Many Waters Author:Madeline L'Engle 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...

They are rescued by Japheth, a man from the nearby oasis, whose sister Yalith both boys fall in love with.

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.« less
