So many things happen for Maturin in this book. But all ends well. There is said to be a great squadron battle in the book but as usual i mostly ignored the part the describes how the squadron so successfully captured so many slave schooners. Not that I don’t care about slaves. It is heartbreaking to read about it, such a dark chapter in history to think of humans can do such things to their fellow beings. My heart is totally with Maturin’s daughter, the seemingly autistic child, who opens up her blossom in time for us to rest our worries for Maturin🙂 The ending is like, Gone with the Wind. A great love story, still unfolding.
