I have been a fan of Edward Rutherfurd's work for a long time and was excited to hear about a novel set in America and more specifically, set in New York. Rutherfurd does an amazing job as both a storyteller and historian. As a New Yorker, this novel embodied the spirit and determination of the different families and vast experiences of the American "melting pot." The choice to represent so many cultures and their respective experiences gave a wonderful perspective. The narrator did a very good job as well. My only complaint was his pronunciation of "the Reverend George Whitefield" which in actuality was pronounced as "Whit-field" not "White-field." This book would be a great choice to be incorporated into a high school Social Studies curriculum as well. Highly recommend this book.
