In the most ambitious one-volume American history in decades, award-winning historian Jill Lepore offers a magisterial account of the origins and rise of a divided nation. In riveting prose, These Truths tells the story of America, beginning in 1492, to ask whether the course of events has proven the nation's founding truths or belied them.

The content was fine but I wish Jill hadn’t done the narration herself.
The reading was too fast and uneven. Was struggling to stay with it but when I heard the sound of pages turning I just couldn’t listen anymore.
Was like being back in school with members of class taking turns to read a textbook.
