Is it possible to use MFW RTR with Mystery of History instead of SOTW?

I really enjoyed the Mystery of History. I used it more as a supplement though, not that MFW needed any supplementing. I'm just a bit of an over achiever in that way I guess, lol! :~ But if you wanted to sub out SOTW, I think that would probably be doable.

Anything is possible, especially for a homeschool parent! My Father's World leaves room for Book Basket, independent reading, and extra read-alouds, so adding more reading (like Dawn did) is do-able :)

I just thought I'd mention a couple things from my very limited experience:

(1) I think you'd need to read two whole volumes of MOH during Rome to the Reformation, each of which is like 500 pages as I recall?
(2) The one year we had a MOH volume was during Creation to the Greeks, and my son strongly preferred reading from the "real Bible" rather than summarized stories provided in the MOH volume we had. I haven't read the two volumes that would apply to RTR, though.
(3) Just a reminder that Marie Hazell adds readings directly from the Bible and from Christian books like Trial and Triumph. She also adds a colorful, visual book like Medeival World to bring stories to life.

Hope that helps as you evaluate your options!
