When veteran reader John McDonough dives into THE HORNET'S NEST, the listener feels right at home. His gravelly voice has a familiar ring to it. And you say to yourself, "I've heard this guy many times." So as McDonough narrates this first novel ever from a U.S. president--a story of the Revolutionary War from a Southern perspective--you dive right in. The story revolves around the characters of a Georgia militia leader, a British spy, and a farmer who is sucked into the war when his family members are killed and he's mistreated by British sympathizers. There's an abundance of historically researched facts and an equal amount of fiction. And there are plenty of battle scenes, which are when McDonough is at his best. A.L.H.
