I loved this story and enjoyed Ms. Fortin's writing as well as Mr. Ferguson's narration. He always does an excellent job, and this one was no different. True, his Southern accent was truly southern, but people who are not born and raised in the south, have a stereotype they believe is the true Southern accent. Actually, it depends on which part of the south you're from as to how it should accurately sound. Charleston, Savannah, Atlanta, all have several different variations, depending on location, social standing, and upbringing. Even in "Gone with The Wind", Vivien Leigh was British, not southern. Though it was irritating to many true southerners, she did as well a job as any probably would have and her "look" was right. I think anyone who complains about Mr. Ferguson's rendition, should stop complaining. It is one of the most difficult patterns of speech to replicate and I thought he did as good a job as anyone would have.. To have such a variety of voices and brogues/accents to perform, I thought he did admirably! I love Ms. Fortins plot, depth of characters, and historical accuracy/knowledge of the history. Well researched and planned out. The entire series has been enjoyable to me, audio as well as the ebook, but then I read, or listen, for the content of the story. As a past teacher, I don't allow myself to miss out on the actual story by looking for or dwelling on things I may think should have been done differently. I'm not a writer or narrator so commend those who are!

I enjoy the time travel books. I look for new ones all the time. Ferguson is a good male narrator but he really has a hard time with female voices. I can not get into the female parts. He gives them a different attitude then I feel they should have. Other than that good book. I may just have to read this one.
