This Ken Follett work examines the struggles of both the rich and poor as they seek their own versions of "freedom," beginning in Scotland, then moving to London, and finally to Virginia. Set in the late eighteenth century, A Place Called Freedom is filled with historical information but comes up short on plot and delivers a predictable ending. However, Sean Barrett picks up the slack with a marvelous presentation. His smooth, flowing delivery is storytelling at its best, complete with dozens of different vocal characterizations and dialects. A top-drawer listening experience.
