Book 17

Many Waters by Madeleine L’Engle

Another great book in the Time Quintet.

This time, the books main characters are Meg and Charles Wallace’s brothers – Sandy and Dennys. Ever the realists, they find themselves accidentally transported to another time.

The title (and I feel one of the themes in the book) is taken from the Song of Solomon 8:7. This should’ve been an indicator for me that the book will be based on religion. Although I don’t have objections to fictional works based on religious events, I feel like in this day and age, many would.

I enjoyed the story – it was good seeing more of Sandy and Dennys when the previous books didn’t really delve into their stories. The characters were likeable – except the bad guys, obviously, and interweaving it all within a fairly known religious story did two things for me:

1 – want to re-acquaint myself with the religious story

2 – want to keep reading to see what happens to the characters that were added into this story

Looking forward to reading the last book in the Time Quintet.

Happy Reading!
