The Lost Constitution | [William Martin]

The Lost Constitution

Peter and Evangeline have learned of an early, annotated draft of the Constitution that could forever change America's history - and its future. When word gets out about it, it launches a frenzied search, as both sides of the partisan machine. While battling politicians from both sides of the debate, Peter and Evangeline must get to the document first, because they know that if the wrong people find it, they will burn it, stripping the nation of its constitutional moorings.

Publisher's Summary

Rare-book expert Peter Fallon and his girlfriend, Evangeline, the main characters from Back Bay and Harvard Yard, are back for another treasure hunt through time. They have learned of an early, annotated draft of the Constitution, stolen and smuggled out of Philadelphia. The draft's marginal notes spell out, in shocking detail, the Founders' unequivocal intentions - the unmistakable meaning of the Bill of Rights. Peddled and purloined, trafficked and concealed for over two centuries, the lost Constitution could forever change America's history - and its future.

Moreover, Congress is already at war, fighting tooth and claw over the eternally contentious Bill of Rights. When word gets out of the lost draft's existence, it launches a frenzied search, as both sides of the partisan machine believe it will reinforce their arguments. While battling politicians from both sides of the debate, Peter and Evangeline must get to the document first, because they know that if the wrong people find it, they will burn it, stripping the nation of its constitutional moorings.

The search takes Peter and Evangeline into the rich history of America and New England, from Shays's Rebellion to the birth of the American industrial revolution to the march of the legendary 20th Maine in the Civil War.

Past and present play off one another as the search for the draft heats up. It finally boils over on the first night of the World Series, at that Mecca of New England, Boston's fabled Fenway Park, and the truth is finally revealed....

    "Great Story - About 7 hours too long."

    This is an interesting book in many ways. If you like history - and I mean full, unedited hitory then this book is for you. It has an ineresting premise that is dragged on for hours and hours going through seemingly every year starting from the founding fathers to today. I kept asking myself - what is the big deal about the lost constitution? It's a rough draft, but the characters seemed to think it would change everything we know about history.

    I really wanted to like this book and I do to a point, but it became my life's goal just to finish the book after getting to part three. The last hour/hour and a half is very good, which was a bonus.

    I understand what the author tried to do, however it just didn't work for me due to the time commitment I had to put into it.

    Bottom Line: Too many characters that get all smashed together. Too many generations to go through. Too many hours for this book. Godo attempt by William Martin, but just too much of a book.
