Publisher's Summary

American scientist Matt Miller is torn from his own century and dropped into Colonial America with nothing except a backpack. His phone, his money, and his identity are all useless and he quickly finds that he is foreign and alone in his own country. 

Matt must meet the challenge to survive in a newly forming society where he seemingly has no relevant skills and no one he can count on. He suspects that his 21st century knowledge of science and technology could make him a king in the New World, but he quickly finds that 18th-century America is a dynamic place where nothing is guaranteed. 

The challenge to prosper, succeed and especially to win the hand of a beautiful Virginia farm girl is like nothing he has ever faced.

I usually cringe when I see that the author is also the narrator...

But in this case Mark J. Rose did an admirable job. I enjoyed the characters and the story. His narration felt effortless, which is how good narration should be. I just realized there’s a book 2 so I’m getting ready to buy it.
ps: I highly recommend this book!

GREAT READ.....Please Write More!

Wow. This was an outstanding listen. Congrats to Mark for a very interesting time travel adventure. Having had to survive a number of ill-advised author narrations through the years, I was impressed with Mark's performance.

I've just started "Book Two" and am hopeful that this author gets busy on some additional Matt Miller adventures.

kept my interest

it's an interesting storyline, getting book 2 if available. a professional reader would do it more justice but all in all pretty good.

Couldn't stop listening...

I'm more familiar with the author's award winning script writing but found his portrayal of a scientist flung back to the mid 1700s after a freak accident to be a compelling story that I couldn't put down. The story was a bit slow to start but after the first chapter or two the journey that lead character embarks upon pulled me into the moment. I'm looking forward the next book so I can continue the journey with Matt Miller.

Narration needs a lot of work

The story was standard and honestly, I felt it leaned too much on the mc’s knowledge being just what he needed, also characters needed more depth. The worse part, however, was the pronunciation of certain words, idk I just couldn't do it. There was no vocal variation for the characters, not at all, a good narrator makes you forget it is only one person you are listening to.

The author puts a lot of life into the characters and I can't wait for the second book to be available!

So-so

I should’ve been alerted when I noticed that Mr. Rose read his own story. Unfortunately the author is not a very good actor for voicing different roles. His disjointed reading style simply detracted from what was only a so-so story. I won’t be listening to other books in this series.

nonsense

I'll try and not be too harsh. This book makes no sense though. And the narrator (author) while not terrible is definitely not good. The MC seems to be a creationist yet claims to be a man of science. I am only half way through so when it's over I'll change my score if I see jmprovement.

Great story

I really enjoyed this story it captured my imagination. The only part I found a difficult was the narration. Sorry Mark but I thought it could have been done better.
