This is a fictional account of a spy for England in Philadelphia during the days leading up to the Constitution being ratified.It dealt a lot with the slavery issue.It was good.I liked Alexander Parrish reading but some of his narration could use some work.I was provided this book free by the publisher, author or narrator for a honest review.

Fun informative story

This was an entertainment jaunt through the Philadelphia of the Constitutional Convention. Not exactly a cliffhanger but a little bit of suspense about the heart posture of the main character.

The narration was great and engaging. If you like this story and you want some more, you could check out "James Madison and the Struggle for the Bill of Rights".

I'm excited to read some of her other titles

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review
