    "Wonderful way to retell history. Very enjoyable"
    What did you love best about Chesapeake 1880?

    The combination of the reality of the true news stories with the fictional accounts provided by the author's imagination that has been fuelled by his research of the time in history.was


    What other book might you compare Chesapeake 1880 to and why?

    Obviously, the first book in the series comes to mind. Chesapeake 1880 continues in the style of Chesapeake 1850 as this is the next 30 years in the timeline.


    Which character – as performed by Paul J. McSorley – was your favorite?

    Daniel and Sean are definitely favourites as they seek out their place in this new world that they have come to.


    Any additional comments?

    Easy listening and a very way to learn about an interesting time.. The afternoon really went by quickly while this book was on.

    "Chesapeake 1880"

    I enjoyed the book having spent time on the Chesapeake as a youngster. The voices of the reader help with the feel of the words read. Also, you might want to read , Chesapeake 1850.

    "Place names mispronounced!"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Paul J. McSorley’s performances?

    Learn how to correctly pronounce place names and other words, such as, Anne Arundel, Magothy, Gaithersburg, Aquia. Very annoying to someone from the area to hear the names butchered.
