book review: "Many Waters" by Madeleine L'Engle

Madeleine L'Engle

Twins Sandy and Dennys Murphy disturb their father’s experiment on space and time travel and find themselves displaced back in the time of Noah and the flood.

“Many Waters” was my introduction to Madeleine L’Engle, and it was a favorite in grade school. I was afraid I had outgrown it, but thankfully I still find it beautiful - An atmosphere still pure one can see billions of stars. The sound of baboons clapping to greet the dawn. Listening to the wind and stars talking. Unicorns and mammoths and manticores and griffins. Silver and golden seraphim, cool and fiery nephilim.
