The Master's TaleWonderful

I’ve long been a fan of Ann Victoria Roberts and her latest novel was eagerly-awaited. The story is evocative, her characters life-like and the ending full of drama. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I know very little of life at sea, but the story brings Captain Smith’s experiences alive and I’m intrigued to find out more. He is portrayed as a truly honourable man, with a strong sense of responsibility and the closing haunting images have stayed with me…unsettling and wonderful stuff.
