Book review: Ingathering, by Zenna Henderson


Ingathering: The Complete People Stories of Zenna HendersonIngathering: The Complete People Stories of Zenna Henderson by Zenna Henderson

I read most or all of these stories many years ago, and I really enjoyed re-reading them. They are “theistic” sci-fi, without being too much in-your-face about it (at least not by my standards). They are written with a lot of imagination, and really made an impression on me when I first read them as a child. As I found when I re-read the Chronicles of Narnia and other books I last read decades ago, I still remember my mental images of key scenes sometimes very vividly, even though I may have forgotten the rest of the story.
Reading them now as an adult, I realize that they are often a bit melodramatic, but not so much as to make them unpalatable for me.
