Read in April, 1996 — I own a copy

I read this book for a 5th grade book report and made a diorama (anyone else remember those?). MANY WATERS is a large departure from the other Murray books, being about Sandy and Dennys rather than Meg and Charles Wallace. The scale of their coming-of-age is more intimate and less fantastic than Meg and Charles Wallace's and much more sexy.

I did not realise L'Engle considered herself a Christian writer--I had always thought of her as science-fiction as a child. However, upon rereading her books, I see the Christian influences. MANY WATERS is the most overtly Christian of the Murray books being set in pre-flood Biblical times.
