Anderson’s award-winning earlier work, CHAINS, introduced Isabel and Curzon, slaves who crave independence as the Colonies struggle to break from England. FORGE, the second in her Seeds of America trilogy, focuses on Curzon as he joins the Patriots to fight for independence. Narrator Tim Cain brings history alive with his performance. Through Curzon’s diary entries, he tells of the bloody battle at Saratoga and the desperate conditions at Valley Forge during the bitter winter of 1777-1778. Historical context is established with chapter heads that quote historical documents. Thoughtful listeners will see how our nation still struggles to expand the narrow definition of freedom the Patriots used. The audiobook lacks one feature of the print version: the extensive appendix, which clarifies details and separates historical fact from fiction.
