Sankovitch's history of the beginnings of the American Revolution focuses on the Adams, Quincy, and Hancock families, even fictionalizing their thoughts. Suzie Althens narrates in an intimate tone befitting the author's close look at the family members. But her narration takes getting used to. For the most part, her delivery is clear and has a good level of expression and variation, as well as appropriate emphasis and phrasing. But her volume is so soft that it's almost a whisper. At first, one thinks she's delivering a series of asides, and one keeps waiting for a normal tone and volume. Still, despite the softness and occasional awkward phrasing, this is a capable rendition of a detailed look at the period. W.M. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2020]
