Have i mentioned how much i LOVE all of Madeline L'Engle's books? i just finished reading Many Waters for the umpteenth time. it is an amazing retelling (well, retelling is not the right word but i can't think of a better one) of the story of Noah's Ark. and when i say "retelling" i mean that she takes two characters from the Wrinkle in Time books and has them accidentally travel into Noah's time. This book goes far more in depth than the Bible does and i know she made much of it up, so if you're looking for a Biblically accurate book, this is not for you. However it is a wonderful story that works the Biblical setting with the modern setting. It's just awesome. it does have some "romance" but it has the good kind. the kind that shows what love really is. nothing physical, just being together. a central theme is love in all forms. "Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it"
go read it. it's pretty awesome.
