A family's deepest secrets are exposed in this "haunting domestic drama" from the award-winning author of A Wrinkle in Time (Publishers Weekly).

When her teenage granddaughter comes to her with a troubling question, Camilla Dickinson must confront the painful history she's long kept hidden. Forced to relive her past, she relates a complex saga involving her beautiful, adulterous mother, her troubled son, and the difficult choices that have affected three generations of her family.

As she goes through the difficult process of revealing her secrets, Camilla also lets go of the burden of lies she's told. A testament to the power of acceptance and forgiveness, A Live Coal in the Sea is ultimately an exploration of the lengths to which people will go for love—and the things they'll do to protect family.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Madeleine L'Engle including rare images from the author's estate.
