Vicky Austin is filled with strong feelings as she stands near Commander Rodney's grave while her grandfather, who himself is dying of cancer, recites the funeral service. Watching his condition deteriorate as the summer passes on beautiful Seven Bay Island is almost more than Vicky can bear. To complicate things, she finds herself the center of attention for three very different boys: Leo is an old friend wanting comfort and longing for romance; Zachary, whose attempted suicide inadvertently caused the Commander's death, is attractive and sophisticated but desperately troubled; and Adam, her older brother's friend, offers her a wonderful chance to assist in his experiments with dophins but treats her as a young girl just when she's ready to feel most grown-up.Called upon to be dependable, stable, and wise, Vicky is exhilarated but often overwhemed. Forces of darkness and light, tragedy and joy, hover about her, and at times she doesn't know whcih will prevail.

4.0 A Ring of Endless Light (Austin Family)
I came across this book some time ago on Audible.com where I believe it was free so I figured I'd give it a try. It also fit in nicely with the fact that I am doing a "Reading the Alphabet" challenge and was in search for an "H".I am very glad I stuck with this one. At the beginning I almost gave up...

5.0 A Ring of Endless Light
This book kept me alive when I was a confused, lost tween. I dreamed of having the Austin family as my own and it encouraged and didn't shame my blossoming psychic gifts. I adore this book and have re-read it many times.

0.0 A Ring of Endless Light: The Austin Family Chronicles, Book 4
Entirely too sad, slow, and boring. Madeleine L'Engle's fantasy works, especially the "Time Quintet," are a hundred times better than this dreck.
