Book Overview: Many Waters

The third book in Madeleine L'Engle's spellbinding A Wrinkle in Time Quintet.

"Another provocative spellbinding tale." --Philadelphia Inquirer

Some things have to be believed to be seen.

Sandy and Dennys have always been the normal, run-of-the-mill ones in the extraodinary Murry family. They garden, make an occasional A in school, and play baseball. Nothing especially interesting has happened to the twins until they accidentally interrupt their father's experiment.

Then the two boys are thrown across time and space. They find themselves alone in the desert, where, if they believe in unicorns, they can find unicorns, and whether they believe or not, mammoths and manticores will find them.

The twins are rescued by Japheth, a man from the nearby oasis, but before he can bring them to safety, Dennys gets lost. Each boy is quickly embroiled in the conflicts of this time and place, whose populations includes winged seraphim, a few stray mythic beasts, perilous and beautiful nephilim, and small, long lived humans who consider Sandy and Dennys giants. The boys find they have more to do in the oasis than simply getting themselves home--they have to reunite an estranged father and son, but it won't be easy, especially when the son is named Noah and he's about to start building a boat in the desert.

Praise for Many Waters:

"Sandy and Dennys, twins and middle children in the Newbery-winning A Wrinkle in Time, are transported to the time just before the Flood. . . This will be enjoyed for its suspense and humor as well as its other levels of meaning." -- Kirkus Reviews

"L'Engle blends speculative fiction with biblical theology to create another provocative spellbinding tale." -- Philadelphia Inquirer

Madeleine L'Engle was an American author best known for her critically acclaimed young adult fiction, particularly her science fantasy series 'A Wrinkle in Time'. Born on November 29, 1918, in New York City, she found her passion for storytelling early on, eventually leading to a career rich in literary achievements, which spanned more than six decades and encompassed more than 60 books. L'Engle's literary journey began with her first book, "The Small Rain", published in 1945. However, she catapulted to fame with the publication of 'A Wrinkle in Time' in 1962, which bagged the prestigious Newbery Medal for excellence in children's literature. This book marked the beginning of the Time Quintet series, alluding to complex scientific concepts and eliciting unprecedented resonance across generations of young readers. While Madeleine L'Engle used her writing to navigate the convergence of science and faith, her works resonated well beyond this niche. She fearlessly explored subjects that were considered taboo, such as death, love, and human frailty. Her unique blend of realism and fantasy, combined with thoughtful interrogation of moral and philosophical questions, ensures that her legacy deliciously lives on. L'Engle passed away on September 6, 2007, leaving behind an enduring wealth of inspiration for readers of all ages.
