Summary:

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.

Genres:

  • Ayela Mujeeb

    Not my favorite from Ken Follett. Predictable and not as complex as his other books.

  • Kimberly Mac Donald

    I love all of his books but this one was alittle slow moving. I hope to enjoy more of his books soon.

  • Nancy Krehlik

    This was a quick read compared to some of Follet's other works, but it was enjoyable. The narrator did a wonderful job.

  • Steven Rowe

    Great book. Ken Follett is always a good read and Simon Prebble does an amazing job narrating the book / bring it to life. I would recommend this audio book highly.

  • Stephen Nutt

    Great read, just like all his others! I have read everything I could find written by this author, and all of his books are great.
