Commuting on a train is a great time to get a lot of reading done. For The Truelove, I have the MBTA (Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority) to thank. The Truelove is book 15 in the Aubrey-Maturin series by Patrick O’Brian.
Most striking about this book was having a woman character on board, an Australian convict stowaway who marries one of the junior officers. O’Brian doesn’t explore this character in real depth, but in what are so often all-male environments, any female presence is notable.
