Better in a faster speed.

The voice was somewhat dull, but on double speed, the story was much more lively and realistic.

Another great book by Matthew Kirby!

This is only the fourth book I have read by Matthew Kirby but I’m noticing a style to his writing technique. It is so authentic and believable you feel as though you are there at the time in the story with the cast. The guy who read this book seemed to embody the offer! It was almost as though he was made to read this book. As for the story, it was very old-fashioned but so fun to follow! If you enjoy stories of early America, you’ll love this one! I am hoping there will be a sepal with this writer and storyline.
