I wrote an article Top 10 Memoirs recently and someone mentioned this book, Two-Part Invention: The Story of a Marriage by Madeleine L'Engle as one of their favorites. So, I thought I'd read it and see. Well, since I've never read any of L'Engle's books, I wasn't invested in her as a person, and I imagine that made a difference in how I viewed this memoir. (L'Engle wrote A Wrinkle in Time and many other books for adults and children.)
I liked this book, especially when she described her life with her husband in the 1940s when they were courting and their early marriage but she glossed over years, if not decades in a sentence or two. Instead, she delved deep in her husband's (Hugh Franklin) illness and death, which was touching and well done.
Have you read any of L'Engle's books? Have you read Two-Part Invention? What did you think?
