This is the third of the classic "Captain Horatio Hornblower" trilogy. It isa marvelous story, and deepens the familier characters, and intoduces wonderful new characters. The book should have 5 stars, but the inexplicable absence of the other two books of the trilogy for Nook users. Get the books for the Nook now!!!
