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.

    " 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! "
