Many Waters by Madeleine L'Engle

Many Waters by Madeleine L'Engle


New York : Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1986. First edition. Stated. Hardcover. 310 pages ; 22 cm. Price clipped dust jacket with minimal wear. Small sticker on front dust jacket. A very good copy with firm binding, clean and unmarked pages.

Nothing especially interesting has ever happened to Sandy and Dennys, the run-of-the-mill twins in the extraordinary Murry family. Nothing, that is, until the bitter cold afternoon when, fooling around in their parents' lab, they type on the new computer: TAKE ME SOMEPLACE WARM . . . SOMEPLACE WARM AND SPARSELY POPULATED . . .

And tessering across time and space, Sandy and Dennys are suddenly in a harsh desert land where, if they believe in unicorns, they can find unicorns, and whether they believe or not, mammoths and manticores will find them. They are rescued by Japheth, a man from the nearby oasis, whose sister Yalith both boys fall in love with. Soon embroiled in the conflicts of this remote, fantastic place in which winged seraphim, perilous but beautiful nephilim, and small, long-lived humans coexist uneasily, the twins discover they have more to do than simply get themselves home.

With her characteristic inventiveness and storytelling genius, Madeleine L'Engle has created what is perhaps her most remarkable adventure novel. Many Waters continues the distinguished and popular Time Trilogy, made up of Newbery Medal winner A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, and A Swiftly Tilting Planet.
