I gave the first book in the series 5 stars, but now that Mr Winston is into his stride I have to be a little more pedantic and dock him one star for constantly rattling out his anchor chain.
The first anchor chain was produced in Pontypridd in 1806.
So an American ship in the War of Independence would have been using a hemp cable. small point but irritating.
The story was another good one, the characters are growing and maturing nicely, and I am buying the next instalment, even if I do still have to listen to the damn anchor chain clanging away.
