Another Audible download that I absolutely LIVED with back and forth to school for a month. As described on Follett's website, the novel "follow(s) the destinies of five interrelated families – one American, one Russian, one German, one English and one Welsh – through the earth-shaking events of the First World War and the Russian Revolution." I couldn't wait to get in the car every day and find out what was going to happen next! Follett has a style that simply places the reader (or listener!) in the middle of the story--you literally "watch" the action unfold around you! The battle scenes were gripping, the fight for women's suffrage in England was inspiring, the love stories were both romantic and realistic. I'm SO thrilled that this is part of a series!!
