I love reading Gilbert Morris! Apr 22, 2002
Reading his books are like sitting down with a cup of tea in front of a fireplace and having a heart to heart talk with Dad! All of his books are so interesting, so full of romance, adventure, and depth of character! Edge of honor was superb! The Lord always talks to me through Gilbert Morris writings!
A View of the Complicated Post-War South Oct 24, 2000
Gilbert Morris has managed to integrate the guilt of a Yankee toward his war deeds into a journey of self forgiveness and discovery in the EDGE OF HONOR. The opposing emotions of one who is duty bound to fight for his nation , yet honor bound to mininster to the sick and dying is a wrenching study in the strength of character of one human being. To further complicate matters by falling in love with the widow of a casualty of the struggle who happened to be on the opposite side of the fight... well; Could it get any more difficult? Yes, if you were the dealer of the death-blow to said casualty! Magnificent period imagery, heart-tugging interpersonal relations. Gilbert Morris is a fine writer and a very competent historian.
A wonderful Civil War romance Aug 3, 2000
I found this book to be written exceptionaly well. It's nothing less than what Gilbert Morris usually writes. However, it was a bit hard to believe the situation happening, although it definatly could. I found it romantic and enjoyable reading, but give it a four because it didn't give me quite as big a thrill in reading it as most of his other work does. It was however, a wonderful book and I would still highly recomend it for reading. You will go with a northerner as he travels to the south to help out a woman whose husband, he has killed during the end of the Civil War. It was an accident that he killed this man and finds it his responsiblity to care for his wife. So off he sets to help her, but finds love instead. Go with him as he travels to a place that people have made him feel less than welcome. Enjoy your reading!
Great book! Jun 14, 2000
Happened across this book in the bookstore. I have never read any other books by this author, but I was intrigued by the storyline on the book jacket and the time period (I love Civil War era history). I couldn't put this book down (there is life without the internet! ) and finished it in 3 days. Highly recommend this book!
Deffinate must have! Jun 5, 2000
This book is exciting and one that I had a hard time putting down. Set in the Civil War times it is filled with details of the war and a twisted love story plot. Being an avid reader of Morris' books, I found this to be one of my favorites of his writtings. I would recommend it to anyone!
