Square Fish An Acceptable Time, Time Quintet #5

Polly O'Keefe has recently come to live in the country with her grandparents, the famous scientists Alex and Kate Murry, when she wanders into a time 3,000 years before her own. Perhaps it's not an accident - as she is told by two druids: When a gate betweencircles of time opens, it opens for a reason. When the gate closes behind Polly and her gravely ill friend Zachary, the reason becomes clear. In this desperate time, can Polly keep herself and Zachary alive until the gate reopens to bring them home?

This book dealt with issues about a person dying as well as pagan belief systems. In the book, there was some doctrine discussed about Christianity, but it was very ambiguous and dealt much more with talk about the "Power" - a goddess. No mention of Jesus being the only way to God. Several items could be taken out of context by kids who may not "catch" some of the subtleties of belief. A disappointing read - not uplifting.

I love all of Madeline L'Engle's classic Time Quintet, and this is no exception. One thing about this book that has always stuck out to me is the contrast between Zachary and Polly. Zachary, a troubled young man with a heart condition, does not believe in an afterlife of any kind, and his terror of obliteration drives him to desperate, selfish actions. Polly, on the other hand, finds that her belief in a loving God helps her to make courageous, selfless descions.I reccommend this and the rest of the series to anyone who likes deep, thought-provoking, but also very exciting adventures.
