Wengle, Marian Engle: An AnnotatedBibliography A6, Spadoni and Donnelly 2955. "'The Glassy Sea' is a beautif ully orchestrated novel of one extraordinary woman's spiritual odyssey, unfolding in the midst of a crisis of faith and emotion, a dark night of the soul that lasts a season and spans a lifetime. There is compassionate mastery in Ms Engel's full-blooded characterization of Marguerite Heber, an Anglican nunm who is, first and foremost, a woman -- one who has experienced marraige, motherhood, and the tragic break-up of the family. Her crucible produces a startling and utterly unorthodox resolution, a vision born of her own turbulent experience, gearted to the world and embodying all the elementsof her singular character." - from the dustjacket. A couple of foxed spots to fore-edge, else very good in edgeworn, unclipped dustjacket. Signed and inscribed by Engel to Canadian author H.R. ("Bill") Percy and his wife, on the title page. 40.00
