Publisher's Summary

American scientist Matt Miller has been torn from his own century and dumped into colonial Virginia with only his backpack and his wits. He has come to terms with where he is and when and has surrounded himself with new friends but has also made an enemy who has sworn his destruction. 

Matt now leaves Virginia to make his fortune in Philadelphia, with the hope of returning and claiming the hand of the woman he loves. It seems predestined that he has been dropped into this new century to succeed on a grand scale. He soon finds that a sworn enemy in colonial America is no small thing.

Love this series

As a US History major, I always am distracted by glaring inconsistencies in historical fiction. Rose did a great job keeping an authentic grounding while working in a great time travel story. Of course he had to take a few liberties but any scenario could be plausible when transporting back to the 1770’s. Thanks for a fun journey.

A compelling sequel

I was happy to have the second audio book available so soon after completing the first. The author paints another compelling storyline following Matt Miller as he establishes himself as a man worthy of a woman’s love. I’m looking forward to the next chapter of this journey and hope that the wait for the third book is as equally short as it was for the second.

Wonderful! Even Better Thank Book One!

After finishing Matt Miller in the Colonies, Book 1 last week, I couldn't wait to learn the 'rest of the story.' I consumed Book 2 over the weekend and loved every second of the audio book.

The introduction of Benjamin Franklin into the plot was surprising and effective. And the continued development of the lives of other time travelers opens up many possibilities for Book 3.

Congratulations to Mark for another outstanding story. I'll be among the first listeners to the next installment. And, based on Franklin's letter at the end of the book, things are getting very interesting in England!

Could not stop listening

Mark Rose accomplished a feat not many authors can do well- he made the subject of Chemistry and commerce in colonial America so fascinating that readers may actually want to time travel to this time and befriend Matt Miller so they can partake in these activities too! This book causes the reader to see historical and notable figures from a different, and sometimes humorous, perspective. Rose subtly captures the spirit and essence of several notable individuals without it being obvious. I found myself walking away from
this book see not only several famous figures in a different light, but thinking about colonial America differently. Finally, I cannot say I have read a book where I have rooted for a protagonist more than in this one.

Good story.

I love this time period. I became enthralled. I live in Tennessee about 80 miles from the first scene of this book. That caught my eye and I'm glad it did. I have both books, ready for the next one.

Interesting at times

I was a little unsure on how to rate this. While at times interesting and amusing, The constant Christian propaganda distracts from more interesting storylines.

Great story bad narration fixed - play @ x0.9

Really enjoyed the book but the narator is way too fast. Play at 0.9 to make it better.

Once past the narration the story was again a good mix of history and characters. Great read

Unprofessional at a lot of levels

Ok author, if you're going to cheap out on a audiobook narrator and read it yourself, then don't write characters with accents you can't do.

Everyone in the book has the same voice. Scottish men, American woman, and everything In-between is the same voice.

This isn't a read along with gramgram at the library. The level of unprofessionalism is quite galling.

I hear in the next book he cuts his own voice over his own voice to sing sea shanties. How terrible. hard pass on this series from a purely production quality standard.

Onto the story.

The sudden time skips make the story not worth it. sudden 4 month time skip in the beginning and a 5 year time skip at the end. The conflict resolution in this story is always anticlimactic, and sort of serves its conclusions limply and almost begrudgingly. Chapters of build up to a literary fart of a conclusion.

In all ways a lazier, holier, and lamer version of Olan Thorensons series.
