An Acceptable Time , the final book in Madeleine L'Engle's Time Quintet, the series that began with the Newbery Award winner A 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 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?

A story I'm glad to have read, as certain aspects of it and its characters felt immensely unique and rather tricky to manage as far as plots go. However, I didn't care for the disconnect between books 1-4 and this one, or on a more personal level, some of Polly's actions (or lack thereof) towards the end.

Having read the rest of the "time" quintet, this book was a serious disappointment.
The first 200 pages was just endless talking over the same things. And the fact that Mr. Murray, the guy who invented the tesserect technology, refused to believe that Polly could be tesserecting herself, was simply preposterous.
