American teenager and history buff Henry Carter is touring France when he falls through a time portal. The next thing he knows he finds himself in sixteenth-century Amboisewith Leonardo da Vinci as his neighbor. Talmadge Ragan narrates smoothly, but her delivery lacks intensity. Her strength is her consistent use of accents and a variety of speech patterns. In particular, her performance perfectly conveys the French accents and Gallic personalities of Henry's new family, the Bonaventures. Through Henry, listeners will learn about the period and the work of da Vinci, as well as his compassion and gentle spirit. This coming-of-age story is a perfect vehicle with which to discover the history and art of the Renaissance. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
