Praise for Nick of Time

"This is the first historical novel my 10-year-old son has taken to, and its in large part thanks to the reading of John Sea, whose rich voice gives a sense of grand adventure while maintaining the proper square-jawed demeanor for the British gentleman-in-training." - Sonja Bolle, Los Angeles Times
 
"John Shea really knows how to wring the last ounce of starry-eyed wonder and excitement out of a story.... Shea manages to sound like 12-year-old Nick, and, when necessary, his 6-year-old sister, Kate. Bell is a gifted writer, and Shea brings his varied characters to life." - AudioFile, Earphones Award Winner
