"MASTER AND COMMANDER fans will love CALL OF THE SEA for the authentic early nineteenth century seafaring details and the thundering battle scenes. I loved it for the way the characters ---- merchants, sailors, historical giants, warriors and lovers -- embody their times with every breath, word, and emotion. It's a great vision of the men and women whose sweat and inspiration gave birth to the U.S. Navy nearly 200 years ago."
