Clear, Strong and Accurate in every way!
Very high, in the very top.
I loved the clarity and voice of the narrator as well as the obvious love of the subject.
His choice of a southern gentleman's accent was brilliant and really brought you "into" the book in a unique way.
As a living Historian it was wonderful to hear these stories played out so passionate way. I love the idea of a History/Cookbook done in the form of an audio book. It adds a depth that most cookbooks could never hope for and story telling is a plus in any form. The author is truly in love with what she is writing about and it shows all the way through this beautiful book.
As an aside, a cookbook done in this audio format would seem ideal for those people with visual impairments. I couldn't be happier with this wonderful book!

Wonderful, Interesting Cookbook
Roxe Anne Peacock has succeeded in the difficult task of making a cookbook interesting to the listener as well as the reader. She does so by placing us in the times and the event of America’s Civil War. She then skillfully relates how particular dishes were eaten when and by what Union or Confederate officers. We feel as if we there, at those soldiers’ meals, taking a moment of culinary delight between the horrible battles. The research for the war is first rate. The research for the soups, breads, entrees, and desserts is outstanding. You’ll want to buy the book as well so you make the tasty recipes yourself. Good listening. Good eating.
It's a cookbook, but I always like anything about General Lee.
I can listen to it while driving.
Oh gosh, I love the stories. Her research is extensive and astounding.
