This fictional novel illuminates the life of Sir Walter Raleigh as told by himself via a series of letters to his son from aboard the Destiny. Of interest, though I'd much prefer to explore such a fascinating historical figure through his own true personal letters and accounts from the day in which he lived. I need not have the language of his life modernized, rather I enjoy a distant voice.
Sir Walter Raleigh writing letters to his son - wasn't working for me. Or maybe I'm distracted by other books I'm more excited to read. I gave up after 30 pgs.
