And Both Were Young is good as boarding school stories go and has a sweet uiet romance but I don't think the part of the plot which has to do with Paul's history works very well with the rest of it I mean the wartime amnesia thing is fine and interesting but not the mysterious stranger part Anyway I do like the convincing way in which Flip grows from shyness to confidence during the course of the book and of course I pretty much always like boarding school stories

Dammit I love Flip I love Madeleine L'Engle I love the idea of boarding schools Switzerland and French boys and girls snowed into a storm of romance adventure and heartbreaking loneliness I've also only realized that I've always had a strange attraction for the widowed father and only daughter stories This one absolutely fills that nicheI've reread this book countless times now and each read only makes me happier and sentimental for the gorgeous but grounding tales of Madeleine L'Engle Some may say And Both Were Young is not her best but for those readers who can appreciate L'Engle's work for its simplistic beauty it certainly will prove satisfying and complete I'd also like to comment that since I was 12 this book has made me want a winter wedding by candlelight in a chapel in the middle of the woods Just fyi in case someone out there shares the same fantasy
