By Singing Light

The Midshipman Quinn Collection - Showell Styles These are delightful! They’d be perfect for the kid who’s going to love Hornblower in a few years but hasn’t quite gotten there yet. With my Hornblower/Aubrey trained sensibilities, it was hard not to notice all the things that never would have happened, but that’s okay. They’re really just fun romps through the Napoleonic Wars, though the last one turns unexpectedly serious.
