This book is my favourite out of the Murry series. The other books in this series are A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, Many Waters, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, The Arm of the Starfish, Dragons in the Waters, and An Acceptable Time. A House Like a Lotus is probably also my favourite Madeleine L'Engle fiction book. I was especially impressed with the sensitive, compassionate treatment of a painful and controversial issue which this book offers. Polly is one of Madeleine L'Engle's deepest and most complex characters- I would love to know what she ends up doing when she grows up!
