Robert Macomber’s Honor series of naval fiction follows the life and career of Peter Wake in the U.S. Navy during the tumultuous years from 1863 to 1901. At the Edge of Honor is the first in the series and winner of the Patrick D. Smith Literary Award as Best Historical Novel of Florida. The year is 1863. The Civil War is leaving its bloody trail across the nation as Peter Wake, born and bred in snowy New England, joins the U.S. Navy as a volunteer officer and is assigned to steamy Key West for duty with the East Gulf Blockading Squadron. While learning to command in combat, Wake battles enemies afloat and ashore, new to the politics and illicit liaisons created by war. Wake risks his reputation as a tough officer and smart decision-maker when he falls in love with Linda Donahue, whose father is a Confederate zealot. Their love is tested as Wake must make the ugly decisions of war in a beautiful, tropical paradise—decisions that will take Peter Wake right up to the edge of honor.
