"Lemons and Lemonade "
House of Lords voted to exclude countess Harrington, and used it's political power to ruin her career, despite House of Commons support she was beached,put on half pay, her ship (NIKE) was passed on.
Instead of sitting and waiting for new assignment, which probably would never come, she decided to take care of business on Grayson, her Stadthold is growing, her investment was good, but you can't change everyone on the planet in just a few years.
It is not very far from "religious fanatic" to "terrorist".
The War continues, revolution in Peoples Republic of Heaven(PRH) doesn't' help the case, though the government policy changed, it's still singing the same tune, obvious reference to USSR and People Republic of China .
11 Prize Super Dreadnoughts given as a gift to Grayson by Admiral Alexander are almost fixed, PRH is getting ready for new offensive.
Grayson's understand, when god gives you lemons, you need to make Lemonade.
So they offered Grayson Space Navy (GSN) commission to the most experienced officer in the star system.
The next book in the series is "Honor among Enemies"

The Honor Harrington story continues and I feel Mr. Weber has firmly hit his stride with this book.
I enjoyed the previous books very much, but this one has the feel of a book where the author is at the helm and in every sentence and on every page, he just tells you to fasten your seat belt and hang on (if you can).
Mr. Weber, through his masterful story construction wrings out every human emotion possible, relentlessly, but it only made me hungry to plunge into the next books.
In previous reviews I've read criticism of Ms. Johnson's narration, well, to me, she is simply superlative, her style and her charactarisations add a dimension to the book that is hard to quantify but are the icing on the cake.

again I was crying with this book. I need good things to happen to Honour.
If you could sum up Flag in Exile in three words, what would they be?
Exiting, Devastating, Satisfying
What was one of the most memorable moments of Flag in Exile?
I dont want to post spoilers but it takes you on a ride of emotions from one particularly devastating moment that brought me to tears to satisfaction in retribution. I dont believe in an eye for an eye in real life but there's something satisfying about it in stories.
What about Allyson Johnson’s performance did you like?
She reads well and helps to convey who is who as well as bring the emotion across as well.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
If I had the time to listen from start to finish I would have done!
Any additional comments?
The Honor books are well written, exiting books and every one so far has not failed to grab me. At its core this is a story about religious fanaticism and how far these zealots will go and the prices they are prepared to pay to follow what they wrongly believe is a path of righteousness. Its about how they will make every excuse in the book to justify the wrongs they do.
