In Summer Sanctuary, Matthew, a twelve-year-old preacher’s son, plans to spend the summer researching his theory that Einstein’s work on time dilation is biblical:  “One day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”  He meets Dinah, a temporarily homeless teenager, at his local library and convinces her to live secretly in his church for the summer.  Rich in literary allusions and humor, this novel overflows with music, poetry and science, all appealing to and suitable for middle grade readers.
