I really liked the story. It took me about a quarter of the book to get really interested in it. it was adventurous exciting uplifting but at the same time really sad because you realize after over 200 years the fight hasn't changed just the means of it has. and I also really enjoyed the author's note at the end of the book, I had a hunch that some of these characters might be a real and they were so now i have a few more characters to read about. all in all it's an easy Four Star and really worth reading. as far as historical fiction goes this would be on my top 10. the narration was really a plus it made it really easy to listen to the book and enjoy the story , not too emotional or too emotionless just the right amount of emotion in her tone. it was a very masterful and Pleasant narration.
