreaming soul. When he held her in his arms, her soul wandered far away to her dream world. So she spent five years embroidering the images of her dreams onto a cloak and presented it to the emperor. If he wore the cloak, no longer would she have to choose between the path of her dreams and the path of her love. If he didn’t wear the cloak, he could hold her, but her soul would continue to wander. He chose to wear the cloak.”
“And she followed him at a distance for the rest of her life,” Ainsling finished explaining to Li. “It’s the sacrifice he makes because he loves her. She can’t touch him, but they are closer than ever. Isn’t that beautiful, Li?”
