Not as "moral" as some of the other books (meaning I didn't mark as many pages with "that's important") but still great. The whole story is moral and upright in the main.
It had a little twist or variation on the love story format usually found in Marryat—that was fun.
Sorry I can't give you the details, but seriously, sometime you all need to pick up a Marryat.
One thing I did flag:
"If the reader will recall my narrative to his recollection, he must observe, that religion had had hiterto but little of my thoughts. I had lived the life of most who live in this world; perhaps not quite so correct in morals as many people for my code of morality was suited to circumstances; as to religion, I had none. I had lived in the world, and for the world. I had certainly been well instructed in the tenets of our faith when I was at the Asylum (the main character had been raised in a "foundling hospital"), but there, as in most other schools, it is made irksome, as a task, and is looked upon with almost a feeling of aversion. No proper religious sentiments are, or can be, inculcated to a large number of scholars; it is the parent alone who can instill, by precept and example, that true sense of religion, which may serve as a guide through life."
