I am a history buff and I loved this book and the history of New York City that it clarified. It was truly fascinating. I wish I had known this stuff while I was growing up in Manhattan. Still it was enlightening to learn about the early Dutch settlement and I would highly recommend this book to any fellow history buff. The author tells the story of NYC's early beginnings in such a way that you are sucked into it before you know it. Definitely worth a second listen.
A Great Read
I really liked the story line, The author did a great job of capturing my attenion from the beginning and kept me hooked all the way thru.
The heroines past and present! Rosayln Landor did a fantastic job all the way thru the book - there were some really difficult dialects, etc and she did a great job. Her narration really caught me as well as the story line.
The combination of present and past in the two female characters really made for a great storyline.
I looked at this book because of it being similar to Diana Gabaldon according to the blurp - but the real reason I read it was because of the comments. Half the reviews were positive of both the author and the narrator and half the reviews were negative. So that intrigued me. I stand firmly on the positive side of both the author/storyline and the narrator!!!
