In the Land of Whispers Trilogy
George Minkoff is one of the bravest men alive. He has gambled that a three-part epic novel about 17th century Colonial America — written in a language that mimics the speech of the time — can hold the interest of 21st century readers and bring satisfactions and delights as a work of contemporary fiction. Remarkably enough, he has won his bet.
— Paul Auster
In the Land of Whispers is one of the more ambitious works of historical fiction to appear in recent years. Minkoff's brilliant trilogy chronicles the founding of the first successful English colony in the New World at Jamestown, Virginia, in 1607.

"Minkoff has created a unique world that kids will surely appreciate. The whimsical fantasy realm he has created, combined with its superb narration by AudioFile Earphones Award-winner Alison Larkin, gives off a nostalgic feeling - making it enjoyable for adults, too. The pacing, individual accents for each character, and Larkin’s intonation are absolutely marvelous!”
