Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Ioan Gruffudd returns for a third tour of duty as C. S. Forester's naval hero Horatio Hornblower in a pair of movies produced in 2002 and aired in the U.S. on cable's A&E network in 2003. The first telefilm, "Loyalty," finds a peacetime 1807 Hornblower forced to make a living at the gaming tables and caught up in a budding romance with his landlady's daughter, Maria Ab-Fab's Saffron, Julia Sawalha. Admiral Pellew Robert Lindsay rescues Hornblower from the conventions of land-bound life, giving him command of the Hotspur and sending him on a reconnaissance mission that uncovers French perfidy, leading to renewed war. Complications arise when our resourceful hero is betrayed and temporarily imprisoned. Hornblower and the lovely Maria finally get to tie the knot at the start of "Duty" -- although Admiral Pellew's inevitable invocation of the titular responsibility sends Hornblower off in search of his old mate Bracegirdle Jonathan Coy, whose sloop Grasshopper has gone missing under mysterious circumstances. The mystery thickens when Hornblower rescues two suspicious strangers off the coast of France and finds himself sailing headlong into treacherous waters.
