    An Acceptable Time, the final book in Madeleine L'Engle's Time Quintet, the series that began with the Newbery Award winnerA Wrinkle in Time.While spending time with her grandparents, Alex and Kate Murry, Polly O'Keefe wanders into a time 3,000 years before her own.

    "A rich and heady brew . . . fine fantasy, firmly rooted in reality.'' —Publisher's Weekly

    Under their feet, the ground seemed to tremble.

    A flash of lightning, quivering ground, and, instead of her grandparents' farm, Polly sees mist and jagged mountains -- and coming toward her, a group of young men carrying spears.

    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?

    Praise forAn Acceptable Time:

    “When Polly O'Keefe visits her grandparents in Connecticut, she finds herself caught up in the lives of three mysterious strangers [who lived] 3,000 years ago [and] travels back in time to play a crucial role in an ancient confrontation. . . L'Engle has again achieved the award-winning style ofA Wrinkle in Time. . . Highly recommended.” —VOYA
