    This book is presented as the sequel to Afloat and Ashore A Sea Tale, although in reality it is the same book divided in two As prolific a writer as James Feni Cooper is, you will have to suspend belief to buy the storyline in this volume.If you read Afloat and Ashore, this volume picks up where Miles is thrashing in the water with Lucy s apparent lover Grace is going downhill fast, and this bit of drama isn t doing her any good at all What the hell was wrong with her anyway Clearly, sh This book is presented as the sequel to Afloat and Ashore A Sea Tale, although in reality it is the same book divided in two As prolific a writer as James Feni Cooper is, you will have to suspend belief to buy the storyline in this volume.If you read Afloat and Ashore, this volume picks up where Miles is thrashing in the water with Lucy s apparent lover Grace is going downhill fast, and this bit of drama isn t doing her any good at all What the hell was wrong with her anyway Clearly, she had some other kind of medical issue that the ignorance of the day were unable to diagnose Let s blame it on Rupert. I have never seen or heard of that kind of a reaction to a broken heart. Grace seemed like either a macabre drama queen or she had something else wrong We ll never know As for the theory of divine providence, while they were cruising down the river screwing up Grace s ostensible rehab vacation, they just happened to stop at a quaint little cottage along the banks You will have to suspend belief to buy who the occupant of the property was A ridiculously forthcoming occupant, considering two strangers came barreling into her house unannounced and uninvited It all worked out though It sure did To make an argument that this volume was perhaps longer than it needed to be, Cooper covers the subject of death much differently than in the last Of course, we view the decline of a family member much differently, but since none of us are immune from it, it should remain private Unfortunately for the reader, this bit of tragedy was not We all go through it, and it was distressing to read about the pain, page after page in melodramatic style It was a relief to get past that part of the book Eventually, Miles wants to get away from Clawbonny, and clear his head, and find some semblance of continuity, for his life continued Down by the docks, he was getting his ship ready to sail, and stopped in at a diner for lunch You will have to suspend belief that Miles was in New York and having lunch when Rupert, Lucy s beau and another guy took a booth next to him and had an animated conversation mostly about his sister and him what are the odds Eventually, he gets back to sea Again the confounding nautical terms made chunks of this book hard to follow I knew what was happening, but had no idea what they were doing in response Sail over here, spanker there, mizzen this, jib thatBut the story, as ludicrous as it was, didn t have holes in it, and I give Jimmy props for that Cooper has a pleasing writing style, although his interjections of societal ills and my ignorance of nautical terminology became a bit tiresome As for the nautical bit, I m not inclined to take a course in 19th century sailing just to read a book, although if I were to be a sailing man myself, might be well worth the time Ahh, but if I wereMiles never finished his education, and Marble, although a very adept seaman, had little, if any formal education As a result, we are ostensibly dealing with men who may not have been the sleekest vessels on the sea, their apparent dispensation with common sense a telling factor What kind of career choice is that which had a very good chance of failure even death, and in Miles case, the chance of financial ruin Had he not screwed things up enough already And as for Marble, it s just pure luck that nobody had shut his mouth for him years before You will have to suspend belief that after the Dawn was wrecked, and Marble and Neb feared lost, that they just happened toWhat are the odds Cooper can write, no doubt about it, so I give the book three stars for that The storyline however, cost two stars Five star writing minus two stars for the storyline and I won t say they lived happily ever after, but as well as can be expected would probably beaccurate, which in Miles case, not that bad It nearly lost another star for the racism thing and I know, that s how it was in the early 1800 s, but we as a society are so far away from that now, that it is a tough read to have it so matter of factly laid out the Cooper did That said, if you like Cooper s writing style, you ll like the book
