Ship of the Line

by C. S. Forester

A cliffhanger? He ends the book on a cliffhanger?? Arrrgghhh! Anyway, Ship of the Line is the sequel to Beat to Quarters. Captain Hornblower has returned from his assignment in the Pacific Ocean and is assigned to the the HMS Sutherland, a ship of the line in Admiral Leighton's squadron. After his many months alone in the Pacific, Hornblower chafes a bit at being part of a squadron under the Admiral's direct orders. But Hornblower still finds opportunities for adventure, striking blow after blow to Napoleon's war effort.

And then there's the cliffhanger. sigh. I was stretching these books out, letting months go between volumes. Now I'll be lucky to wait a few weeks before visiting the bookstore.

It's on my shelf!
