FEVER 1793

by | Read by Emily Bergl

Children Ages 10+ • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

Few today can appreciate the devastation of a flu epidemic that touches everyone, both directly or indirectly. Emily Bergl narrates this historical novel set in the late eighteenth century with enthusiasm. She assumes the persona of 14-year-old Mattie, who faces challenges with an indomitable spirit. Bergl sets a reasonable pace and avoids sounding maudlin even when a seemingly endless series of misfortunes occurs. She maintains a light touch and brings out the optimism and cheeriness of Mattie, as well as the resigned perseverance of many of the important people in her life. While interesting to children of many ages, this could also make history come alive for kids studying the post-Revolutionary War period.
