Monday Book Recommendation – Master and Commander

Master & Commander cover.jpg
Author: Patrick O’Brian

Synopsis: 1800s. Britain’s Nelson leads Navy against Napoleon’s France. Captain Jack Aubrey, newly promoted to old, slow HMS Sophie, is a brave and gifted seaman, his thirst for adventure and victory immense. Aided by friend and skilled ship surgeon Stephen Maturin, Aubrey and crew win clashes, finally hopelessly outmatched by a mighty Spanish frigate.

Review:  This year our focus is on Persuasion so for our Reading Group we thought it would be a good pick to read a book about the Royal Navy during this time period.
