About the Author:
Pamela Bauer Mueller was raised in Oregon. She has worked as a flight attendant, commercial model and actress, English and Spanish teacher and a U.S. Customs Inspector. She now lives on Jekyll Island Georgia with her husband Michael and their cats Sukey Spice and Morgan Maurice.
Pamela’s children and young adult books have awarded her the 2006/2008 and the 2009 Georgia Author of the Year titles, three Mom’s Choice and Children’s Choice gold medals, the Independent Publisher Gold Book awards and other national awards with Writer’s Digest and ForeWord magazines. In her sixth historical novel, she introduces us to two female Civil War spies, Antonia Ford and Pauline Cushman, and their true stories of deep patriotism, deception and duplicity.
About the Book:
Dr. Samuel Mudd, a simple country doctor, found himself caught up in the vagaries of history, loss, betrayal and unimaginable deprivation. He paid the consequences for treating the broken leg of President Lincoln’s assassin?an unjust conviction based on political expedience?and imprisonment in Fort Jefferson on a remote island in the Gulf of Mexico. Deprived of liberty, bound in chains and banished from home and family, he spent four years living under appalling conditions.
Then the yellow fever epidemic swept through the island prison. Dr. Mudd battled the disease ceaselessly to save those who imprisoned him, before falling victim himself. After the epidemic had run its course, 300 surviving soldiers signed a petition to President Johnson to free Dr. Mudd. Yet he continued to fight relentlessly to gain his release through the federal judicial system. Through it all, he maintained his strong principles, humanity and most importantly, his hope.
