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.

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!

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.

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.

Still good! Nervous about book 3

First, let me say that this series deserves a professional narrator. It is read by the author and the difference between him and a professional is glaring.

So I wrote a review of book 1 (before listening to book 2) saying how I loved the "slice of life" pacing and the more practical aspects to just surviving and making a living in the 1760s. I said how much I enjoyed the fact that it didn't fall into tropes like meeting famous people like Ben Franklin (I actually mentioned his name) and didn't try to go off in an alternate history direction like Eric Flints 1632 series.

So that held for the first half of this book. And I continued to enjoy it! Like really enjoy it! If you liked the first book, and the first half of this one, may I also take the time to recommend the Japanese tv series "JIN" (or it's Korean remake I suppose).

But then, the MC meets (minor spoiler) Ben Franklin (*hah*) and he becomes a minor character. But at first, it wasn't as cliche as I thought it might be, but then towards the end of the book the setup for book 3 beings. Textbooks from 2016 are lost (literally an Eric Flint 1632 plot point), someone in the UK is trying to change history! (sigh). Ben Franklin (and this other fellow in the UK) might succeed and get the Parliament to reform further and let American Colonists vote their own MPs into Parliament! Of course, if the MC thought for like 3 seconds, he would realize that this would be a great outcome! For one, It would avoid several wars, including the Civil War (since slavery would be abolished 30 years earlier in 1833).

Secondly, the British had better relations with the American Indians so there would be less wholesale slaughter of them.

But the MC can't think past USA USA USA. So I think we are doomed to seeing the MC playing time cop in book 3. I hope not. I really liked book 1 and most of book 2....

The wooden performance brings it all down.

The narrator is wooden and most characters sound the same in dialogue and voice. Most annoying is the way he makes all voices snarky and sarcastic sounding even in situations that dont warrant it.

The book is redeemed by some interesting plot twists and the love story is believable and compelling.
