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. Point of Honor is the second in the series and winner of the John Esten Cook Literary Award for Best Work in Southern Fiction.

The year is 1864. Peter Wake, U.S.N., assisted by his indomitable Irish bosun, Sean Rork, is at the helm of the schooner St. James, a larger ship than his first command in At the Edge of Honor. Wake's remarkable ability to make things happen continues as he searches for army deserters in the Dry Tortugas, discovers an old nemesis during a standoff with the French Navy on the coast of Mexico, starts a drunken tavern riot in Key West, and confronts incompetent Federal army officers during an invasion of upper Florida.

Along the way, Wake's personal life takes a new tack when he risks reputation for love by returning to the arms of his forbidden sweet-heart, the daughter of a Confederate zealot. Key West provides a unique setting for them to prove that their love is strong enough to overcome the insanity of the war. And through it all, even when surrounded by the swirling confusion of danger and political intrigue, Peter Wake maintains his dedication to balance on the point of honor.

Point of Honor
by Robert Macomber

Continuing the saga of US Naval Lt. Peter Wake, author Macomber takes his hero aboard a new and larger schooner, the Saint James. Aided by his trusty and often amusing sidekick mate Rork, Wake is sent on ‘mission impossible’ to aid the US Army against the Rebels in a mosquito-infested land attack. Literally out of water and outnumbered, facing inept instructions from poorly-informed and stubborn superiors, how can our hero with his burden of added personal responsibility survive? Is honor enough?
Without telling too many of the story’s details here, it is noted that Macomber has the ability to keep his reader interested in Wake’s ongoing exploits, cushioning each story with just enough history and description of Florida during the Civil War - one can feel it, taste it, and smell it.
It’s not really a spoiler to know Wake survives -- after all, there are several more books in the series! However, how and with whom he manages to land on his feet after inadvertently insulting many of his superiors and living by his own code, keeps the reader speculating to the last page.

After having read all of the Jack Aubrey books I was surprised to find out that there is another fictional nautical hero with whom I can now become acquainted. I had the pleasure of meeting the author at the United States Power Squadrons 100th Anniversary Annual Meeting in Jacksonville, Fl and immediately checked out his books on Amazon. As a sailor myself (small day sailer) I am intrigued by the descriptions of life aboard a sailing vessel in the days when sailing was still the main propulsion for ships the world over. The adventures of the hero of this series not only is a good sailing master, his personal sense of honor makes him a great naval commander. I look forward to many hours of reading of his exploits.

Great series of books, get 1 and you'll want them all! Amazingly, the author has visited every place that he's written about! What an interesting person to check out the facts as he writes the continuing story of Peter Wake. Once you start reading, you just can't wait for the next book to be published!

You don't have to be a student of the Civil War or naval history to get hooked on Bob Macomber's books. Although I try to read as much fiction and non-fiction as I can regarding the Civil War, I approached his first book (At The Edge of Honor) with some hesitation because of my ignorance concerning ships in general and the naval aspect of the Civil War in particular.
By the time I finished the first book in the series, I was ready to dive into "Point of Honor" to see what next lay in store for Peter Wake. Macomber's writing style lets you become a part of the crew and his method of allowing the reader short glimpses into the life of Peter Wake is always timed perfect. After a short time the naval and ship terms became second nature to me in large part because of the way the author talks you through the routine and drills.
The battle scenes are always interesting and his writing skills with regards to the ships and the areas they travel make it obvious that Macomber makes good use of his experience and research. I wait with anticipation for the next book in the series.

I liked Robert Macomber s writing style. He obviously loves the beauty of the Gulf Coast, it's flora, fauna and especially its sunsets. He s got a great grasp of maritime history and knowledge of the Civil War.
Entertaining and educational. Brings the Civil War in Florida in 1864 to life.
