In the ninth instalment of the series, C.S. Forester transports us to the quaint village of Smallbridge. Predictably restless and eager to embark on his next adventure, Horatio Hornblower dreams of returning to the seas and commanding his next ship. Now happily married to Lady Barbara Leighton and widely celebrated for his recent successes with the navy, Hornblower has been knighted and appointed a commodore. Fortunately for Horatio, his uneventful days as village squire are soon interrupted.

Any additional comments?

Don't believe the other reviewers who talk about the last chapter being missing. I bought this audiobook in March 2015 and all the chapters are present. The last words in both the audiobook and the printed edition is at the end of chapter XXIII: "What the devil was Brown doing, staring at him like this?" Perhaps the last chapter was missing in a previous edition of this audiobook. If so, the problem has since been corrected. I almost didn't buy the book based on their comments.
