    Summary

    A year ago on the deck of the Daring, Admiral Lord Hornblower sacrificed his honour, and with it, all that he held dear in the world. Half-mad with grief, he retreated to a deserted West Indies islet, where he hopes to meet a merciful end -- by thirst, shark, or hurricane, he cares not which.

    Captain William Bush, however, is not made to allow a friend to suffer alone.

    Summary

    Summary

    “Commodore Horatio Hornblower, Captain William Bush, may I present to you our ship’s surgeon and my dearest friend, Doctor Stephen Maturin.” Jack is brightly gleaming once more, delighted to have such esteemed guests visiting with news of foreign shores. He waits impatiently for the murmured introductions, and doesn’t miss the way Stephen shakes Bush’s hand first, very carefully and gently, and nobody misses the way Stephen’s fingers crook even worse than Bush.
    “This is our man Styles,” Commodore Hornblower introduces the fellow. Styles touches his cap respectfully and ignores the fiery warning in Captain Bush’s glare.
    Killick grumbles in the cabin loud enough to earn a quirked eyebrow from Captain Bush. “An’ it’s the Doctor shouldn’t be out in the cold, ‘e says, an’ keepin’ ‘im out there an’ all.”

    Summary

    Barbara was longing and frustration and guilt all wrapped up in one elegant, beautiful package. A package that was forever out of his reach, even if Leighton had died of his battle wounds, for Hornblower was acutely aware of another deficiency on his part. It held him back and angered him in doing so, for he knew that, without it, he might love Barbara to such whole destruction that he would either have her and be the most content man in the world, or he might burn himself to ashes in his passions and finally be rid of the torment.
    A knock on the little library door.
    “Enter,” he called, his tone somehow emotionless while his mind wrapped up into itself.
    Bush came stumping in, his hands, too pale and too thin grasping at chair backs and shelves as he heaved himself forward, leaning on his peg leg with determination.
    The trifecta was complete. Up came the lift, up came the brace, up came the inevitable truss that was William Bush. Maria – Barbara – William.
