This was by far my favorite of L'Engle's Time series. Sandy and Dennys, the Murry twins and most normal of the family, accidentally travel back to biblical times when people lived for 700 years, and seraphim, nephilim, and unicorns walked among men. And God is just about to send a flood that will wipe out the entire human race.

Yes, Sandy and Dennys have landed in the time of Noah and the Ark. And they must help his family during this "time of change" when the future seems very uncertain and the boys aren't sure if they'll ever find a way home.

This fourth and finally installment in the Time series has great characters, a great setting, excellent world-building, and an amazing premise. I love all the creatures of the desert and the triangle dynamic L'Engle creates between the seraphim, the fallen-angel nephilim, and the desert-dwelling humans.
