Wonderful way to retell history. Very enjoyable
The combination of the reality of the true news stories with the fictional accounts provided by the author's imagination that has been fuelled by his research of the time in history.was
Obviously, the first book in the series comes to mind. Chesapeake 1880 continues in the style of Chesapeake 1850 as this is the next 30 years in the timeline.
Daniel and Sean are definitely favourites as they seek out their place in this new world that they have come to.
Easy listening and a very way to learn about an interesting time.. The afternoon really went by quickly while this book was on.
