I felt things moved a bit more slowly in this book with only a couple of storylines that meant Hornblower had to act in haste. Have to admit I get a bit sick of Hornblower telling himself off for spending time with or thinking of Maria and his children or feeling that they're diverting him from his duty - especially considering that Maria has to put up with him leaving without any notice whilst bringing up their kids on her own and doesn't actually seem to moan about it much!

This book is, again, one in which you want to know what happens next. And I'm soon be on to the next in the series...
