Madeleine L'Engle

When I was in my teens, a number of decades ago, Madeleine L'Engle was my favorite author.  I re-read several of her books a few weeks ago.  I don't really like her any more.  She struggles to expand her mind to embrace diversity of race, class, and sexual orientation, but it feels like it's a struggle for her.  Her mind is still fenced in by a life of privilege. Mercedes Lackey and Tamora Pierce present diversity with more ease.
