America's First Civil War

What did you love best about Liberty's Exiles?

Maya Jasanoff's narrative on what might be thought of as America's first civil war — the Revolution — is an engaging and comprehensive account of Americans who remained loyal to Britain and their postwar efforts to reclaim their lives in Canada, the Caribbean, India, Africa, and other parts of the British Empire. The narrator, L.J. Ganzer, does an able job, but because the author is female I think the narrator should have been female too.
