A flash of lightning, quivering ground, and, instead of her grandparents' farm, Polly sees mist and jagged mountains -- and coming toward her, a group of young men carrying spears.

Why has a time gate opened and dropped Polly into a world that existed 3,000 years ago? Will she be able to get back to the present before the time gate closes -- and leaves her to face a group of people who believe in human sacrifice?

    " Loved it. Completely read all of these out of order but I really liked them all. "

    " I've been a fan of Madeleine L'Engle since childhood, and read many of her books, both for children and adults. I've never really read one I didn't like. Until this one. Maybe my tastes have just changed and I need to go back and reread her other books, but An Acceptable Time really didn't do it for me. The plot was contrived, the way Polly interacted with the "natives" read like some kind of really old, non-PC cowboys and indians book, and I just never got involved in the story at all. Also, Zachary Gray, the dark, brooding love interest from several of her other books, reappeared in this one, and got turned from a disturbed but loveable young man into a whiny accomplice to attempted murder. This series could have done without a fifth book. "

    " My problem with this book isn't the story itself, although it didn't completely redeem the book for me. The dialogue was unbelievable. I've read the previous books in the Wrinkle in Time series, so I know the characters are unusually intelligent and articulate, but it's difficult to imagine people structuring sentences in such a way while speaking and so is a bit hard to take seriously. "
