This was a fairly good time travel book. On this book twins Sandy and Denny, travel back to the time of Noah. When they get there will they be able to get back to their century? I would recommend this book for children ages 9-14.

The first of Madeleine L'Engle's Time Quartet is the Newbery Award winning 'A Wrinkle in Time', and 'Many Waters', published 1986, is the fourth and last in the series. Sandy and Dennys are twins, and are as normal as they come. Their brother and sister usually have the adventures; the Twins prefer baseball and soccer to fanciful talk of magical beasts and time travel. Their parents are both famous scientists and they should know better, but when they fool with their father's physics experiment, which involves warping time and space, they get the shock of a lifetime. They are flung far back in time and in space from Massachusetts to the deserts of Iraq, long before even the culture of ancient Sumeria. Here the earth is younger and the lives of humans are still measured in centuries, not decades. The unicorn has not yet disappeared from earth, the hungry manticore perpetually stalks its prey, a tame pygmy mammoth will help you scent new waterholes in the desert, and the powerful Nephilim have set their desires on the daughters of Men. For those who have ears to hear, the music of the stars can be heard. The wisest and best of ancient Man still hear and obey the Voice of El, and the mighty Seraphim still do his bidding on earth in physical form. But all is not well in the land and a mighty Flood is to come to wipe out the wrongs. Sandy and Dennys must get home before it is too late, and do it without creating a paradox which would change the future. I would rank this fascinating story alongside some of Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, and it is a fitting close to the Quartet.
