My son loved Mueller's children's books so I am delighted that she has written a historical novel for those of us who are older. Besides the history, the story also gives one quite a feel for the nature of the Georgia coast.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

As a descendant of Neptune Small and a student of coastal Georgia history, I'm delighted that this story has been written in honor of my great-great grandfather's heroism. 'Neptune's Honor' touched me deeply. I felt as though I were there with Neptune experiencing his life, hearing the subtle billowing of the Atlantic, smelling musty earth odors of the island marshes and feeling the ocean breezes as they blew on Neptune's Saint Simons Island. While Neptune's Honor is a very touching and powerful story of love, loyalty and honor, it is based on the life of a privileged slave, and in no way represents the level of intense bondage and deprivation endured by the vast majority of my enslaved ancestors.
