A touch of computer keys, a blast of heat, and suddenly the Murry twins, Sandy and Dennys, are gasping in a shimmering desert land.  If only the brothers had normal parents, not a scientist mother and a father who experiments with space and time travel.  If only the Murry twins had noticed the note on the door of their mother's lab: Experiment In

Progress.  Please Keep Out

But it's too late for regrets.  There's a strange-and very small-person approaching, with a miniature mammoth in tow. . . .

At last it's Sandy and Dennys's turn for an adventure-an adventure that turns serious when they discover that "many waters" are coming to flood the desert.  The twins must find a way back home soon, or they will drown.  But how will they get back to their own time?  Can they?

    " I enjoyed this book although it was my least favorite of the series. It seemed like L'Engle made a story just so the twins wouldn't be left out, but it wasn't as enlightening as the others. Maybe because of the personalities of the twins, their "boyness"' it was just an adventure story. Nothing wrong with that! I just liked the others better. One thing I did realize I reading this book is how much I enjoy the mystery of where, in time and space, the characters land. I love that moment when I think, hmmm, this time sounds familiar. I'm enjoying my marathon! "

    " An interesting book, and probably my second favorite of the quartet, my favorite being A Wrinkle in Time. I like the idea of coming into a Bible story and changing it for the better, but in a less Veggie Tales w/ Jr. Asparagus kind of way. :) A good read. Looking forward to reading the Austen family series next. "

    " Many Waters is the fourth book in Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time series. This is one of the more fascinating blends of Science Fiction and Fantasy that I've read because it also incorporates some Biblical history. Two high school age children travel back in time to meet Noah and his family just before the world-wide flood. The issues of good vs. evil as well as free will and cultural difference are all explored through this extremely well written book. I found myself thinking about my own life and issues a little bit differently after reading this book because it opened my mind to perspectives I had not considered. I always love it when a book does that because I feel like the book has given me two gifts: the story and also some personal insight. "

    " What a great take on how in was in Noah's time, this book surprised me in a pleasant way! "
