A good book, but IMO, mostly filler and background. It's a breather from the action, and rounds out the background of the characters with their wives and children.

I'm less than enthusiastic about it, mostly because it's not as action oriented, and it shows that Aubrey, a genius at sea, is all thumbs when he is ashore.

To be honest, it was sort of a downer, but it ends well.

Don't avoid this book, as it plays a role in the series

Triggers: violence is pretty much the only one, with some recreational drug use.
