I really LOVE the Honor Harrington series by David Weber. The characters are so alive, so full and rich you lose yourself in the stories. In At All Costs Honor and Hamish and Emily come together and become a family just as all heck breaks loose as the war with Haven comes to a head. There are so many emotional high points in this story. I go back and re-read these stories at least once a year just because they are such emotional roller coaster rides. Honor Harrington is the ultimate in heroines. She's strong, honest, principled and moral. She epitomizes the woman warrior. Her people idolize her. Yet Honor is so human. She's strong, yes, but she has self doubts, she carries her pain for lives lost and taken inside and it she forces herself to higher standards than anyone else. Awesome reading!
