From AudioFile

[Editor's note: The following is a combined review with SONG IN A STRANGE LAND.]--The first two books in the Liberty Bell series recount the history of two virtuous orphans forced into the harsh streets of London. After their father's death, Daniel and Linna Bradford's mother struggles to hold the family together until she succumbs to illness. Her last words to her children are to believe in Jesus as their salvation, according to John 3:16, and to seek God's will. They are accidentally separated for more than twenty years until they are joyfully reunited and learn that each has kept the faith and led a Christian life. Wayne Shepherd reads this smooth abridgment with a bright, friendly voice. He handles frequent, lengthy physical descriptions of characters without appearing to take a breath. However, his upbeat voice doesn't adjust when the material is tragic, failing to convey appropriate empathy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful! Nov. 11 1999
There is a huge market for books like this, & Morris is very popular, so maybe I'm in the minority, but I thought this book was dreadful. The writing style is corny, the characters are cardboard stereotypes. The portrayal of the Hanoverian monarchs, George II & George III, is wildly inaccurate & unfair. They are portrayed as physically ugly & morally evil. How ridiculous! Morris has repeated every canard ever mentioned about G.III without bothering to do any research to see if they are accurate. George III was a Christian monarch, a man with high moral standards, who did the best he could for his nation, & in any event had no power to do anything to the American colonies. To say that "the angels wept" when he became king is totally silly. Come to think of it, this entire book was silly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but not the worst Nov. 20 2001
I wasn't too sure about this book at first, but the book overcame my doubts. I found the characters of Daniel & Lyna well written and personable. Even Marian and Leo were well written. Leo is written so dispicable that you want to just slap him around a few times. I like how historical people and facts are written into the book, but I agree with another reviewer that some of the descriptions of George 2 & 3 are just plain wrong. The phrase "the angels of England wept when George 3 ascended the throne" doesn't fit the book or the situation.
However, I do think the author did a good job in portraying how the war in the colonies pitted families against friends and split families between Tory and Colonist.
I would recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inccredible I never read a book that fast. Aug. 5 1999
By A Customer
It was so good. I practically read it in one sitting. I have read the Liberty Bell and this book, Sound the Trumpet they both blew me away. I loved it. They had a little of everything that I like in a book, Romance, Action, Mystery, Drama. I recomend this book to all readers it inspired me to read more of his books. Good job Morris it was great. I couldn't put it down and I know if you read it, you wouldn't be able to set it down either. Don't hesitate it is well worth the money. And if you don't have the money get it from your local library it is excellant. Gilbert has an inspiring gift at writing books, I feel as though the characters are close friends. That I know them. Read the series it is awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Dec 21 1998
By A Customer
I could not put this book down. It held my interest all the way through. I read the first two books in this series in less than a week! { about 350 pages a book} It also has some historical fiction in it; though you don't really notice it. It takes place during the Revolutionary War, but the main characters are activelyinvolved with people like George Washington, Paul Revere, Samuel Adams etc... Very well written, very good plot -- excellent book!

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Morris book! July 2 1999
By A Customer
I read this book in one sitting, and stayed up half the night. I suggest it to anyone who likes romantic historical fiction. My favorite part is when Lyna disguises herself as a man. Of all the books in the series this was my favorite! I would also suggest Sally Laity's Revolutionary series if you like this era.
