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.

    " Being a Ken Follett fan and having enjoys many of his "series" I was looking forward to reading this one. I was excited to get his outlook on pre-revolutionary America. In the end it was a good read, but for me and my taste, it was to short. Some of that comes from how I would like more of a good thing and some from I would have liked more "depth" to the story, time and characters. I have reread many of Ken Follet books and I am glad to have read this one, I don't think it would stand up to a reread... "
