An Acceptable Time by Madeleine L’Engle
This is the last book in the Time Quintet which started with ‘A Wrinkle in Time’.
The main characters of the other books (Meg, Charles Wallace, the twins) were mentioned but not involved in the book. It centers around Polly (Meg’s daughter) and her adventures at her grandparents house.
This book gave me mixed emotions – I liked Polly because she’s pretty kickass, Grand and Grandfather Murray annoyed me a bit – that family has been on so many adventures yet they couldn’t believe what was happening with Polly??? I hated one of the characters – which in my opinion is a sign of a great writer.
It took me a couple of chapters to get into the book but once I got there, I began to thoroughly enjoy it. I enjoyed the new characters and the guardian dog (Og!). I still don’t fully understand parts of it but I like how it ended.
