At Drake's Command
By David Wesley Hill
Read April 1, 2013
One of my favorite historical characters was Sir Francis Drake. David Wesley Hill, in his book At Drake’s Command, has captured the spirit of adventure to sail under Drake’s command at sea. This is an excellent historical fiction with plenty of action and adventure.
The storyline is based loosely on the actual records of Drake’s voyages and this adds to the realism of the story. The story is well defined and easy to follow. The various twist and turns in story make the adventure more exciting. I found it very easy to put myself in the story as an unseen extra.
Our hero in the story is fictitious but it makes it easier to identify with him. David Wesley Hill did an excellent job of character development with each character. They each seemed real and it was easy to follow and identify with them. Their emotions and moral character came through.
I really enjoyed At Drake’s Command by David Wesley Hill. I highly recommend this book to all readers.
