UNLIKELY ALLIES How a Merchant, a Playwright and a Spy Saved the American Revolution

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Arthur Morey

History • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

A cabal in France may have secured the revolutionary fortunes of the American Colonies in 1776. This book is written in English—with plentiful French—and listeners can expect to hear the ideal narrator for this account of a little-known alliance. Arthur Morey's command of the two languages changes a zirconium into a diamond as he masterfully delivers the true story of "a merchant, a playwright, and a cross-dressing spy." The author embellishes his narrative by constructing it to read like a complex and compelling novel. Taking advantage of the form, Morey employs nuances to augment both the character development and the intrigue. His bilingual fluency turns the pain of reading French into the exquisite pleasure of hearing it. J.A.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2010]
