An Honourable Man Summary

An Honourable Man by Helen Cannam

Charged with high treason, and sent to the Tower of London on suspicion of involvement in the Gunpowder Plot, Philip Blount leaves behind his beautiful fiancee, Honoria Somervell. Her only hope in obtaining his release lies with Sir Gavin Hamilton, a handsome Scottish courtier, and the king's favourite. The ruthless Sir Gavin, instantly attracted to Honoria, offers her Philip's life for her honour. She rejects him only to be told that he will move heaven and earth to bring about her downfall. To his surprise, he is unable to carry out these threats. Honoria seems to have affected him more deeply than he would ever have thought possible. Could this be why the prospect of his marriage to the influential Lady Philomena Sidney has suddenly lost enchantment? Can it be that he needs love more than all the things he has fought for: power, wealth and the King's favour?
