This story has excellent character development , flow , and intrigue. It is my hope that the author plans to do a second story in which Christopher, ..Show More »Tom and even some of the secondary characters like Tom's sisters and Sally would be seen growing up. The historic pieces, the fundamental chemistry segments and puzzles described as the story develops add an element of participation to the overall story which helps the reader to see things from the perspective of a 12 year old of the 17th century. The performance by the reader was outstanding! I highly recommend this story for any age.
