Narrator Shamaan Casey paints a vivid picture of life in the Colonies from the viewpoint of everyday people before the start of the American Revolution. Listeners will meet the Harris family, hardworking Quakers who use "thee" and "thou" to address everyone. Casey's talent guarantees that the speech of each character flows naturally. Adding to the verisimilitude of the setting is dialogue between a mother and her young daughter about baking bread and sewing a hat. It's painful to hear Peter Harris denounce his son, Robert, at a Quaker meeting because Robert believes the British must be forcefully stopped to protect their new country's freedoms. Overhearing the townsfolk debate whether to support or fight the British army as it draws closer is captivating. Listeners will find the fast-paced story as compelling as any modern adventure story.
