    A guttersnipe who has risen through the ranks of the British army, Ensign Sharpe is sailing home to England from his latest campaign against Napoleon. Anticipating an uneventful voyage, the dashing young maverick discovers the intriguing and very married Lady Grace Hale on board the Calliope. But just as he wins his way into her heart, the ship is fired upon and, suddenly, he finds himself in the thick of one of history's most spectacular incidents: the Battle of Trafalgar.

    "A good story poorly read"
    Overall

    A good story poorly read! Bernard Cornwells description of the Battle of Trafalgar is excellent. His ability to describe the battle scene and the thoughts of the combatant involved are unequaled. In this book, the 4th in the series, it appeared to me to take too long to get the main battle. There was a lot of filler waiting for something to happen. It may be on purpose as a 3 month sail back home would be quite boring. Once the battle started, Bernard Cornwell was a good as I have read.
    I was very disappointed with Patrick Tull's reading of the book. He sounds like a baptist minister with a British Accent. In many spots of the book, he sounded like he had marbles in his mouth. I lost many words and sometimes thoughts because I found his speach difficult to listen to. It was the only real disappointment in this excellent book.

    A powerful and evocative story of the Civil War's first battle and the men who fought it.

    Dan's Gal Sal says: "Great Historical Fiction"
    "Terrific Character Development"
    Overall

    Cornwell did a fantastic job in character development. However, after reading and listening to the entire Sharpe series, I was disappointed that the battle did not occur until the last 3 hours of the 15 hour novel. Once the battle was initiated, Bernard Cornwell is at his best. I just felt that it took so long to get the actual battle. Perhaps the next three will improve upon this concern.

    "Joe Gibbs relationship with God"
    Overall

    I was excited when I saw Racing to Win as a audiobook and purchased it immediately. I respect Joe and all he has done in Football and Nascar. He has given himself to God and admits it freely and frequently throughout the book. To summarize..All things are possible through God.
    If you are not prepaired to share Joe's relationship with God you are going to be disappointed, if you are, you'll be happy and satisfied. A Norman Vincent Peale approach to Football and Nascar.
