1774 The Long Year of Revolution

by Mary Beth Norton | Read by Kimberly Farr

Random House Audio | Unabridged
History

It's a rich time for audiobooks that offer a fresh view of the Revolutionary War. Harvard historian Mary Beth Norton tracks the pivotal "long year" from the Boston Tea Party to Concord and Lexington, and the dramatic shift in public thinking that led to revolution.

When flying, never ever check your racing flats, he tells us. And speaking of shoes, be sure you've taken your Breathe Right strip out of the left one and put it on your nose before starting a 26.2-mile race. After his... Read More

Katherine Littrell's exceptional performance transforms this dialogue-rich #MeToo novel into an audiobook that shows how a skilled narrator can create memorable and, at times, contemptible, characters that raise a book to a higher level.
