Historical Fiction • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

The general of the audiobook title is Grant; Julia is his wife. Gibson Frazier delivers a solid performance of this historical novel. His voice is appealing and plainspoken. His pace is reasonable, with appropriate pauses and subtle character voices that are effective in dialogue. Indeed, there is little to find fault with when it comes to Frazier's narrative skill. The novel, however, moves between different time periods with leaps that are tough for the listener to navigate. One minute, the General and Julia are courting, and the next Grant is in his last days, struggling to complete his memoir as his health fails. While the chapters offer dates to denote time periods, the storyline is still a challenge to follow in the audiobook format. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2024]
