Excellent!

Disclaimer: our family used to be American Revolutionary War reenactors.
I thought that this was an excellent historical. The idea of a family of today finding a prewar document is possible, and the parallel voicing of today and then is very well done. The characters are interesting and engaging and quite believable. Good for nearly any age.
The choice of narrator is interesting, but as I loved listening to him that says it all.
I requested and received a free review copy.

History Brought to Life!

Where does The Declaration rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I always enjoy a good historical fiction and this one was definitely a fun one. I'll admit that when it started I wasn't sure if I would like it... the narrator's very deep voice (reminiscent of James Earl Jones) was an adjustment for me- didn't fit the initial characters- but as I got deeper into the story it all fit together. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and highly recommend it. The story pops back and forth from current time and the Revolution Era and each is so well developed that you look forward to the switches between them wanting to know how each turns out.

Any additional comments?

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Enjoyable

"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request, via Audiobook Boom, and have voluntarily left this review."
When I first started listening I didn't think I would like the story but as I continued to listen and delve into the Harris story I became more involved with the characters and the story. I liked how the story went back and forth from what was happening now to what happened in the past.
The narrator was very good and kept me listening well into the night so I could get to the end of the story, Good history lesson.
