    Grandfather takes a downward turn and needs to have blood for transfusions. Leo Rodney has been just a friend for years, but the tragic loss of his father causes him to turn to Vicky for comfort—and romance. To complicate matters, she finds herself as the center of attention for three very different boys.

    He tells her that she "called" him meaning with ESP and he came. The story takes place in lateth century New England. Vicky has her suspicions about this rich young man, and they are confirmed when Zachary, a young man who met her the previous summer, tells her that he was the rescued individual. Once again, Madeleine L'Engle has written a story that revels in the drama of vividly portrayed characters and events of the spiritual and moral dimensions of common human experiences. Binnie's father is radically religious and is constantly disposing of the medication that control the seizures.

    Related to this is the theme of religious faith in the face of death, a problem Vicky previously confronted in The Moon by Night. He appears to have a heart condition. Comparison with the novel The television adaptation is considerably "lighter" in tone than the novel A Ring of Endless Light.
