Why has a time gate opened and dropped Polly into a world that existed 3,000 years ago? Will she be able to get back to the present before the time gate closes -- and leaves her to face a group of people who believe in human sacrifice?

All of Madeleine L'Engle's books that I have listened to have been up beat with good moral lessons. The healthy mix of mythology, science and good moral sense added to a well written story line leaves a fresh taste in the mouth and a lifting of the heart. She was truly a master story teller.
Both my 10 y.o. child and I tried to listen to this, having enjoyed the first 3 books in the quintet and it was sort of dull and meandering like the 4th book.
It's an extremely dull plot, would be better to read than to listen to as an audiobook so you could skip around more readily.
No, her voice was really irritating

This book meets an exceptionally rare demographic...expert Christian fantasy. The Time Quintet meets that definition right along with Blessed Saint John and Blessed Saint Jack. (Tolkien & Lewis.)
The rain storm. (No Spoilers!)
Yes. I particularly liked the fact that the pacing and conflict were maintained throughout, even though every single one of the characters were sympathetically drawn. (No true villains in this piece.) A truly family-friendly book.
This book earned 5 stars because it is one of my perpetual listens. It works standing alone, but it is even more powerful as the conclusion to the Time Quintet.
