Book 33

Title: A Swiftly Tilting Planet
Author: Madeleine L'Engle
Themes/Topics: Family, Time Travel, Destiny, Choices, Sci/Fi

Somehow I read the Time Quartet out of order and didn't get to this one until last. I liked it and found it interesting and comforting, much like all of L'Engle's other novels but I didn't like this one quite as much. I think part of the problem was that going so far back into family genealogy quickly became confusing with the elements of time travel: it was a little distracting.

The message and characters were solid as always, but I didn't like this one as much as the rest of the quartet
