Published a year or two after David Weber’s first Honor Harrington novel, Feinttuch is not as interested in space battles as he is in the angst of leadership. When a chain of disasters kills the senior officers of the UNS Hibernia on its way to an airless mining colony, 17-year-old Midshipman Nicholas Seafort finds himself in command.

I guess if the takeaway is supposed to be "life is messy" and that we change as much in good ways as in bad - then maybe
