Inhaltsangabe: A teenage boy with unusual powers faces the challenge of his life when he's transported to a primitive society.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 7 Up-- Startlingly realistic dreams haunt teenager Rocco Makepeace, becoming stronger until he is swept away into another time and place. Here, in the Valley of Anshur, he lives with a tribe of gentle hunter/gatherer cave-dwellers, certain that he is in his world's past. An aged healer-woman, Ayoshe, helps him fit into his new life so well that the tribe agrees to accept some of the modern improvements he is able to construct for them, and to allow him to be handfast to a young woman whom he loves. It is only when he discovers that Anshur is in his future, and Ayoshe a relation born during his own real life, that he is snapped back into his original time frame. There, he finds he has been ill, in a coma, for a long period. It is only when Rocco realizes that a nuclear holocaust must have been the catastrophe that caused the regression of society and civilization that led to Anshur, and discovers that a long-lost family member has just had a baby daughter, Ayoshe, that he understands. While the ending is contrived (how many family trees have rocketry expert defectors in their branches?), readers do become involved with Rocco and his two worlds. The message that little things (in this case, a letter written and mailed) can have enormous impact is one that may benefit young people. While not a perfect book, A Time of Darkness is readable, thought-provoking, and consciousness-raising. No small achievement. --Patricia Manning, Eastchester Public Library, NY
