Larger-than-life characters, and an epic plot brimming with the energy of his internationally-acclaimed thrillers make Ken Follett's A Place Called Freedom an experience not to be missed. This lush novel-set in 1766 England and America-evokes an era ripe with riot and revolution from the teeming streets of London to the sprawling grounds of a Virginia plantation. Mack McAsh burns with the desire to escape his life of slavery in Scottish coal mines, while Lizzie Hallim is desperate to shed a life of sheltered subjugation to her spineless husband. United in America, their only chance for freedom lies beyond the western frontier-if they're brave enough to take it. Spanning two continents and bringing together an unforgettable cast of heroes, villains, and rebels, A Place Called Freedom is a magnificent epic of love, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Narrator Simon Prebble's masterful use of voice and pacing captures a vivid cast of characters, and the powerful destiny that shapes their lives.

"Mack McAsh is a young Scottish coal miner longing for freedom. His life converges with highborn Lizzie Hallim's as they travel to the Colonies on separate missions. Ken Follett has penned an enthralling historical novel, which narrator Simon Prebble delivers with entertaining gusto. He changes characters in a natural and flowing manner, nourishing the continuity of the novel. His English accent complements a storyline filled with politics, love and travel. This audiobook is intriguing from the onset, inviting the listener on a trek through England and America of the 1700's. B.J.L. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
