Narrator Mark Turetsky manages this juggling act with aplomb. Among the characters he portrays are a dignified President Lincoln giving the Gettysburg Address; Lincoln's son, Tad, who is anything but an ordinary kid; the story's narrator, who switches from third person to direct comments to the listener; and each member of the Flashback Four. These hand-selected 12-year-olds time travel to November 1863 with the express task of photographing Lincoln while he gives his 237-word speech. Turetsky's characterizations of the four teens are spot-on. He gives voice to take-charge David, humble Luke, holier-than-thou Julia, and Isabel--ever the optimist. Listeners will come away with a greater understanding of the circumstances and personalities involved in this famous moment of the Civil War.
