Description
"An unusual and beautiful book," the first novel by the bestselling author of A Wrinkle in Time explores the life of a young artist (Los Angeles Times). At only ten years old, Katherine Forrester has already experienced her fair share of upheaval. It has been three years since she last saw her mother, a concert pianist whose career was cut short by a terrible accident. After a brief reunion, tragedy strikes once more, forcing Katherine from the familiarity of New York City to a foreign Swiss boarding school. Far from home, she struggles with the challenges of growing up. Stifled by her daily routine and the pettiness of her classmates, Katherine's piano lessons with a gifted young teacher provide an anchor in the storm. After graduation, she follows in her mother's footsteps, pursuing a career as a pianist in Greenwich Village. There, she must learn to reconcile her blossoming relationship with her fiancé with the one consistent and dominant force in her life: music. Inspired by the author's time living among artists, The Small Rain follows Katherine's journey from a distraught girl to an exuberant and talented woman with the breadth and poignancy that defines Madeleine L'Engle's signature style. This eBook features an illustrated biography of Madeleine L'Engle including rare images from the author's estate.
