I liked this book for the extra dimension it adds to Hornblower’s already interesting life. Now he’s the captain of a ship, if not an actual Captain, with a couple of dangerous missions to do, and he excels in them all, but at the same time he’s got a home life to deal with now as well. Getting married right at the start of the book, even though he’s not sure it’s the right thing to do, Hornblower then has to deal with knowing there’s someone worrying about it at home. I liked the extra tension this brought to the open seas, and I’m keen to see what comes next for our Horry.
