Edge of Honor by Gilbert Morris



Best-selling inspirational author Gilbert Morris creates absorbing historical novels filled with authentic details and true-to-life situations. With this unforgettable story of redemption and honor, he demonstrates that good can be found anywhere-even in the aftermath of Civil War destruction. Quentin Laribee has a bright future as a surgeon in New York City. Not only is he considered one of the best, he plans to marry beautiful Irene Chambers. But he is sent to southern battlegrounds where he accidently kills an enemy soldier in the act of surrendering.

especially if you like historical fiction  . Morris won a Christy Award for this book. One of the best books I have read. His characters, setting, and plots are very real and he makes you feel as if you are right there with the characters. As always with Morris, God is always an important ingredient. Nov 25, 2011 Catherine Sandy rated it really liked it. This was a real good story about love, integrity, the importance of faith and forgiveness.

Honor compels him to see to the welfare of the dead man's family. Quentin moves from New York City to the little town of Helena, Arkansas, where he attempts to save the wife of Breckenridge and her children from financial ruin. But in trying to solve one problem, he creates another, falling in love with the widow of the man he killed-a woman who knows nothing of his terrible secret. Two women beckon Quentin-one to a life where his gift as a healer can prosper beyond his wildest dreams, the other to a truer but impossible love.

Gilbert Morris is one of today’s best-known Christian novelists, specializing in historical fiction. His best-selling works include Edge of Honor (winner of a Christy Award in 2001), Jacob’s Way, The Spider Catcher, the House of Winslow series, the Appomattox series, and The Wakefield Saga. He lives in Gulf Shores, Alabama with his wife, Johnnie. There are 3 scenes in the book that standout as some of the best ever: 1) The Massage - I am a 66 year old Navy vet having spent only 4 years in the service. I usually do not enjoy the sexual scenes, but there are two in this book that are better and very crucial to the story. The massage scene is one of the more sensual I have read.

This is a really good novel about a young Lieutenant at sea on a guided missile frigate during the Vietnam War. The ship is plagued with heavy drug use by the sailors, exacerbated by Lyndon Johnson's requirement that the armed forces accept 100,000 "category four" recruits -- persons with the lowest category of intelligence test scores and educational levels (normally not qualified for enlistment). The protagonist is faced with a brutal choice -- go along with the chain-of-command's deliberate blind eye towards heavy drug use (and occasional illegal "off the books" punishment of druggers) or stand on principle and insist that when drug use is discovered that it be punished according to regulations. Of course, Navy careers are fragile, and incurring the ire of the Captain and Executive Officer by turning in the drug-abusing sailors is a sure way to end one's career. A dilemma indeed.
The novel contains a somewhat sordid sub-plot about infidelity by the Lieutenant's young wife. This is a constant hazard of service life, but honestly I did not think that this sub-plot added to most readers' enjoyment of the novel.
I am a fan of author Deutermann. However, I must note that he seems unable to craft a satisfying ending to many of his novels, this one included. We never really find out what happens to the protagonist, his marriage, and his career, which is a shame, because Deutermann succeeds in making the reader care about these things.
I served in the Army a few years after Vietnam, and I can certainly confirm that heavy drug use in the armed forces was a very serious problem during this era. I do not know if the problems in the Navy were as bad as Deutermann portrays in this novel, but I wouldn't be surprised.
Overall, this is an excellent novel with lots of action, intrigue, and character development. Deutermann needs to pay more attention to his endings; here he just leaves the reader hanging. RJB.

I have read several of the Navy related books by the author. So far I have enjoyed them all, but The Edge of Honor is one of may favorite books about the Navy. There are 3 scenes in the book that standout as some of the best ever: 1) The Massage - I am a 66 year old Navy vet having spent only 4 years in the service. I usually do not enjoy the sexual scenes, but there are two in this book that are better and very crucial to the story. The massage scene is one of the more sensual I have read. 2) Galley Croc - I love a book that is both serious but can occasionally make you laugh, and I laughed out loud at the crocodile on board. 3) Awaiting the chaplain - the Navy wives waiting for the bad news and how that scene was handled brought tears to my eyes. I have not strayed into other non-Navy novels of Capt. Deutermann, , but if I have any complaint, it is there is not yet a sequel to this story. I am not even sure the end result of the inquiry, it seems to end, leaving the reader in the lurch. This was only the author's second novel, but the main character Mr. Holcomb, is so compelling, I desire more of his continuing adventures. I am saddened I have not yet found the sequel if one exists. I ask the author to consider writing the sequel....even though it is now over 20 years since this book was published, I can hope he gets one out soon.

I was the CIC Officer and an Evaluator on the USS Biddle DLG 34 on her 1972 Westpac deployment. Thankfully we did not have as bad a drug problem as the Hood! However I did spend months doing port and starboard Evaluator watches while we were Red Crown. Thankfully when we were attacked by MIGs we shot four and were not hit, thank God. The realism in this book is great. Reading the last chapters made me think how lucky we were. Great book.

While there are many US Navy books out there, particularly from the era of World War II, this is an opportunity to learn about the Navy's support of our air war over North Vietnam through the eyes of a young Weapons officer on just such a mission. At the same time, the book weaves in the realities of racial tension and drug usage by shipmates, an undeniable fact of that time period regardless of the branch of service. The personal issues associated with a newly-married young officer, his shore-bound wife, and the temptations of famous ports-of-call balance on a knife edge with the interpersonal workings of the ship in harm's way and those sailors and officers, including the Executive Officer and the ship's Captain, who are involved in varying and often surprising roles in dealing with combat, life & death, Navy expectations, drug usage, and its eradication. The book starts a bit slow, but once the foundational personalities are laid out, the action begins and builds to a masterful ending. Highly recommend this book.

This was one of those books that took a sweeping story and wrapped it around some incredibly memorable characters and locations. An epic tale of the civil war and the consequences that go with that.

Quentin Larabie is a successful surgeon whose life seems mapped out before him. He's engaged to a lady of high society in New York City and his career is going from strength to strength. But whispers of disquiet linger as he wonders if he really loves his fiancé and the plans she and her father have for his future.

Then the civil interrupts all this by conscripting him to the battlefield as the war is almost over. Separated from his camp he finds himself eye to eye with the enemy and in a panicked heartbeat he shoots - killing the man who he then finds was trying to surrender.

Wracked with guilt - he begins a pilgrimage to find the widow and children of the man he killed and in someway atone for his actions.

I fell in love with Quentin's character - the dedicated surgeon if a little thick when it came to being manipulated by his first fiancé. His selfless quest to see the soldiers widow cared for and protected was heartfelt and genuine.

I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a historical tale with a lot of heart and soul.
