Plot Summary

Hornblower captures the French vessel, Le Reve, and is asked by Pellew to sail her back to England so that she can be outfitted for the English navy, and also, as a favor, to convey the unusual Duchess of Wharfedale back home. Unfortunately, Le Reve, Hornblower, the duchess and the crew are captured by the Spanish and imprisoned. There, Horatio finds Kennedy, wasted and hopeless from months in solitary. Against the odds, Horatio must find a way to escape with Kennedy, against Hunter's protests, and with the growing suspicion that the duchess may not be who she appears. Written by Kathy Li

Trivia As Hornblower's ruse is in play and its crew is wondering the intentions of the Spanish, one line of dialogue makes clear the ruse did not work, as one of the officer of the Spanish ships says, translated: "Signal the admiral. Say we are about to open fire on English pirates". See more »

Quotes [Knowing that his ship has only four guns]
Hornblower: How many guns does the "Oriental" have, Mr. Hunter.
M'Man Hunter: Forty-eight, sir.
Hornblower: Well, we'll certainly give them a run for their money, won't we Mr. Styles?
Styles: Certainly will sir. Take them at least a minute to sink us.
