A House Like a Lotus characters ô 104 When 16 year old Polly O'Keefe journeys to Athens she feels confused and betrayed The past eight months at home were different from any other time in her life She met the br. Be warned that this review contains serious spoilersMadeleine L Engle is of course best known for her book A Wrinkle in Time and the four books following which chronicle the adventures of Meg and Charles and Meg s future husband Calvin They are fantastical tales of travel at the speed of thought alien worlds monstrous evils to be fought and the power of love in all its formsMadeleine L Engle has a deeper range than young adult science fiction Even knowing this however it was a shock to read A House Like a Lotus It has the love of the Time uartet books but there is no tessering There are no alien worlds to explore and no monstrous evils To see Meg and Calvin coping with a brood of seven children and their eldest daughter Polyhymnia Polly dealing with a straight story about love betrayal and forgiveness makes it feel like you re reading from a different author It is a compelling expansion upon Meg and Calvin s characters and Polly carries the story in the first person with considerable grace as she first befriends and then flees from a dying woman named Maxa It s brilliant but it still takes some getting used toThe story is written with in my opinion a much older audience in mind than A Wrinkle in Time The Time uartet is ageless but A House Like a Lotus deals frankly with sexual issues including homosexuality and Polly s first sexual experience heterosexual I would not recommend this book to anybody under the age of fourteen but to any other fan of L Engle s work this book is a must readAs you can see from other reviews Madeleine L Engle takes it between the eyes for her controversial subject matter Some liberal than her might say that she has demonized homosexuality through Maxa s drunken advances on Polly On the other hand others conservative than Madeleine will not appreciate the fact that sixteen year old Polly has sex outside of marriage once and isn t the least bit unhappy about it and is perfectly open to having it again with someone else The scene where Polly loses her virginity is touchingly and tastefully handled There is too much love going on in this scene for me to believe that a sin is being committedPersonally I did not think Madeleine demonized homosexuality through Maxa s portrayal in this book Maxa is portrayed as a brilliant but hurt individual who is dying suffering and deeply afraid Much is made early on in the story that Maxa and her live in partner Ursula might be lesbians but Meg and Calvin make it uite clear that they believe that what goes on between two consenting adults in private is their own business They refuse to pass judgement and I agree with thatOn the other hand Maxa s advances on Polly were made when Maxa was drunk hurting than ever and afraid than ever about her oncoming death She does hurt Polly this is the focus of the book but she realizes almost right away that what she has done was very wrong but only as it relates to itself Homosexuality is not the defining factor in this shocking and key scene of the book If Maxa had been a man the scene would have had as much if not powerA House Like a Lotus is a book about trust and love and how by just being the humans we are we sometimes don t live up to other people s trust And how we must forgive ourselves and the others who betray us for our human foibles In this regard A House Like a Lotus carries power than the entire Time uartet combined
