KIRKUS REVIEW

Another panel in the Hornblower saga which will delight the people who followed the fascinating life of this courageous and imaginative officer of the British Navy. His marriage opens the record here and one gets glimpses of his struggle with himself to wear the trappings of the devoted husband. There is superb sea adventure throughout and some of the characters that reappear in later volumes become more rounded. Possibly there is a plethora of derail that only the initiates familiar with rigged vessels will appreciate, but the pace of story carries the landlubber along.
