12/2012 ** I can see why I keep coming back to this historical fiction series that was first published nearly 60 years ago. In this one, I was struck by the personification of a dispatch boat. She seemed to have such personality and devotion to the war correspondent she worked with.
As with other books in this series that I've been re-reading this month though read for the first time about 30 years ago, this was my first acquaintance with the Spanish-American war.
It's always fun to see romance, wealth, princesses, and get a little history lesson at the same time.
