A Live Coal in the Sea by Madeleine L'Engle

A well-written narrative of a family's secrets, mysteries and surprise resolution. The resolution is mostly satisfying, though there are a few loose ends I'd have liked tied up. The story portrays beautiful relationships between people of different generations, especially the women, and those 'elders' whose wisdom has come via harsh experiences. A bit edgier than other L'Engle works I've read.
This a fine book. Not sci-fi at all, like A Wrinkle in Time, but similar in that there are threads of science and theology intertwined. There is one particular plot element that is very outdated and cringey. I won’t spoil it. I really tried to keep in mind that this book was written a while ago and thoughts have changed since then. Barring that, it is a nice story about a family that, though they go through a tough ordeal, persevere in the end.

This book was about family secrets, keeping sins under wraps within clergy. The sweeping under the rug things that should be acknowledged . The author tells an interesting story.
I could not stop reading this beautiful story of extraordinary but ordinary people making their way through whatever life throws at them with grace.
Many interesting twists to the story. A realistic tale with surprises. I enjoy this author’s writing style. The more I read the better it gets. A mixture of science and religious beliefs.
Well told story of a family's brokenness and healing.
Classic. A great way to spend two consecutive evenings.
Great book
