Publisher Description

“If Jane Austen had written rousing sea yarns, she would have produced something very close to the prose of Patrick O'Brian.” —Time

It’s 1802. The Treaty of Amiens has brought an end to the hostilities between Great Britain and France. Captain Jack Aubrey and his friend, naval surgeon Stephen Maturin, are enjoying the respite in the English countryside, besotted with two beautiful cousins, Sophie Williams and Diana Villiers—until Aubrey loses his fortune and they flee to France to escape his creditors. While in France, Napoleon smashes the Peace of Amiens and war begins anew. Aubrey and Maturin, now finding themselves behind enemy lines, make their way back to England. Maturin is sent to Spain on an intelligence-gathering mission and the now-solvent Aubrey assumes command of a strange warship, pursuing his quarry straight into the mouth of a French-held harbor. Amidst the rollicking adventures at sea and mishaps on land, Aubrey and Maturin’s friendship is tested by their romantic entanglements with the cousins in this brilliant second installment of the epic series.

Post Captain

Reading this series again after twenty years from a chance comment by a friend who had also read it. Now using the online tools makes it more fun and complex, more understandable. Patrick O’Brian is a powerful story teller and hard to put down.

Another amazing story

There is a club established in certain parts of the world for the Spouses of people who have been lost to this author. It is known as "the Patrick O'Brian widows club".

If you have not discovered this author, and you enjoy historic fiction, particularly naval historic fiction, then you are in for the treat of a lifetime.

Enjoy!
